DMCC launches Energy Club for energy professionals
Club is open to UAE-based individuals working in the energy industry
The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) has announced the launch of the Energy Club, a not-for-profit initiative it has co-founded with global law firm CMS, which aims to create a network of energy professionals within the UAE.
The club, which is open to UAE-based individuals playing an active role in the energy industry, will offer a space for industry participants to share experiences, seek new business opportunities, form partnerships and discuss challenges and opportunities on a regular basis.
“At DMCC, we know that businesses and industry participants look for a place where they can enlarge their network, exchange ideas, access new markets and trade with confidence,” said Gautam Sashittal, CEO, DMCC. “We are home to 800 energy related companies and look forward to receiving them, alongside our co-founders CMS, at these regular industry get-togethers."
The Energy Club was launched at an event held at Almas Tower, which was attended by representatives from leading energy companies such as Petrofac, Milio, Dubai Petroleum, Mercuira, Brunel, Standard & Poor's and Foster Wheeler.
The next Energy Club event will be an oil & gas seminar focusing on Iraq, which is scheduled to take place in May 2014.
DMCC is the free zone authority for the Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT) Free Zone, and has more than 8,000 registered members.
