Recent reports on the flourishing market for petrochemicals, plastics, printing and packaging in the Middle East have led the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) to launch 26 projects at a total value of SAR 56.34 billion, with projects worth SAR 172.76 billion still in the planning stage. Many Saudi companies such as Saudi Basic Industrial Corporation (SABIC), Saudi Ploymers and Petro Rabigh, are contributing to the development and growth of the sector. Moreover, regional and international companies from the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, China and Turkey, Egypt, Lebanon, India and Japan among others, have also played a significant role in the prosperity of the sector.
In light of this growth, many companies are sponsoring specialized exhibitions in these sectors. Riyadh Exhibitions Company (REC), organizer of conferences and exhibitions in the KSA, has unveiled the list of Official Sponsors for Saudi Plastic & Petrochem 2015 and Saudi Print & Pack 2015, which will be held concurrently from March 1 to 3, 2015 at the Jeddah International Center for Conferences and Exhibitions. It is noteworthy that various significant companies are participating at the events such as: Rowad Plastic Group, Sadara Chemical Company, Zamil Plastic Industries Limited, 3P Gulf Group, ASIBEX, DC Print Liquids Technology, Paxxal Inc., Technical Industrial Automation and Techno Converting Services (TCS).
The two exhibitions will be held under the patronage of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. Among the attending companies, SABIC will participate in the two events as a Diamond Sponsor, while Saudi Polymers will be the Platinum Sponsor and Petro Rabigh the Gold Sponsor. Kamil Al Jawhari, Project Manager of the Saudi Plastic & Petrochem 2015 and Saudi Print & Pack 2015 exhibitions said: “We thank the sponsors and appreciate their continued efforts to support Saudi Plastic & Petrochem 2015 and Saudi Print & Pack 2015. We promise to strengthen our efforts in the upcoming editions in order to develop and expand them in favor of the Saudi market and its most competent bodies and companies."
“The process of developing the plastics, petrochemicals, printing and packaging sectors is very important for all stakeholders in the Saudi market in particular and the regional market in general. One of our key priorities is to promote and expand the two shows and achieve success, the way we have done over the years. We will continue to achieve more in the interest of exhibitors and organizers by continuously adopting transparency and a firm commitment to sustainability and focusing on achieving a positive impact for the sector’s exhibitors and visitors,” concluded Al Jawhari.
