Vinay T, head of Business Development at Alain Charles Events, commented, “Our research with stakeholders from the oil and gas, construction and tourism sectors revealed that end users are seeking disruptive technologies that will continue to cut LTI and optimise productivity. “We identified a need to access the latest safety solutions for the workforce across the board which led us to create this exclusive platform for HSE companies to display and demonstrate their services and solutions to key players in the region. This is also a premier opportunity to build new relationships and network in person with the MENA HSE community.”
