ABB, Awal Gulf back key MEP show in Bahrain
Manama, January 9, 2014
Engineering giant ABB Technologies and Awal Gulf Manufacturers have signed up to back the upcoming Arabian MEP (Mechanical Engineering Plumbing) Conference and Exhibition in Bahrain.
The two have signed up with organisers Exposure Media as platinum sponsors, reported the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
The sponsorship agreements were signed by ABB low voltage products divisional manager Mahesh Lakhe, Awal Gulf central air-conditioning projects manager Vinod Coelho and Exposure Media managing director Sijo Joseph.
The event, at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre, will be held under the patronage of Works Minister Essam Khalaf from March 17 to 19 and will bring together professionals and experts from the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) industry in the region and beyond.
"We have been part of this show earlier and have seen good opportunities not only to showcase our products but also to interact with the best in the business in the region and elsewhere," said Lakhe. "We are very encouraged with the response and wish to take it further."
Coelho said the exhibition is an ideal platform for Bahraini companies to showcase their world-class products.
"As a leading player in this field in Bahrain, we are very happy to be part of this growing event," he added.
Joseph said they are hoping to attract even better participation at the event this year.
"We have had fairly successful events earlier and are looking to make this even bigger. We are very encouraged with the participation of ABB and Awal Gulf as our main sponsors," he added.
More than 100 exhibitors had taken part in the show last year where several initiatives by the government and public sector were discussed.
Business deals worth $380 million were also concluded during the show, which was attended by more than 3,500 visitors.
In its previous editions, the show had highlighted breakthrough technologies and innovative ideas focused on promoting the most advanced equipment and technology.
Among those attending will be those involved in manufacturing of HVACR and allied equipment and components, mechanical and plumbing contractors, architects and designers as well as public utility providers and government agencies.
Joseph said the support from the Works Ministry had been of great significance and was a major contributor towards making the event a success. – TradeArabia News Service
