The two largest storage tanks exhibitions in the Middle East become one

Published:  09 December, 2015

Single event will be held in Dubai in April 2016.

The announcement follows the acquisition in April this year of Tank World Expo and Tank Storage Magazine by Easyfairs, the owner of Tank Storage Middle East.

Unified under one core brand - Tank World Expo 2016 - the event will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre on 12 and 13 April 2016, aimed at suppliers and decision-makers from the Middle East and North Africa regions.

The inaugural Tank Storage Middle East event took place in Abu Dhabi in January 2015.

According to event manager Nick Powel, the Middle East storage sector is experiencing an almost unparalleled growth: 'It has already established itself as one of the most important regions in the world and does not look like it will be slowing down any time soon; no greater example than the development of the world’s largest terminal in Oman.'

The Middle East is continuing large-scale investments into tank storage area. The UAE is set to double its capacity in the next few years and Fujairah is currently second only to Singapore in terms of bunkering capacity. As well as being the second most productive region in bunkering capacity, Fujairah is now ranked as the third largest oil storage and products trading centre in the world, behind Rotterdam and Singapore.
