Electro Oman – Oman’s leading exhibition in Power,
Electricity and Lighting is dedicated solely to energy and clearly
partitioned to cover all aspects of the sector, including electricity,
water, lighting and HVAC, with a special emphasis on sustainable
solutions and renewable energies. Capitalizing on its huge appeal

Oman will draw a large number of decision-makers and professionals
in the field, including government representatives, investors and
buyers both from the region and neighboring countries.
The expo aims to create a platform for gathering investors, decision makers, representatives of ministries and municipal authorities, as well as business leaders in renewable energy, energy efficiency and environmental sectors.
The 9th Five-Year Plan for the Sultanate, which is the last of the series of 5-Year Plans for the Vision 2020, reflects prudent and realistic goals. Many items have been revised when compared with actual averages observed over 2011-2015. The aim is to cut non-core expenditure in favor of additional attention towards investment spending on selected key programs and projects. Private sector role is the backbone of the plan and the government have already been engaged in supporting this view through either the public private partnerships (PPPs) or providing additional facilities.
Historically, the government succeeds in engaging private sector in vital sectors such as power and water. Thus, we expect similar achievements in the current and upcoming plans.
Owing to its strategic location, diverse economy and infrastructural support, the Sultanate of Oman and mainly the GCC continues to be one of the most lucrative and beneficial trading and logistics hubs in the world. A well-planned and developed infrastructure in the form of ports, shipping, aviation, warehousing and free-zones has played a key role in boosting the region’s supply chain and logistics sector.
