Infra Oman & Electro Oman 2017
Infra Oman 2017 (co-located with Electro Oman 2017)
Infra Oman - dubbed as one of the largest building and construction expo in the Middle East has been continuously defining the industry’s development for the last 6 years. It is considered as the annual meeting place for industry leaders, suppliers and buyers in the Sultanate of Oman. Infra Oman has proved to be an ideal starting point not only for the local companies, but also for foreign entities that are more determined to be part of Oman’s growing market.
The 9th five-year development plan (2016-2020) attaches a great importance to construction development by ensuring optimum utilization of resources and investment opportunities in the various governorates in the Sultanate. The private investments shall be in commodities production activities (32.6%), services activities (37%) and 29% in infrastructures. Targeted projects for private sector (on either individual or partnership basis) cover Oman railway, tourism structures within Port Sultan Qaboos, Port Khasab, South Batinah Logistics Area, some fisheries projects, Ad Dhahirah Economic Area and Shinas Port. 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.
Infra Oman 2017 will be co-located with the Oman Electricity & Energy Exhibition which 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.

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 among experts, business people and the general public, Electro 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.
