The Egypt Petroleum Show (EGYPS) to take place in May 2021 with over 500 exhibitors and 35,000 attendees expected

Global industry experts mark their calendars for May 2021, for the 5th anniversary edition of the region’s largest oil and gas exhibition and conference


dmg events, organisers of the Egypt Petroleum Show (EGYPS), and the Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, are pleased to announce EGYPS 2021 will take place from 31 May - 2 June 2021. 

The May-June dateline strategically provides the opportunity for key international, regional and local 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). 

Additionally, May offers safer planning for international travel and a more appropriate timeline to reconnect face-to-face with a wider and larger network of existing stakeholders and forge new business relationships as the world and industry looks to move on from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

EGYPS 2021 will continue to contribute to the development of the industry, providing the regional platform to address 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 said: “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, “Holding EGYPS 2021 in May next year is an opportunity to highlight the status of the oil and gas industry and ongoing collaboration in light of current global circumstances, and discuss the solutions and more importantly partnerships that will contribute to achieving progress in the industry”. 

dmg events Global Energy President, Christopher Hudson said: ‘We are pleased to be hosting the fifth anniversary edition of EGYPS in May 2021.  The important role played by the Egyptian government, represented by the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, is reflected in the multilateral partnerships being implemented on a regional and international level to harness Egypt’s potential and industry positioning”. 

We look forward to welcoming the global oil and gas community to Cairo in 2021 and are also pleased to advise the Show will return to its traditional February timeline from 2022.
