THE OMAN CONVENTION & EXHIBITION CENTRE ATTRACTS OVER 3,400 JOB APPLICATIONS

Muscat, August 6 2015: Following its third and final international recruitment drive for the year 2015, the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC) has received over 3,400 applications – its largest response to date. The aim of the drive was to fill almost 50 employment opportunities in various fields such as events, operations and food and beverage, as the Centre prepares to launch a new and exciting era for Oman’s business events industry.

The response to this third recruitment drive has been impressive, not just in terms of the interest it has generated and the number of applicants it has produced, but also in terms of the quality of the applications we have received,” said Trevor McCartney, the OCEC General Manager.

McCartney added, “While job creation for Omani nationals is a priority for the OCEC, all appointments will be made on individual merit and successful applicants will have the satisfaction of knowing they have earned their position in the face of tough international competition.

Over the next 15 years the OCEC and its surrounding precinct will be responsible for the creation of up to 24,000 direct and indirect jobs, contributing up to OMR240 million to the national economy. It is also expected that the OCEC will spur the creation and growth of Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) with design and print, transportation, food and beverage, event management, security and IT services directed towards Omani businesses.

The employment campaign was promoted in domestic and international media, as well as across several online platforms including OCEC’s social media channels, leading international job-site Naukri and at Sultan Qaboos University, the National Hospitality Institute and the Oman Tourism College. The campaign attracted more than 7,000 views on the OCEC website – omanconvention.com and in excess of 20,000 on Naukri.

CIBTM OPENS WITH THE BIGGEST SHOW TO DATE

CIBTM OPENS WITH THE BIGGEST SHOW TO DATE
398 exhibitors on the show floor
15% increase in Pre-Scheduled Appointments
Hosted Buyers arrive from 18 countries

CIBTM (www.cibtm.com) 2012 opened today confirming its status as the leading event for the meetings, incentives, business travel and events industry in China and Asia. With over 5,000 meetings industry professionals (subject to an independent ABC audit post show) expected to participate over 3 days of the event, a 15% increase in pre-scheduled business appointments between Hosted Buyers and suppliers, 398 exhibitors on the show floor (an increase of 7% on 2011) and an 18% increase in the number of exhibitors from China, and Hosted Buyers arriving from 18 countries (up 36% on 2011), CIBTM is set to be biggest to date.

Jeffrey Xu, CIBTM Project Manager, Reed Travel Exhibitions commented; “We are delighted with the response we have had to CIBTM this year, in particular the increase in Hosted Buyers from China. This year we spent time in the regions building awareness of the MICE industry through a number of road shows and one of the reasons for the 36% increase in Hosted Buyers is a direct result of our work in the 2nd and 3rd tier cities around China.

“We have also doubled the number of corporate and association buyers from Beijing. As one of the key measurements for the success of our show is gauged by the amount of business leads created between buyers and suppliers, and with 8,459 pre-scheduled appointments already confirmed, this is a very positive start to the show” Xu added.

China Meetings Week kicked off yesterday with four bespoke Hosted Buyer tours, tailored to familiarize buyers from around the world with what the city of Beijing and surrounding areas has to offer the meetings and events industry.

Itineraries included excursions to the Temple of Heaven, Lao She Tea House, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, National Museum of China, Beijing National Stadium and 798 Art Zone.

There will be over 19 dedicated education sessions during CIBTM, delivered through strategic partnerships with leading associations including Meetings Professional International (MPI), International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) and the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE).

China Meetings Week is one of the major driving forces behind the growth of the meetings industry throughout China and is set to help the country fully realise its potential to attract large-scale international corporate and association events. This year the Site annual international conference will follow CIBTM in Beijing, another example of the development of the MICE sector in the region.
