Nov '13
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is all set to host the 11th edition of one of the largest industrial events in the petrochemicals sector, the Saudi Plastics and Petrochem 2014 fair, from February 17 to 20, 2014, in the capital city of Riyadh.
Held every two years, the fair is touted as one of the biggest international petrochemical trade events where leading industry leaders, key decision makers, developers and other professionals get an opportunity to interact with each other, exchange business ideas, as well as create a business-to-business networking relationship.
The four-day exhibition, organized by Riyadh Exhibitions Company, would be gathering local as well as international industrialists and professionals from the petrochemical sector, in addition to various governmental industrial commissions from the Gulf States.
Zeyad Al Rukban, deputy general manager of Riyadh Exhibitions Company, said the industrial sectors in Saudi Arabia are witnessing unmatched growth, as multi-billion dollar investments are being made in developing the country’s infrastructure.
Saudi Plastics and Petrochem 2014 fair will reflect the pulse of Saudi Arabia’s petrochemicals industry, which is witnessing profound growth as well, he added.
Mr. Rukban said that the event, which is designed as an ideal business-to-business networking platform, will offer innovative products and technologies that firms operating in the petrochemical sector can leverage to stay competitive.
The trade fair is expected to have exhibitors from nearly 26 countries displaying various products including latest technologies in machinery, equipment and processes, in addition to raw materials and semi-finished products in petrochemical fields.
