Message from Founder & Chairman

Dear Exhibitors and Visitors,

Over 19 years, WETEX has established itself as one of the largest and most important specialised exhibitions in the region. WETEX is organised under the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Minister of Finance and President of DEWA. The exhibition has become a leading global event, and a key platform that brings together exhibitors, visitors, experts, specialists, decision makers, and investors interested in the water, energy, and environment.

WETEX has been growing every year, attracting more sponsors, partners, specialists, experts, and government organisations. The 19th WETEX attracted over 2,000 exhibitors and 31,000 visitors from over 50 countries, in addition to 75 sponsors. Because of the increasing demand for participation in the exhibition, space has been expanded to cover 70,000 square metres. WETEX 2017 coincided with the 4th World Green Economy Summit, and the 2nd Dubai Solar Show, which covered 14,000 square metres. WETEX is organised under the umbrella of Green Week, which features a series of community-oriented environmental activities, making it unique event as it reaches all of society.

Exhibitors, sponsors, and visitors have been valuable in reinforcing WETEX’s position as one of the specialised exhibitions in the world. Your participations also reflect your commitment to the sustainable development, and accelerating the transition towards a green economy, not only in the region, but all over the world.

I thank your efforts, which have contributed to developing WETEX to be an important meeting platform for exhibitors, decision makers, investors, and visitors. I look forward to welcoming you to the 20th WETEX, which is organised under the theme ‘At the Forefront of Sustainability,’ from 23-25 October 2018 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. You can avail of the great investment opportunities it offers, as well as meet specialists, experts, decision makers, and visitors from all over the world.
