The 8th edition of the Middle East Technology Forum for Refining & Petrochemicals took place in Dubai from the 19–21 of February 2018.
The forum focused on the need for innovation through technology as well as continued refining and petrochemical integration in order for the region to maintain its competitiveness, particularly in the current market conditions with fluctuating oil prices and the resulting impact on margins.
The conference topics were excellent and to the point. The organizing team were outstanding and very helpful. The slido idea was new and amazing. The speakers were brilliant and knowledgeable
ME-TECH is one of the most beneficial conferences because of the variety and depth of information in the refining and petrochemical industries
EPC Events always have a very high standard of presentations and I am very pleased to say that ME-TECH 2018 continued that tradition. I look forward to 2019!
