Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), a key player in the aluminium industry, will host the 18th International Arab Aluminium (Arabal) Conference in November 2014 under the theme - “GCC: An aluminium power house”.
Arabal is being hosted for the fourth time by Bahrain, and this year it is expected to attract more than 700 delegates including key decision makers and industry leaders from all sectors of the aluminium industry in the region and across the world, said a statement.
The announcement was made during a meeting held by the Arabal Organizing Committee on April 22 at the Gulf Hotel, Bahrain.
Details of the event will be announced later, the statement said.
Alba chief executive officer Tim Murray said: “As one of the major aluminium smelters in the Gulf region and the Middle East, Alba is proud to host Arabal, an event of international prominence for the aluminium industry. The event is also a testimony to the cooperation shared between the region’s primary aluminium producers, thus emphasising our support for the sector.” -TradeArabia News Service
