"We are deeply honoured to be hosting this important global event at ADNEC," said His Excellency, Ahmad Humaid Al Mazrouie, Managing Director of ADNEC.
"Abu Dhabi has been a world leader in energy production for almost half a century and an environmental protection advocate, making it the ideal site for the World Future Energy Summit.

We are very excited about this event, as the world will be watching Abu Dhabi and ADNEC."
Plans are being put in place to manage the extraordinary delegate list, which includes presidents, royalty and high ranking government officials from more than 25 nations including the USA, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Iceland, the Maldives in addition to Sheikhs, VIPs and high ranking government officials from the UAE.
Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, WFES is one of the world's largest and first-of-its-kind conference and exhibition in Abu Dhabi to address the importance of global energy conservation.
"WFES 2008 has been conceptualised to become a leading global platform to address the world's most pressing environmental challenges," said Turret Middle East, CEO, Richard Hease.
"It is a unique opportunity to join world leaders and international experts in discussing a wide range of issues and energy policies. Abu Dhabi is the ideal location for this discussion to take place. With ADNEC's state-of-the-art facilities we are able to produce royal openings, incorporate over 80 visionary speakers and showcase over 200 exhibitors."
The WFES, which will open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., will occupy four halls within the world-class multi-purpose exhibition centre, while the WFES conference will gather leading innovators, educators, scientists, venture capitalists and experts to share their experiences, practices and views on energy conservation in ADNEC's conference rooms.
Participants will also be able to enjoy a wide range of luxury amenities and business facilities available within the ADNEC complex, designed to optimise their participation.
