Dear Colleagues,

We are honored to welcome you to the 16th edition of the International Health, Safety, Environment and Sustainability Conference and Exhibition (IHSES), returning to the Middle East on 10–12 September 2024, at the Abu Dhabi Energy Centre, UAE.

IHSES is one of the energy industry’s premier global events highlighting best practices and challenges. This biennial conference has brought together experts from all over the world to share new ideas, process improvements, technological advancements, and innovative applications, to enhance HSE performance for over 25 years. It provides a neutral forum where a wide range of perspectives and concerns from a variety of stakeholders can be explored.

The theme of the conference, HSE, and Sustainability Excellence: Empowerment through Leadership, Diversity, and Innovation, reflects the current landscape of the evolving industry and future solutions, where the role of new technologies, innovations, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) implementations will be showcased as valuable tools to enhance HSE performance and prepare our industries for fundamental shifts in our industry.

The SPE IHSES conference attracts more than 1,000 health, safety, security, environment, and social responsibility leaders and professionals in the international energy sector. The 2024 edition is expected to include global energy professionals from regional giants, oilfield services companies, technology providers, and global thought leaders, who will be participating in the panel sessions, technical sessions, and seminars.

This year’s selected technical and panel sessions are not only based on topics important to the energy business but the interlace of global matters and our industry. These topics include chronic unease as a vital leadership behavior for HSE excellence, human factors, empowering people and building HSE talents, digital transformation, and unlocking the potential of artificial intelligence. Furthermore, the conference will address climate change and how to drive sustainable development as well as environmental and social performance to create long-term value for people, businesses, and societies around the world.

I encourage all professionals and experts from across our sector to attend and join the discussions and collaborations and take advantage of the learning and networking opportunities.

I look forward to your active participation and the opportunity to meet with you here in Abu Dhabi. Meanwhile, we rely on your support to spread the SPE IHSES event among your professional colleagues and encourage them to participate and take full advantage of such a unique and prestigious event.
