OGS 2009 offers dedicated forum to cater to career development needs of young professionals in Middle East's oil & gas sector

OGS 2009, the 16th edition of the premier oil, gas, renewable energy and automation event, has revealed that several top engineering and technical graduates as well as professionals in the early stages of their career have expressed interest to participate in the Excellence in Engineering Forum 2009, one of the key segments of OGS 2009. The Forum has been established to be the definitive platform for young industry professionals to discuss the opportunities and challenges that they are likely to face as they seek to build a career in the energy sector. OGS 2009 will be held from 27th to 29th October at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Leading public and private sector organisations specialising in technology and engineering have also confirmed attendance at the Excellence in Engineering Forum 2009, looking to interact with top engineering talent and technical personnel from the region and beyond.

Anselm Godinho, Managing Director, International Conferences and Exhibitions (IC&E), the organisers of OGS, said, "Excellence in Engineering Forum offers a unique opportunity for top graduates and young professionals to identify various career enhancement prospects in the region. Furthermore, the event will feature speakers from leading companies in the oil and gas, construction and infrastructure industries, who will educate the delegates on the skills and relevant training required for them to optimise their career development potential in the energy sector."

"The Excellence in Engineering Forum will essentially bridge the gap between education and the industry, ensuring that young engineers are aware of opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. Furthermore, the Forum will help OGS 2009 realise its core objective of reaching out to engineers. These knowledge workers are an integral part of regional development, and we want to offer them a forum to network and interact with students, while catering to the professional, technical and knowledge requirements of the entire energy value chain," added Godinho.

OGS 2009 will be held in conjunction with the Alter Energy Convention 2009, a conference-led exhibition dedicated to the management of carbon and water footprints in the Middle East using alternative energies.
