Alba backs key regional trade event
Manama, November 19, 2012
Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), consistently ranked as one of the largest aluminium smelters in the world, is sponsoring a major aluminium conference opening tomorrow in Doha.
The 16th international Arab Aluminium Conference & Exhibition (Arabal2012) will run until November 22 at the Grand Hyatt Doha.
Arabal 2012 presents the perfect opportunity to meet with every single primary aluminium manufacturer in the region as well as provide aluminium producers, suppliers and consumers from around the world with a platform for exploring business possibilities.
Tim Murray, Alba’s chief executive officer, will join the CEOs of other Middle East smelters during a panel to talk about the future prospects of aluminium industry in the Middle East as well as the changes that will shape the future of the smelters in this region.
Alba was represented in Arabal’s steering committee by manager for Sales (GCC & Middle East), Abdul Aziz Daylami.
Alba’s chief marketing officer Jean Baptiste Lucas said: “As the first aluminium smelter in the Middle East, Alba is proud to support any initiative that increases global recognition for the region as a fast emerging hub for aluminium production.”
“With smelters reducing capacity or closing down in many parts of the world, the Middle East continues to demonstrate a positive trend with production on the upswing along with announcements of new smelters being launched.
“Alba is certainly proud of its association with Arabal and is confident that it will play a key role in raising the region’s profile on the international stage.”
An exhibition is also being organised on the sidelines of the conference. As one of the exhibitors, Alba will be setting up a dedicated stand to showcase its portfolio of aluminium products, its quality focused production process, its environmentally friendly and safety conscious operations. – TradeArabia News Service
