Enticing opportunities: The role of Industrial Partnerships in a shifting economic landscape.


I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit the ADIOC website where you can find out all of the upcoming plans for our next big event.

ADIOC has established itself as a leading international event and a meeting point where all of us get the chance to discuss different issues relating to global offset, countertrade, industry and education, with a particular emphasis on the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.

ADIOC 2017’s theme aims at looking into opportunities for augmenting industrial partnerships to guarantee sustainable capabilities in the future. We hope that the conference theme and deliberations will translate into tangible outcomes and are excited to have you contribute towards that.

We look forward to meeting and interacting with you at ADIOC 2017, and we wish you a pleasant stay in Abu Dhabi and a fruitful outcome.
