The United Arab Emirates has hired Hill+Knowlton Strategies to handle strategic communications and global PR for the World Energy Council’s 24thWorld Energy Congress slated for 2019 (Sept. 9-12) at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center.

The Congress headlined “Energy for Prosperity,” will attract heads of state, energy executives, community leaders and members of academia who will discuss the “energy trilemma” of security, equity and environment sustainability.

Abu Dhabi won the bidding to host the 2019 Congress in 2014.

H+K’s offices in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and London will begin their PR work by showcasing the planning and progress made to put on the event.

The WPP unit will promote a flurry of announcements leading up to the Congress and conduct outreach to leading influencers in the energy sector.

The London-based World Energy Council has more than 3,000-member organizations in 90 countries.
