Baghdad Fair Grounds, the official government convention center
Iraq Energy EXPO and Conference, is the only authorized and certified energy tradeshow and conference in Iraq, by authority of State Company of Fairs, Ministry of Trade and through the laws of Iraq passed by Iraq Parliament and implemented by the Council of Ministers
Sponsored by the Ministry of Oil, Ministry of Electricity, Ministry of Research and Technology, Ministry of Water Resources, Ministry of Trade and Energy Committee - Iraq Parliament
Iraq by all accounts has the second largest and the least developed oil reserves in the world. Decades of embargo, neglect, and three wars left the country in dire need of hundreds of billions of dollars to rebuild existing producing wells and new discoveries yet undiscovered. Iraqi government is committed to increase production and export to 12 million barrels a day. Need we say more, there is no better opportunity than Iraq Energy EXPO to connect with decision makers?
Key to any successful networking event is “who will be present”?, ask yourself, how many conferences on Iraq oil did you attend, what did you get out of it, any tangible benefits, the answer most likely NO, because you did not interact with decision makers. Many conferences on Iraq oil for the last few years are taking place outside the capital Baghdad, with negligible results because decision makers are in Iraq. Only Iraq International Company for EXPO the organizers for the first show in Baghdad in 2008 are able to bring over 8,000 visitors from the Ministry of Oil IRAQ ENERGY expo & conference 2008 , http://www.iraqenergyexpo.com/2008/
Ministry of Oil announced the 4th round of contracts in January 2012 4th plenty of possibilities
Iraqi Ministry of Oil has 90,000 employees most have never been outside the country for decades, we know firsthand the strong desire for technical and non-technical managers from MoO to see new technologies, products and services and get to know who is who in the oil business, what is available in products and services, over 8,000 will attend, visitors that are prequalified and registered by us, one by one
First Iraq Energy EXPO in 2008 was a landmark event with international oil companies from around the world.

Most companies are confused when they try to know who is who within MoO, incredible bureaucracy and slow communication. Answers to questions like: who is who, who makes decisions, what is the process of bidding, how can my company qualify, how can my company get on the list of preferred venders, what are some of the direct phone numbers to top managers and decision makers, Iraq International Company for Conferences and Tradeshows (IICCT) knows, and we will do our best to answer those questions.
