Riyadh Exhibitions Company has announced that it has recently signed an agency agreement appointing J.P.Wright to represent REC in the United States and promote various trade exhibitions and conferences organised by REC. The US has been a leading trading partner of Saudi Arabia as according to official industry figures, the total agricultural, fish and forest product exports from the United States to Saudi Arabia in 2009 reached USD 721 million, while the retail packed or consumer-oriented food products reached a record USD 248 million, representing 34 per cent of the total US exports to Saudi Arabia.
The agreement was signed by Prince Saud Bin Abdallah Al Faisal, Chairman of REC, and John Parke Wright IV, Chairman of J.P.Wright. The events covered by the agreement are Saudi Build & Saudi Stone 2010, Saudi Agriculture 2010 and Saudi Agro-Food 2010. The agreement is in line with REC's increasing marketing efforts in the US, taking advantage of the growing interest of US investors, service providers and product distributors in the Saudi market.
Mohammed Al Hussaini, Deputy General Manager, REC, said: "The various exhibitions and conferences REC is organising provide a mutually beneficial networking platform for both US and Saudi market players. It is therefore very important for us to create greater awareness about the strategic and practical advantages of the industry events that REC is offering. The new partnership with J.P.Wright is part of our ongoing efforts to boost our presence in the US market and effectively reach out to different target audiences."
John Parke Wright IV said: "Riyadh Exhibitions Company is widely recognised for its premium-quality industry events. We believe that we can build on REC's impressive track record to develop an awareness campaign about the emerging investment and business opportunities in Saudi Arabia and how REC's exhibitions and conferences serve as a gateway to these lucrative prospects."
