Three of the aluminium industry’s major events were held in the same place at the same time as Abu Dhabi hosted business leaders from around the world.

During Aluminium Week Emal hosted the Gulf Aluminium Council’s (GAC) Annual Dinner at Emirates Palace on 29 April.

This was followed the next day by the Annual General Meeting of the International Aluminium Institute (IAI).

On the same day, 30 April, the CRU’s 17th World Aluminium Conference began. Emal was the host sponsor of the three-day World Aluminium Conference and the conference’s signature dinner.

Al Mazrooei continued: “It was an important week for the aluminium industry and for the UAE. We were able to showcase to the world that the UAE is the land of opportunities for a successful business.”

Delivering the inaugural address to the CRU World Aluminium Conference, Al Mazrooei, praised the vision of the country’s leaders in establishing a primary aluminium industry in the UAE.

Opening the conference, CRU Chairman, Robert Perlman, praised the work of Emal and Abu Dhabi in attracting the highest ever number of delegates - 420 from more than 30 countries.
