- Cleantech, renewable energy and environmental technologies
- Health care (medical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology)
- Information and communication technologies

The participants will enjoy the support of the Economic and Trade Attachés based in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (also covering the Sultanate of Oman), who will be in charge of organizing business appointments tailored to the participants’ requests. Every stage of the princely mission will also include networking and matchmaking activities.

Riding the Wave of Business Opportunities in the Gulf
Zaventem – 26 November 2013
Is there a market for your small or medium-sized company in the Middle East? This is a question experts on the Gulf region will be exploring together with you on the 26th of November during a seminar jointly organized by ConMec and Etihad Airways in collaboration with the ABLCC.
For many Belgian SME’s, the Gulf Region, with countries like Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, is still unknown territory. Misperceptions about the opportunities, the stability and the business culture remain. The Gulf region, however, constitutes a fast-growing economy with a broad middle and upper class and a large market for top quality products and unique services. Furthermore, there is a lively interest and permanent demand for expertise and know-how. The opportunities stretch far beyond the classical oil, gas and petrochemical industries. The Gulf countries are safe, open and their governments actively promote innovative new business investments. Plenty of reasons to join us for this seminar and discover how you too can “ride the wave of business opportunities in the Gulf.”

Deadline: registration closes 18 November 2013.
Language: presentations will be in English.
Target audience: SME’s form the main target audience for this seminar.
