The World Utilities Congress 2023 will take place from the 8th to the 10th of May at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre in Abu Dhabi. ESB International is honoured to be both exhibiting and presenting at the event.   

The Congress, under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Member of the Executive Council, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Committee and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Office, and hosted by TAQA, focuses on digital transformation across the global utility landscape. 


World-Leading Energy Engineering Expertise  

Over the three days, the Congress will provide a global networking and knowledge exchange platform drawing together ministers, global leaders and key power and water industry stakeholders to discuss the business-critical needs, network, and identify new solutions and opportunities.
