The Jeddah Center for Forums and Events is hosting the 16th edition of the Saudi Plastics and Petrochemicals Exhibition from Jan. 27-30.
The event, held under the patronage of Jeddah Gov. Prince Mishaal bin Majed, is organized by the Riyadh Exhibition Company.
The exhibition, supported by both government and private sectors, is strategically important as it provides an important platform for local companies to establish a base for petrochemicals and manufacturing industries in the Kingdom, which aims to enhance the production and export of petrochemicals on a global scale over the next few years in line with Saudi Vision 2030.
The exhibition is being seen as a bridge that connects senior officials, decision-makers, pioneers and regional and international experts together to further explore the potential prospects being offered in the field of Saudi petrochemicals and plastics.
This year’s edition is being sponsored by SABIC, the Saudi Industrial Development Fund, the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu and Invest Saudi.
Mohammad Al Al-Sheikh, head of marketing, Riyadh Exhibition Company, said: “Saudi Plastics and Petrochemicals Exhibition 2019 is one of the pillars of national efforts to increase the petrochemical sector output to $453.3 billion by 2030. The event represents a direct source of access to opportunities within the Saudi petrochemicals and plastics sector, which is experiencing steady growth with continued government support. We are proud to organize such an event, which also represents an important addition to our track record of qualitative achievements in the development, marketing and organization of specialized events and conferences.”
The event is scheduled to coincide with the 16th edition of the Saudi Printing and Packaging Exhibition, which enables Saudi companies to access the latest technologies, services and products related to packaging and printing, offering an opportunity for international leaders to enter the Saudi market.
