Keen on doing business in the Gulf region? This might be your conference.
The Gulf Environment Forum – the first comprehensive environmental conference and exhibition to take place in the Persian Gulf region – has been planned and is going to take place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on March 7-9, 2010. The forum is being held under the patronage of HRH Prince Turki bin Nasser bin Abdulazziz, the Chairman of the Presidency of Meteorology and Environment. It is also being supported by the United Nations Environment Programme and the GCC union of chambers of commerce and industries.
The forum will focus on a variety of environmental issues, including: sustainable development, water, clean energy, recycling, e-waste, carbon trading, industrial wastes treatment, air pollution, coastal protection, bio-system and nature preservation, climate change, studies and consulting, and legal framework and policies.
The program for the conference aspect of the forum has not yet been published, but according to the forum’s website it will invite delegates to participate in dynamic, interactive discussion panels. The website also notes the economic benefits of attending the conference – delegates will have the opportunity to network with top executives, better understand important issues within the market, learn about new movement in the sector from industry experts, and develop new contacts.
The industry exhibition will be another one of the economic benefits of attending the forum (which may be the best incentive yet to get regional companies to pay attention to the environment). Companies and professionals that are involved in a variety of environmental areas (such as air and climate, energy and renewables, environmental management, soil and groundwater, monitoring and testing, sustainable development, waste and recycling, and waste and wastewater) will be able to exhibit their products and concepts at the Jeddah Hilton hotel as part of the forum.
Interested in participating in the forum? You can register online to participate in the conference or email alain (at) bme-global (dot) com to book your stand for the industry exhibition. Check out the forum’s website for more information if you’d like to be a sponsor.
