There are so many factors to consider and less time to execute as demand only continues to grow in a world where we need to deliver everything sustainably.
Now that we have got you thinking and sparked your next bright idea, seize the opportunity by submitting your abstract at the GDA International Downstream Conference and Exhibition (GDA 2020). This strategic downstream event in the Middle East brings together decision-makers, operators, vendors, engineers, academia, policymakers and tech consultants to find solutions for global business challenges and unlock opportunities through collaboration and partnerships.
Empower the industry, share your big idea with the entire downstream value chain at GDA 2020 in Bahrain from 14-16 September 2020. Focusing on "Downstream Turning Points - Capitalising on Transformation" the technical program explores six areas including - Sustainability, Resilience, Disruptors, Future Growth, Digital Transformation, and Human Capital.

Are we really innovating?
We are now at a stage where innovation is the core of all business opportunities. The more we step outside routine innovation models and step into more creative and collaborative approaches, that's when the magic happens. The new leaders in innovation will be those who figure out the best way to leverage a network of outsiders and turn those interactions into tangible business models.
The downstream industry is at the cusp of transformation, we need to put our heads together to think; What would the future of downstream oil and gas plants look like? Can demand planning be connected to supplier systems for real-time optimisation? Can we manufacture additive spare parts and efficiently move those spare parts through autonomous vehicles?
