His Excellency continued "May/June 2021 strategically provides the opportunity for key international stakeholders to reconnect face-to-face in a safe show environment organised under the globally recognised framework and guidelines of the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI) and the World Health Organisation (WHO). The May/June dateline also offers safer planning for international travel and a more appropriate timeline to reconnect with a wider and larger network of existing stakeholders and to forge new face-to-face business relationships as the world looks to move on from the COVID-19 pandemic."

The annual three-day Show is hosted under the theme of “North Africa & the Mediterranean: Delivering Energy Today” which highlights the regional industry growth roadmap and the accomplishment of becoming one of the largest producers of energy resources.

EGYPS 2021 will continue to contribute to the development of the industry, providing the platform to discuss current global challenges, promoting constructive partnerships and facilitating the exchange of technical expertise to innovate and create new opportunities to steer a sustainable energy future for the Eastern Mediterranean region and the world.

His Excellency Tarek El Molla, Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources and Chairman of EGYPS commented, “The Egyptian government is looking at additional ways to encourage international investments in the oil and gas sector to achieve high growth rates and boost Egypt’s global and regional position as the energy hub of choice.” El Molla continued, “Egypt, North Africa and the Mediterranean basin countries are witnessing a rising number of new discoveries, which emphases the necessity to achieve digital transformation at an accelerated pace and imposes the need for solid infrastructure and collaboration in different industries. Holding EGYPS 2021 in May next year is an opportunity to highlight the status of the oil and gas industry and work together in light of current global circumstances, and discuss the solutions and more importantly partnerships that will contribute to achieving progress in the industry”.
