Machinex Arabia 2015 leads Kingdom’s industrial drive

The stage is set in Jeddah for hosting the 2015 MACHINEX ARABIA from 9-12 February at Jeddah Center for Forums and Events with the participation of more than 150 national and international companies.
The fifth edition of MACHINEX ARABIA is organized by Al Harithy Company for Exhibitions (ACE). It aims to open opportunities with new machinery, equipment, products and services from leading industrial countries.

The exhibition will be held in parallel with Propac Arabia, Saudi Arabia’s 20th international event for production & processing, printing & packaging, plastic and chemicals , and is the largest and ideal networking and marketing platform that will gather key figures, decision-makers and manufacturers from the global industrial machinery and equipment sectors.

The show has been further expanded to include Metal & Steel, Saudi Arabia’s Premiere show for metal working, metal manufacturing and steel fabrication industry.
The concurrent events are being staged at a time when industrial diversification is gaining momentum, supported by the Saudi government’s generous assistance to establish new industries thus opening not only business opportunities but also employment and technical knowledge to the youth and working towards a comprehensive goal of achieving self-reliance through local production.
The exhibition will create a platform for international companies from Egypt, Finland, Germany, India, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Sweden, Turkey, UAE, UK and USA… to interact and share the technical-knowhow with their Saudi counterparts and also assess the local market requirements.

The complementary events will ensure maximum footfall and business potential to both the Saudi and international business communities.

Therefore, we are expecting a bigger success this time around. "
He further said that Saudi Arabia has witnessed a steady development which resulted in distinguished accomplishments. “This really attributed to the importance of the industrial sector and the support it receives from the government owing to its role in achieving strategic and economic goals of the country.”
He continued “what makes this exhibition very important is because of the expansion of the industries which leads to the increase in the demand for new machinery, equipment, transfer of technology from leading industrial countries.”

According to Siddique, the exhibition categories has been expanded this year to feature more machinery and services for factories; Cleaning, Recycling & Treatment, Compressors & Generators, Construction, Electrification & Climate Control, Factory Plant & Machine Tools, Materials Handling & Vehicles, Measuring & Weighing Devices, Metal Working, Die-casting & Welding, Mining, Oil & Gas, Operations, Maintenance & Training, Plastics & Rubber/Injection, Printing & Packaging, Processing, Filling & Bottling, Pumps & Turbines.
