The 2016 annual industrial event is scheduled to take place from February 9th – 11th 2016.

“The 2016 Exhibition takes place at a watershed period for the economies of the region,“ says Jubran Abdulrahman, the Managing Director of organisers' Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions. “The economic importance for encouraging industrial promotion has never been required more than at this time of declining oil prices. Gulf Industry Fair will focus on promoting economic diversification through the elements of industrial development.”

Alba, sponsors of GIF 2016, will encourage the growth of the downstream aluminium sector. The world's fifth largest aluminium smelter, recently announced the start on its Pot Line 6 expansion project.

The new production line will turn Alba into the world's largest single-site smelter plant and provide more metal to the region’s manufacturers utilising aluminium.
