February 2018

More than 5,000 visitors attended the HVACR Expo Saudi, and co-located FM Expo Saudi and Saudi Clean Expo last month in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, marking an 18 per cent increase in attendance when compared to the previous year’s edition.

On the back of growing relevance in the country, next year’s edition of HVACR Expo Saudi along with co-located events will be held for the first time in the capital at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Centre from January 14 to 16, 2019, revealed the organiser dmg events Middle East, Asia and Africa.

Roni El Haddad, event director of HACR Expo Saudi, said: “A spike in the turnout of visitors to this year’s expos are a clear indicator that growing HVACR and facilities management sectors in Saudi demand a dedicated platform where industry professionals can network, do business and discover new technologies.”

Current standards and regulations surrounding HVAC-R in Saudi Arabia are recognised as a key driver behind the sector’s continued growth and was a popular pick amongst topics discussed at most of the free-to-attend CPD (continuing professional development) sessions as well as the first-ever EU-Saudi Arabia Energy Efficiency Meeting, which kick started the event, said a statement.

“Industry professionals whether from the products side or engineering side, construction side or facilities management side, must brace themselves to deliver high quality output to sustain and grow in the market,” advised Mohamed R Zackariah, CPD speaker at the event and chief consultant at Suhaimi Design - Protecooling.

“Definitely Saudi Arabia is an exciting place to be in during the next five years for HVACR professionals,” he added.

The market for HVACR systems in Saudi Arabia was estimated to reach $3.33 billion in 2017, and is expected to double to $6.36 by 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 13 per cent, according to TechSci Research, boosting the confidence of manufacturers, suppliers and distributors.
