Conference to highlight Kuwaiti projects
Kuwait City, October 31, 2011
Opportunities in Kuwait’s $13.4 billion projects market will be in the spotlight at the Kuwait Energy and Infrastructure Projects 2011, a four-day conference being hosted by Meed, a primary source of business intelligence for the Middle East.
The conference which is to be held from October 31 to November 3 at the Kuwait Marriott Courtyard, Kuwait City, will update delegates on major developments in Kuwait’s project market and address the key issues in delivering the successful implementation of the national plan.
The first and second day will focus on the energy sector which includes determining Kuwait’s long–term energy vision, procurement and development strategies, and perspectives on Kuwait’s energy sector, a statement from the organizers said.
Day three will be dedicated to the infrastructure and construction sector, with first hand information on mega projects. The last day has been set aside for a Masterclass on understanding and dealing with the Kuwaiti procurement process and requirements in line with recent changes in legislation.
Keynote speakers addressing the conference include Farouk Al Zanki, CEO of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation and Shaikha Al Bahar, CEO of National Bank of Kuwait (NBK).
Edmund O'Sullivan, chairman, Meed Events, said: “This is the seventh year in a row that we are hosting this conference, and every year proves to be an invaluable opportunity for those at the cutting edge of Kuwait’s future to discuss its development.
“It is the essential platform for all organizations- local, regional or multinational, looking to enter or grow their business footprint in Kuwait’s booming economy,” he said.
With an array of industry leaders and government officials already confirmed to attend, the event promises unrivalled opportunities for developing new business partnerships and new investments, the statement said.
Kuwait Energy and Infrastructure Projects Conference 2011 is part of Meed's comprehensive portfolio of large-scale summits and conferences that offer businesses unique one-to-one networking opportunities and facilitate the showcasing of solutions to key target groups and niche professionals, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
