Agility given Adipec role for two years

April 2015

Kuwait-based Agility, a leading global logistics provider, has been awarded a contract by dmg::events to manage international freight and provide on-site handling services for the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (Adipec) in 2015 and 2016. Both events will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre in UAE.

Adipec is a major global trade show and conference for oil and gas professionals. The 31st edition of Adipec will be held from November 9-12. As the official freight and on-site handling contractor, Agility Fairs & Events will be responsible for assisting exhibitors and their contractors with logistical requirements and shipping of exhibits to and from the ADIPEC events.

Julie Allen, operations director of dmg::events for the Middle East, said: “We have worked with Agility on Adipec for the past three years and have been impressed by their impeccable ability to manage every eventuality in a timely manner with patience and professionalism, including handling freight in places you would not think possible with some very challenging pieces of equipment. They truly go above and beyond to help pull together such a successful show, and not without a smile and a sense of humour.”

“Adipec is a world-renowned event in the oil and gas industry, and our involvement as the preferred logistics service provider is testament to our successful track record in supporting numerous trade events organised by dmg::events,” said David Richards, managing director for Agility Fairs & Events UK. “We look forward to making Adipec yet another successful event.”

Weeks earlier, Agility, was awarded a new contract by ExCeL London to be its exclusive supplier of logistics services. The contract was awarded after an extensive tender process.

Under the new three-year contract, Agility Fairs & Events will partner with ExCeL to provide event organisers, exhibitors and contractors with specialist event transportation and logistics, pre- and post-show storage, on-site receiving and delivery, forklift/mechanical handling equipment, and customer logistics advice and support.
