The Sultanate of Oman is situated in the Arabian Peninsula at the mouth of the Arabian Gulf. Its strategic location gives it the advantage of being only seven hours away from 50 percent of the world’s population. It is a diverse nation of rich history and culture.
The Country has a coastline of over 1,800 kms and boasts unrivalled natural beauty in the region with the Al Hajar mountain range, Wahiba sands, beautiful natural wadis, long sandy beaches and deep fjords offering breathtaking coral reefs and marine life.
Oman is on a committed trajectory of development and economic diversification. Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Country’s ruler since 1970, has introduced modernisation and economic development through a sustained policy of diversification and creating in-country value. The Sultanate has invested billions in the development of ports, special economic zones and large tourism and hospitality projects to support increasing industrial development, trade and the expanding tourism sector.
Opening in 2016, the new Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre is set to become an iconic landmark for Muscat and the Sultanate of Oman. Surrounded by nature, it overlooks a wadi which is a haven for Oman’s exotic bird life. The Centre is conveniently located only 10 minutes from the new Muscat International Airport.
Situated in its own precinct, this world-class facility is perfectly suited to host international, regional and national conventions, exhibitions and business events. Amongst its features are a tiered auditorium seating 3,200 people and more than 22,000 square metres of column-free exhibition space.
