The Arab International Aluminium Conference and Exhibition (ARABAL) is the premium trade event for the Middle East’s aluminium industry and the only conference in the world attended by every single primary aluminium manufacturer in the region. It is the event of choice for anyone interested in the Middle East aluminium industry.

ARABAL first began in 1983 with Kuwait Aluminium Co. bringing together the leading figures in Middle East Aluminium to strengthen ties and discuss the issues of the day to provide an overview about the entire aluminium industry. Over the past 29 years, it has become an event of international repute, bringing together leaders from the aluminium industry across the world to network and conduct business.

The 2015 event, hosted by Ma’aden in Saudi Arabia and combining an international exhibition and strategic conference, will focus on the integration of the aluminium upstream and downstream sectors throughout the GCC.
