Media Fusion and the Recycling Today Media Group have selected Dubai, United Arab Emirates, as the host city for the first Metals Recycling Conference Middle East event, to take place March 5-7, 2013.
The event will be at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Dubai. It is being organized by Dubai-based Media Fusion, the publisher of Waste & Recycling Middle East magazine, and the United States-based Recycling Today Media Group, the publisher of Recycling Today and Recycling Today Global Edition.
"We're thrilled to cooperate with the team at Waste & Recycling Middle East to offer an event for the active metals recycling and trading community in the Middle East," comments Jim Keefe, group publisher of the Recycling Today Media Group. "The Middle East and adjacent regions have become a vital part of the global scrap trading and metals production industries.”
The event will offer sessions examining global commodity markets for nonferrous and ferrous scrap; updates on customs and regulatory issues affecting traders and shippers; and processing methods and techniques that are advancing the scrap industry.
The two media organizations have previously collaborated on Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference – Middle East, which enjoyed a successful debut in February 2012. The second version of that conference will take place March 3-5, 2013, also at the Hyatt Regency in Dubai.
"We approached Recycling Today about hosting a metals recycling conference because it is clear our region is gaining prominence in this sector on the global stage," says Dr. Kayyum Ali Bohra, CEO of Media Fusion. "Having experienced success with Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference – Middle East, we are confident we can offer metals traders, processors and consumers an outstanding event in the easily accessible and vibrant city of Dubai," Ali Bohra says.
