Energy Infrastructure Security, Safety, Protection and Resilience

The future of global economic growth in the coming decade relies significantly on changes related to energy security as the global energy demand continues to grow. The demand for energy in developing countries remains a major catalyst for energy demand growth. This dependency on energy supply makes it imperative to ensure a safe and secure production, storage and distribution of these resources in order to keep the economies running.

It is against this dynamic backdrop that Messe Frankfurt Middle East, organisers of the annual Intersec exhibition in Dubai, is delighted to launch the Infrastructure Security Conference Middle East (InfraSec 2016) which will bring together some of the region’s most renowned thought leaders from business, government, international organisations, research institutions and universities.

During the two day conference, participants will engage in sessions that will explore new and existing energy trends, challenges and creative solutions to address one of the world’s most topical and challenging issues of safety and security in the energy sector.
