Oman Heads to Marmomacc
This year’s Marmomacc 46th International Exhibition of Stone and Design and Technology will have some new attendees. Four companies from Oman will be traveling to Italy for one of Europe’s most impressive fair in stone and design later on this month. Areas of interest include: machinery, marble, instrumental products, stone processing, and more. Experts in contract and construction sectors will find the exhibition particularly beneficial, being able to view more than 1,500 exhibitors from over 50 countries. Indeed, according to the Oman Observer the exhibition is seen by many as “the essential business exhibition for international producers, designers and decision makers seeking success in an increasingly specialist marble and stone market.”
Oman Companies at Marmomacc
The four companies that will be in attendance from Oman are: Al Madina Engineering & Industrial Works LLC; Al Shanfari Marble Company LLC, Al Turki Enterprises LLC and the Gulf Stone Company SAOG. This is definitely a momentous time for Oman business in general. Indeed, as Acting Director General of Export Development at the Public Authority for Investment, Promotion & Export Development, Faris al Farsi said, “Marmomacc 2011 is going to be the best yet. There’s an amazing variety of people, both exhibitors and visitors at this important four-day show and a really all-round experience is had by the exhibitors. At the end of the day, we want the participating Omani companies to meet existing and potential customers and have the opportunity to do some serious business networking.”
<h2>Good for Omani Business</h2>
In addition, as Al Farsi noted, that given the economic slump, often a trade show is the first thing to be reneged upon. But, as he also pointed out, “if you save on the cost of participating but miss out on the RO 100,000 contract or sales opportunities that the trade show could have generated, you aren’t coming out ahead. To make sales, you have to make contacts and the Omani companies participating with the Authority at Marmomacc clearly understand that. I’m confident that the Omani exhibitors will leave Verona with a wealth of information on great new products and ideas to boost their business. Indeed, I fully expect them to meet the right sort of people and get great feedback and positive business leads.”
Omani business definitely has much to look forward to.
