The 8th edition of the International Beirut Energy Forum welcomed 1270 energypreneurs from all over the world in a very special event held under the High Patronage of HE. General Michel Aoun President of the Lebanese Republic. The synergy that the International Beirut Energy Forum has gained throughout the years, has made this event a landmark for the sustainable energy sector, a lighthouse for development, dialogue, hope, and progress.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all involved in the forum, particularly our supporters: the Ministry of Energy & Water, the League of Arab States, the European Union, the United Nations Development Program, ESCWA, The Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea , the Lebanon Oil Installations, the Regional Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, the Order of Engineers and Architects of Beirut, the Industrial Research Institute without whom the show would not have been possible.
Organized by MCE Group and in strategic partnership with the Lebanese Center for Energy Conservation, The International Beirut Energy Forum 2017 witnessed a growth in the exhibition area compared to last year’s edition.
This is due to the fact that whether through national partnerships and initiatives, or through regional cooperation and international collaboration, Lebanon is contributing to the positive momentum of sustainable energy, trying to shine like a star.
The stimulating business-focused atmosphere was clearly felt by all during the three-day event with the announcement of several bids in the renewable energy sector making the International Beirut Energy Forum 2017 the most successful edition thus far for exhibitors and delegates a like.
