The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, DEWA, has invited companies and organisations that work in the areas of energy, renewable energy, water and the environment to participate and showcase their products and services at the 20th Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition, WETEX, and the third Dubai Solar Show.
Such companies can benefit from the opportunities present in the UAE and the region and can review key projects and investments that will be announced at both exhibitions, which will be held from 23rd to 25th October, 2018, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. The exhibitions will be held under the "Green Week," which will include various environmental activities and events that aim to raise awareness about key energy conservation resources and promote sustainable development and the green economy in Dubai.
