Major Chinese expo with Gulf Industry Fair

April 2019

Gulf Industry Fair 2019, the northern Gulf’s leading event dedicated to industrialisation, will be held together with the China Machinery Fair, the Middle East’s largest Chinese trade expo, in Bahrain in September.

The China Machinery Fair is born out of the partnership signed by Bahrain-based Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions (HCE) with Silk Road Steps to Eco-Culture Committee secretary general Zhang Ming, last December.

 Gulf Industry Fair 2019 will be held under the patronage of HRH Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa from September 24 to 26 at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre.

 HCE managing director Jubran Abdulrahman said: “The China Machinery Fair is a part of the Belt and Road policy of China which is looking to build on China’s historical trade corridor with the Middle East.  Visitors will be able to view products of over 100 Chinese companies specialising in heavy machinery and industrial machinery and applications.”

 Yong Fu, chairman of Beijing, Sea Level Science and Technology Company, said: “We are organising in China a sophisticated group of companies, many of them are new to the GCC market to take part in the show. We believe that they will be valuable partners to develop the industrial capacity of the GCC.”

The Gulf Industry Fair 2019 will focus on the 4.0 Industrial Revolution and its importance to the GCC’s economic diversification.

The fair will highlight the current trend towards automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. Companies that will be showcased at Gulf Industry Fair specialise in aluminium, energy and environment, industrial metals, industrial processes and manufacturing, ports and maritime, industrial facilities and logistics, training for industry and fire and safety sectors.

 “The Gulf Industry and China Machinery Fairs are taking place at a transformative era for the global economy. Gulf Industry Fair will have a strong international presence from participants from Germany, Italy, US, India, Turkey, Pakistan and Japan,“ added HCE exhibitions director Ahmed Suleiman.

 Supporting organisations include Middle East Solar Association, Trade and Development Authority of Pakistan, Women in Business International, AHK Saudi Arabia, India’s PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Bahrain Industrial Association.
