Oil and gas leaders from across the UAE are set to come together in Abu Dhabi on 16 May, as part of the 2nd ISA UAE Automation Conference and Exhibition 2017 to discuss automation and digitisation enabled efficiency and growth opportunities for the country’s process industries.
Organised by DMS Global in partnership with International Society of Automation (ISA), the event will take place during 16-17 May at St Regis Nation Tower, Corniche, Abu Dhabi, UAE. The conference provides an important platform for automation professionals, equipment manufacturers and service providers to explore new strategies and solutions and showcase the latest products and most recent technical innovation in this area.
Qasem Al Kayoumi, technical centre manager, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) is set to deliver a keynote speech on the opening day. According to DMS Global, the industrial operations and automation landscape in the UAE is evolving rapidly, with the industry undergoing its biggest transformation since the industrial revolution.
A new wave of technologies will make industrial operations more efficient, more connected and more secure. We will see greater connectivity with a more advanced human to technology collaboration where every button, every pixel, every computer is part of a digital network, within companies and beyond.
