Bahrain to host key engineering forum
Manama, January 2, 2012
Bahrain is all set to host 'The Arabian Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing (MEP),' a major international engineering exhibition this month.
The two-day MEP insulation and refrigeration show is being held at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre under the patronage of Works Minister Essam Khalaf from January 10, a spokesman of official media partners Exposure Media said.
The event, slated for March last year, was postponed due to the unrest.
'The nearly 2,500 professionals attending the forum will be part of a multinational gathering of industry professionals in the sector,' the spokesman said.
'The event will showcase and demonstrate latest products, services, opportunities and recent trends in the market,' he noted.
He said there will be great emphasis on greener products, energy efficiency and sophisticated technologies being used all over the world. 'The changing technology and human concern for the environment has paved a path to creating newer and innovative products which are available.'
He said the need of the day was that newer technologies should be utilised as much as possible.
'The main objective of the show is to promote the most advanced equipment and technology as well as introduction of civilised methods of work based on the principle of fair competition and contribution to steady development of regional businesses.'
He said the event was also a platform that would give participants an opportunity to come together, learn, interact and develop a new business relationship.
'This will lead to new sale and distribution channels to explore new markets and increasing industry exposure on an international level.'
He said Bahrain being a free economy provides a suitable atmosphere to showcase international exhibitions. 'The country has proved its stand in the international market and attracted many private investors along with its integration with other GCC countries.'
Participants include wholesalers and distributors, contractors and suppliers, manufacturers of equipment and components, architects, technicians and purchasing agents.-TradeArabia News Service
