Manama, September 30, 2010
Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) is to sponsor the Aluminium 2012 ninth World Trade Fair and Conference, one of the foremost international events for the industry, which will be held in DŸsseldorf, Germany, in 2012.
The sponsorship agreement was signed by Alba chief executive Laurent Schmitt and event organiser Reed Exhibition's Michael Kohler during the Aluminium 2010 fair held in Essen.
Aluminium 2012 at DŸsseldorf will be attracting the who's who of the industry encompassing the entire spectrum of the value chain - from producers, processors, technology suppliers to consumers.
'Alba's stand was visited by numerous people from the industry who were keen on knowing more about the company's products, and also, on how to enlarge co-operation in the future,' said Schmitt.
'Our main objective behind participating in Aluminium 2010, and most importantly, supporting the event in 2012, constitutes an ideal opportunity for our company to strengthen its position in Europe as well as in other global markets in response to the company's plans to increase global presence for its high-grade aluminium products.
It also provides a key incentive to boost Bahrain's reputation as an industrial hub, and contribute to the kingdom's economic success,' he added.
More than 20,000 visitors from over 100 nations are expected to attend Aluminium 2012, which will offer an ideal meeting place for suppliers of raw material, semi-finished and finished products, surface treatment and producers of machinery, plant and equipment for aluminium processing and manufacturing.
The exhibition area has been expanded to 75,000sqm, and will be divided into several pavilions such as, the foundry, surface, primary, welding and joining, solar, piecework coating and magnesium.-TradeArabia News Service
