The Egypt Petroleum Show took place in Cairo, Egypt between the 14th and 17th of February. The first ever Oil and Gas exhibition in North Africa was inaugurated by His Excellency Abdel Fattah Al Sisi. The show opened its doors to 400 regional and International companies and welcomed over 10,000 visitors from around the world.
We were immensely pleased to have exhibited in Africa for the very first time. Egyps 17 created a fantastic platform for us to network and exchange information with other professionals in the industry. Correspondingly, it also gave us an opportunity to showcase our continuous development in infrastructure, our technological investments, geographical expansions and ventures into new markets.
Alco Valves Group was proudly represented by James Hinchliffe (Our Sales Manager for EMEA) and Lewis Pope (Our External sales Engineer) at the exhibition. On talking to James Hinchliffe about the experience at EGYPS 17 he said, “Considering it was the first time Alco Valves Group was exhibiting in North Africa, the response we received was great. We had a number of visitors over the three days of the exhibition. Among these were industry leaders, distributors and other ends users. Likewise, we had visitors who showed a keen interest in our range of products. We can say Egyps 17 has certainly helped in achieving our primary objective which was to raise Alco’s profile in that part of the world.”
Our exhibition stand remained busy throughout the three days with visitors from companies such as Apache, BP and ENI. This provided us with an opportunity to exchange information about the industry while at the same time exhibit our wide range of products and emphasize on the customer service we provide at Alco Valves Group.
It has definitely been an experience for our sales team and has aided in building contacts with customers and network with them on a larger scale. We would like to thank Egyps 17 for all the support they have provided us throughout the exhibition and we eagerly look forward to Egyps 18 and all it has to offer.
