DUBAI, 9th July, 2018 (WAM) — Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is organising the 20th Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, and the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance, and President of DEWA.
WETEX will be held from 23rd-25th October 2018 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. For the 5th consecutive year, DEWA is organising WETEX under the umbrella of Green Week, which includes various environmental activities and events to raise awareness about the importance of using energy and water sensibly, and the key components of sustainable development and green economy.
The 20th WETEX and the 3rd Dubai Solar Show will provide an opportunity to review the latest innovative solutions in energy, water, and the environment. Many of these technologies will be unveiled for the first time, especially in renewable energy, water, sustainability and rationalisation. The two exhibitions will act as an integrated platform for companies and organisations working in these key sectors to promote their products, services and innovative technologies, and meet decision-makers, investors, buyers and interested parties from around the world to make deals, build partnerships, review the latest technologies in these sectors, learn about current and future projects and market needs, and explore opportunities to take part in solar-energy projects and programmes in the region.
“WETEX has become an annual event to launch new technologies, and a destination for decision-makers, investors, and trade visitors from around the world. Over 19 years, WETEX has witnessed the launch of new innovative technologies, many of which made their regional debut through its platform. Major deals and partnerships were signed and major projects announced that have changed the regional and global energy sector. This year, WETEX will continue to present the latest technologies in various energy sectors, while the Dubai Solar Show will cater to increasing demand for solar power,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, Founder and Chairman of WETEX.
