3M turns to GulfSol 2013 as exhibitor list keeps expanding

One of the World’s leading science and technology companies, 3M, has selected GulfSol 2013 as the perfect platform for it to expand its brand within the exciting, and ever-expanding, MENA solar industry. With sales in the region of US$30 billion, over 84,000 employees and active locations in more than 65 countries, 3M is truly a global giant. “This is great news for GulfSol 2013” says Derek Burston, exhibition director, “as the fact that one of the World’s leading technology companies has put its faith in an inaugural show is a clear indication that GulfSol 2013 is exactly what the solar industry has been calling out for in terms of the MENA region” he adds. Other recent exhibitors such as Hensel Electric, Apex Power and UM Green Lighting, would also seem to agree, as space sales begin to accelerate with still over six months to go until the show takes place. “People are genuinely excited about such a focused event” says Burston, “and also the innovations we are putting in” he adds. “One of these is GulfSol T.V. – a dedicated television studio on site that we will use to interview leading players and exhibitors, and then broadcast around a set of strategically located screens around the exhibition hall during each day. Not only is this far more effective than a conference, keeping everyone in the same exhibition hall, but it also provides unsurpassed media promotion opportunities for corporate videos and thought leadership”. To find out more about GulfSol 2013, reserve your space and your slot on the dedicated on-site television channel, contact the team today via dburston@bowheadmedia.com or through the website, www.gulfsol.com
