Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) has started receiving registration requests from exhibitors, companies and visitors for the 22nd edition of WETEX and the fifth Dubai Solar Show (DSS).
The authority is organising WETEX and DSS virtually this year in response to the health pandemic.
The online versions of WETEX and DSS are the first of their kind in the Middle East and North Africa, and will provide a new experience for exhibitors and visitors from around the world.
They will enable exhibitors to display their products innovatively through 3D customisable stands. They also will enable meetings, seminars, and workshops using the latest smart technologies.
“We are pleased to organise the 22nd Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) 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," said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA and Founder and Chairman of WETEX.
"The carbon-free virtual WETEX and DSS introduce visitors to the latest smart technologies and innovative solutions, especially in renewable energy, water, and sustainability, without having to travel. DEWA’s state-of-the-art digital infrastructure more than enough capacity to deal with the challenges of Covid-19 and turn them into opportunities.
"This maintains WETEX’s position as one of the largest and most important pioneering world-class exhibitions in water, environment, and energy. This supports the ‘UAE Green Growth Strategy’ initiative to ensure a better future for the UAE and Dubai, to become the hub for export and re-export of eco-friendly products and technologies.”
WETEX and DSS are being held from 26-28 October 2020.
