under the patronage of the custodian of the two holly mosques King Salman Bin Abtulaziz Al Saud.
11 to 13 December 2016, Hilton Hotel, Jeddah, KSA.
The remarkable success of OMAINTEC previous thirteen convened editions (from 2002 to 2015),
gave the organizers, associates and stakeholders the keenness in providing the consistent
platform for international field-experts and organizations to share and exchange their
knowledge with the regional policy and decision makers.
As OMAINTEC is considered the only regional event tackling this vital subject, it opens
the doors to key O&M operators and managers to exchange their expertise and enrich their
knowledge about the new applied techniques to improve the effectiveness of their
maintenance & operations management strategies and work plans.
