MEE 2020 Advisory Board

The Middle East Energy (MEE) 2020 Advisory Board comprises relevant high-profile representatives from leading companies working across the Middle East and Africa.

The remit of the Advisory Board is to specifically advise on the content chosen, structure and design of sessions and speakers selected. 

By engaging with the industry in such a way, we are confident that the sessions delivered at the event will meet the key learning and business needs of all our attendees.

Membership of the Advisory Board was purely on an invite-only-basis. Best possible efforts were taken to ensure the entire value-chain of the industry was represented (from the private sector through to government and NGO's)
