“In my new role as event director I will be looking to increase awareness of ADIPEC in the international market, in addition to demonstrating the huge economic importance of the event for the region, having brought in $1.5 billion worth of business alone in 2008.  ADIPEC has already established itself as an event that cannot be missed, and we are confident that 2010 will be the best yet.”
