The Sfax Chamber of Commerce and Industry organized on Wednesday March 31, 2021, an information day to present the 16th edition of the Mediterranean Building Fair “MEDIBAT” which will be held from October 6 to 9, 2021 in Sfax.
Marking the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the event, the new session promises to be a unique session where the CCIS grants specific privileges to exhibitors and takes care, as it should, of the contents of the various components of the show and of the programs of the international forums as well as the presence of important professional delegations from various countries around the world.
Several companies attended this meeting and the participants expressed their interest in the show and expressed their active participation in this exceptional session.
Les premiers indices de cette session augurent d’une édition exceptionnelle aussi bien au niveau de l’organisation qu’au niveau de la présence étrangère. A un mois et demi de la manifestation, la quasi-totalité des stands ont été, d’ores et déjà, réservés. L’on enregistre, en effet, une participation directe de 10 pays en plus de la Tunisie. Il s’agit de la Chine, la Turquie, l’Italie, l’Algérie, la France, la Libye, les Emirats Arabes Unis, l’Iran, l’Indonésie et la République Tchèque. La Chine, l’Iran et la République Tchèque ont réservé des pavillons entiers, ce qui témoigne de l’intérêt accordé par ces trois Nations au Salon.
S’agissant de l’exposition, il convient d’indiquer qu’un effort colossal est déployé par l’équipe organisatrice du salon pour promouvoir le secteur du matériel et des gros engins pour la construction. Les entrepreneurs et professionnels de ce secteur se réuniront autour d’une table ronde animée par la Fédération Nationale des Entrepreneurs de Bâtiment et de Travaux Publics. Cette manifestation portera sur le thème : « L’internationalisation du métier de l’Entrepreneur du Bâtiment: Situation et perspectives ».
L’on s’attend, également, à ce que la nouvelle édition dépassera la précédente qui, du reste, s’est soldée par un bilan positif : 47000 visiteurs, 350 exposants, 300 rendez vous d’affaires, 35 pays et 21 délégations.
The parallel activities of MEDIBAT 2019 will be marked by the presence of well Known organisations like the CPCCAF. The Permanent Congress of African and Francophone Consular and Commercial Chambers will hold its office in Tunis on the occasion of the Fair. The CPCCAF includes a network of 130 consular chambers from 31 countries. Other important organisations will participate in MEDIBAT 2019. They are the CEDEAO, the Economic Complex of West African Countries and the UEMOA, the Economic and Monetary Union of West Africa.
