Event Name: Heat Integration for Energy Efficiency

Date: 7 – 8 November 2013

Location: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia



Networks. Some are efficient, some not. Is your exchanger network the most efficient it can be?

Just like some highway networks are more efficient than others, some heat exchanger networks can be more efficient than others.


And in this age of transparency …


As the world continues to embrace the need to reduce carbon emissions, the interest in energy efficiency will continue to remain high. Therefore, the cost of an inefficient heat exchanger network may be critical to your economic success.

Please note – we are not talking about individual heat exchangers, but the entire network.

As the Middle East grapples with its political instability, safe havens emerge with more promising prospects than ever before. Some are boosted by steady oil revenues and a flourishing local economy, adding buoyancy to private and institutional investors. Yet others rely on continued efforts to ramp up the regulatory environment, thereby welcoming the formation of new institutional investor bodies to manage MENA private wealth. Whichever path regional market players take, the only skill that will underlie success is the ability to act prudently, nimbly and globally.

The seventh annual Middle East Investments Summit is the premium forum bringing together the region’s most sophisticated institutional investors with traditional and alternative fund and asset managers.

The summit offers an intimate environment for a focused discussion of key new drivers shaping traditional and alternative asset allocation.

Delegates: CIO’s, Directors and Managers of Investments, CFO’s/Directors of Finance, Heads of Treasury, and Private/Retail Banking

Mali’s mining & petroleum industry, business as usual

The Ministry of Mines, Republic of Mali in association with AME Trade Ltd & DMC Africa organise the Republic of Mali’s mining and petroleum conference and exhibition taking place from 12th – 14th November 2013Les Journées Minières et Pétrolières du Mali (JMP).

JMP is already an established event in the worldwide mining and petroleum business calendar, it has been organised on a biannual basis since 2005. In 2011 it featured over 700 delegates, 70 exhibiting companies and over 50 presentations were delivered. The event was held under the High Patronage of His Excellency, the President of Mali and was inaugurated by the Prime Minister.

JMP 2013 will consist of conference sessions, workshops and a trade exhibition. The participants will have a chance to join technical visits of some of the Mali’s major mining operations. Despite a backdrop of vacillating and turbulent political situation, Mali’s mining industry is going from strength to strength: gold mining has been largely unaffected by recent turmoil, Mali is diversifying its mining industry to include bauxite, uranium and iron ore potentialities and a new modern mining code was introduced in September 2012. With this in mind the main theme of JMP 2013 will be Mali’s mining & petroleum industry, business as usual!

Training Course: NEGOTIATION SKILLS FOR ENGINEERS AND EXECUTIVES – Mastering effective styles for a win-win result


Negotiation is a central part of business life. Every day we negotiate with our colleagues, employees, suppliers, and customers. Many people find negotiating difficult or confronting because they only see the results as a trade-off, in order for one side to win the other has to lose. Effective negotiators who produce sustainable successful deals know that haggling is not the answer. Instead they focus on mutual gains and the merits of each case are negotiated based on fair objective standards.

This hands-on, practical workshop covers the key ideas needed to negotiate successfully in the workplace. It gets the participants practicing their negotiation skills every step of the way, through the use of role-plays and case studies with every topic. Participants will go away with the knowledge and skills needed to make successful deals faster and with less stress, through the application of this successful method.

Date and Location: 25-26 November 2013, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
