Riyadh, May 17, 2010

Saudi Arabia is expected to increase its production capacity for desalinated water to 1.127 billion cubic metres in 2010, said organisers of an upcoming expo on water technologies in Riyadh.

Saudi Water Technology 2010, the eighth international exhibition for water technology, desalination plants and accessories show, will run from May 24 to 27 at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

'We have put together a powerful line-up of international manufacturers, suppliers and service providers to ensure a comprehensive showcase of the latest and most advanced water technology and management products and equipment,” said Khaled Daou, project manager of Saudi Water Technology at Riyadh Exhibitions Company.

“Moreover, Saudi Water Technology will bring together key decision-makers from several water authorities and companies around the world, creating an excellent environment to facilitate new business opportunities and discuss potential large-scale projects.'

'With up to 70 per cent of the country's drinking water requirements and majority of urban and industrial centres being supplied by desalination facilities, desalination will surely be a key topic at Saudi Water Technology,” Daou continued.

“Accordingly, we have prepared specialised seminars, workshops and conferences to be participated by all industry stakeholders to promote a synergistic approach in dealing with the country's water challenges,' added Daou.

Saudi Water Technology 2010 will feature the latest services, products and projects from both local and global companies.

The event will be held concurrently with “Saudi Elenex – the 13th international electrical engineering, power generation& distribution exhibition'; 'Saudi Luminex 2010 – the 10th international lighting equipment show', and 'Saudi Aircon 2010 – the 11th international exhibition on air-conditioning, heating, ventilation & refrigeration'. – TradeArabia News Service
