The 2013 New Nuclear International Conference will take place at the brand new Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi Grand Canal Hotel from the 11th to the 14th of November. The theme of the conference is "Bringing the Nuclear World Together." While the conference is being held Abu Dhabi, this is not just a regional conference. "This conference is directed to every country that is interested in, or is currently developing, a peaceful nuclear power program," says Chuck Goodnight, President of Goodnight Consulting, a US-based management consulting firm serving the nuclear power industry. "Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation is interested in sharing their progress and lessons learned with the nuclear power industry, and we have the platform to facilitate that goal."
Representatives from over 80 countries have been invited to participate, supporting the conference theme by combining experienced nuclear power program executives with representatives from newcomer countries. "Ideally every country in the world with a peaceful nuclear program will send both a government and an industry representative to the conference" says Goodnight.
Notable speakers from around the world are confirmed, including: ENEC CEO Mohamed Al Hammadi, NRC Commissioner Kristine Svinicki, E.ON CNO Bernd Güthoff, and Westinghouse CEO Danny Roderick. "The response and support of industry experts has been overwhelming," Goodnight says. True to the nature of the nuclear industry leaders and experts, many are eager to share their time, knowledge, and expertise in this unprecedented conference setting. We are looking forward to the opportunity of coming together with industry participants from around the world this November in Abu Dhabi.
