For MFN, being a global publication with readers in nearly 70 countries, it is very important to seek partnerships with leading organizations to improve the networking and awareness of our technologies in the different geographical regions. Metal & Steel Exhibition has had its strong footprint of continuous success confirmed despite the wave of uprisings and revolutionary demonstrations in Egypt and several Arab countries. Metal & Steel Exhibition is now a trusted brand amongst exhibitors and visitors operating in this industry in all the Middle East and North Africa. Cooperation with MFN makes perfect sense in order to maximize the marketing synergies.

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is currently considered a key growth market for the steel industry in consumption and production alike due to the fast-expanding construction & fabrication sector. It has caught the attention of global steel giants and investors to expand or build new steel facilities in this booming market. North Africa and all the Middle East look for a big turnaround, seen from the wave of uprisings and revolutionary demonstrations in the region. However, the tough times are over and the soft breezes of recovery have finally blown across most of the regional markets, albeit with differing degrees of intensity.

Thanks to the excellent technological display of the products at the Metal & Steel Exhibition, in terms of both strength and compatibility with the environment, the Steel Alliance network which Metal & Steel Exhibition has succeeded to create between the Arab industry professionals and international brands, will thus be a key player in the growth of the regional steel & metal industry to come about in the next few years.

MFN has already worked together with Metal & Steel for years and is very pleased to strengthen the relationship by becoming an official cooperation partner. We hope for a continuously mutual beneficial partnership!
