- PRESS RELEASE
Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco) has confirmed its strategic sponsorship of the upcoming Gulf Industry Fair (GIF) 2013, being staged in Bahrain next week. This follows the signing of a Strategic Energy Partnership agreement with Hilal Conferences & Exhibitions (HCE) for the show, being held from 15 to 17 January at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre (BIECC).
Bapco will use the Fair to raise awareness of its latest strategic projects and investments in both upstream and downstream sectors and related commercial opportunities for exhibitors and visitors.
Ronnie Middleton, Managing Director of Al Hilal Group, the parent company of HCE, said, "We are grateful for Bapco's continued high-level support for Gulf Industry Fair, which demonstrates its ongoing commitment to the Kingdom's sustainable development, in line with long-term national objectives and its role as an economic pillar."
Gordon Smith, Chief Executive of Bapco, said, "Bapco is a key driver of the energy sector in Bahrain and Gulf Industry Fair is a leading commercial showcase for energy companies. It is a good strategic fit."
GIF 2013 is being held at a pivotal time for the energy industry, which is adjusting to changing market dynamics with new investments and innovations. GCC governments continue to prioritise massive industrial investment programmes, while oil prices have reverted to more sustainable levels.
The future of the region's energy industry in the region is particularly bright for the manufacturing and services sectors, which are expected to witness outstanding growth opportunities in the next few years.
In addition to energy, GIF2013 will be a showcase for world-scale manufacturing plants, specialist equipment suppliers, distributors and agencies representing the key segments of aluminium, environmental protection, steel and alloys, industrial processes and manufacturing, ports, logistics and free zones, training for industry, and industrial security and safety.
As well as Bapco, high-level strategic support for GIF2013 is this year provided by Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), one of the world's largest aluminium smelters, Majaal, a leading industrial facilities project and British Offset, a joint initiative which manages the Saudi British Economic Offset Programme.
