Ma’aden, a mining company in Saudi Arabia that owns the world’s biggest, most efficient vertically integrated aluminum complex, recently announced that it is scheduled to host the 19th International Arab Aluminum Conference, ARABAL.

“Hosting ARABAL consolidates the position of ‘Ma'aden’ and its successful journey towards building a reputation as one of the largest mining companies in the world,” Ma'aden CEO Khaled bin Saleh Al-Mudaifer said.

The conference will take place in Nov. 2015 at the Dahran International Exhibitions Center, located in the Eastern Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Its participants will travel around the world to attend the event.

"The conference will discuss current and future challenges for the aluminium industry and the opportunities for industrial integration of Aluminium in the Gulf region and how to strengthen them,” Al Mudaifer said.

The main focus of the conference will be “the integration of the upstream and the downstream aluminum industry across the GCC.” Participants will also discuss related topics, like the future of the worldwide aluminum industry and encouraging positive cooperation between consumers and producers. This will help the industry to attain its common objectives.

“It is an opportunity to review opportunities within Ma’aden projects, while presenting the Kingdom as an investment hub for the aluminium companies which contributes to attracting foreign capital and the localization of global technologies,” Al Mudaifer said. “This global industrial gathering will reflect positively on the aluminium industry.”
