• 4 - 6 October 2010 | Qatar International Exhibition Centre, Doha, Qatar
July 27, 2010 -- POWER-GEN Middle East 2010, the region's premier conference and exhibition for the power and water industries, continues to deliver an excellent range of networking and learning opportunities for the power and water industry professional.
Demand for electricity and water continues to grow at a pace across the entire region and in the GCC in particular and many projects are proceeding despite the tough world economic climate.
The POWER-GEN Middle East conference will focus particularly on project finance with several leading banks sharing their views on the availability of lending. The strategic track will also feature a panel discussion that debates the evolving relationship between major project owners and contractors in the region plus a look at how nuclear power and renewable energy sources are emerging as part of the energy scene.
POWER-GEN Middle East will again be the source of information about technology for the power and water sectors with 21 sessions and around 80 speakers and plenty of opportunity to network with colleagues and industry contacts.

POWER-GEN Middle East is offering delegates a unique opportunity to gain a rare insight to the state of the art facilities at the Ras Laffan B & C and the Mesaieed power complexes.
