As an exhibitor, Qatalum was able to present its technologies and innovations to the top echelons of the global industry.

Aluminium China 2013 is Asia’s leading aluminium industry platform, annually held in Shanghai. By presenting customized match making programs, buyers with emerging and established demands from booming industry clusters as well as a conference and seminar program, Aluminium China 2013 is the first choice for branding, networking and sourcing in Asia, the world’s fastest growing market.

Over 450 international exhibitors from 30 countries representing the entire aluminium value chain - from Aluminium raw materials, semi-finished and finished products to production and processing machinery and accessories - met with 15,000 qualified professionals and buyer delegates from China – the world’s fastest growing market - all the key Asian and other global emerging markets, through the conference’s renowned “business-matching” program.


For Qatalum, ensuring a high profile within the most importance industry events on the world stage is key to sharing information, marketing, learning about developments in international best practice, and networking with potential partners, supply chain linkages and customers.

China is especially important for Qatalum – like all the world’s most important industry players. Alongside China’s enormous production capacity, the country is also the world’s largest consumer of aluminium, a position set to maintain and consolidate in the coming years as the several-hundred million-strong Chinese middle class grows, and the Chinese automobile industry moves from the periphery to the centre of the global industry.

Qatalum DCEO, Khalid Mohd Laram said at the end of Aluminium China 2013: “This is the largest industry event, for the fastest-growing metal industry sector, in the largest market with the largest audience and network of buyers. Exhibiting here allows us to make invaluable connections from throughout the global aluminium supply chain, to ensure we keep our focus on the massive Chinese market, and increase our global branding exposure.

“This conference has allowed many thousands of buyers and industry professionals to learn about what we are doing back in Qatar, and to build the relationships which will be the centrepiece of the company’s future”.​
