SAOGE was launched in November 2008 as the premier event for the Oil & Gas Industry in Saudi Arabia. It was established to meet the requirement for the largest oil producing country in the world to host its own focused oil and gas show a service, which it continues to deliver to the industry.
SAOGE regularly sees great demand from global companies to participate and be at the heart of the industry. The Eastern Province provides the best access to business opportunities for the energy sector, covering more than 33% of Saudi Arabia’s total area; it is the largest province in the Kingdom and the perfect strategic gateway for international trade.
