The four-day event is being held under the diamond sponsorship of SABIC, during 27-30 January 2019, and will bring together leading regional and international experts, decision-makers and pioneers to review potential investment prospects available in the kingdom, which currently possesses 67% of the total GCC petrochemical production share.
Saudi Plastics and Petrochemicals Trade Exhibition is the largest gathering of industry leaders at the regional level, providing a key gateway to access opportunities within the Saudi market in the context of continued government support to provide incentives aimed at establishing a strong base for petrochemical and related industries. The event also highlights the sector’s contribution to economic diversification in the kingdom.
Mohammad Al Al-Sheikh, head of marketing, Riyadh Exhibitions Company, said: “Saudi Plastics and Petrochemicals Trade Exhibition 2019 stands out as a strategic platform to introduce the international investment community to the prospects and opportunities available within the Saudi petrochemical and plastic sector, in conjunction with the growth of petrochemical exports, which represents more than two-thirds of the total industrial exports of the kingdom. It is expected that the local plastic market will grow by 3.2% annually by 2020.”
Al Al-Sheikh added: “The upcoming Saudi Plastics and Petrochemicals Trade Exhibition will build on the success of the previous editions with greater participation from local and international companies, which reflects the growing confidence in the kingdom’s plastic and petrochemical industries. We look forward to this event and invite visitors to be a part of the latest developments in this sector, which drives sustainable growth in the country.”
Saudi Plastics and Petrochemicals Trade Exhibition 2019 is expected to attract significant attendance following the success of the 2018 edition of the event, which saw the participation of more than 520 exhibitors from 25 countries and 10 international pavilions, attracting over 16,000 visitors.
