Here's what you can expect at ARABAL 2017, hosted by Sohar Aluminium

Muscat: Sohar Aluminium has announced the line-up of speakers for 2017 Arab International Aluminium Conference (ARABAL), that it is hosting this year at the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, Muscat, from November 6 to 9, 2017.
The speakers include industry leaders from Norway, Australia, China, USA, Russia, Iran and India, for the international event, and will feature a total of 12 sessions over three days, including panel discussions, case studies and research papers presented by 66 speakers to offer insights into the sustainable growth of the region's aluminium industry.
Engineer Said Al Masoudi, CEO of Sohar Aluminium, said, "The conference’s list of speakers was carefully crafted by our team to deliver a wide range of topics in the aluminium industry that stretches across multiple sectors. ARABAL 2017 will contribute towards the vision of utilizing a meeting of the minds to facilitate knowledge-sharing and set the foundation for a new business ecosystem that drives value creation."
More than 500 delegates from around the world have registered to participate in ARABAL 2017.
The most anticipated panel on the first day of the conference is Session 1, which will bring together the most senior executives of the primary aluminium smelters in the MENA region for a panel discussion focusing on the challenges and opportunities facing the industry. The distinguished panellists will also share their thoughts on the potential implications for existing smelters around the world once regional players ramp up capacity.
A number of leading automation firms will also showcase their most innovative findings and future developments for the ongoing challenges of finding a balance between automation and human personnel in smelter operations — a topic that has been generating a lot of attention in the industry.
