The high profile Sarawak oil and gas exhibition will see the participation of prominent players like Shell, Dupont Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Hoerbiger KT Asia Services Pte Ltd, Mozzat Sdn Bhd, PTT Corporation Sdn Bhd, Shenzhen Ocean's King Lighting Engineering Co Ltd and Tenaga Tiub Sdn Bhd.
Firework spokesperson, Jerel Soo, said another exhibition, Palm Oil Expo 2012, would also be held simultaneously with SOGEX in Bintulu which has been chosen as the preferred venue for the international event as it had the distinction of having the fastest growth rate in Sarawak due to its oil palm and oil and gas activities.
"The difference in this year's exhibition is that a large percentage of participants have increased the size of their exhibits and are demonstrating a completely new design concept in their exhibition stands," he said.
"Participants are expected to showcase an incredible range of award-winning products from all over the world while healthy professional debate will be held during our industry seminars and direct access will be provided to real business opportunities,"Soo said. - Bernama
