Infra Oman – First exhibition in Oman to be BPA audited

Infra Oman 2012 – Oman’s second international exhibition for infrastructure & industrial projects, which was organized by Al Nimr Expo from the 02-04 October, is the First exhibition in Oman to be successfully audited by BPA.

BPA Worldwide is a not-for-profit organization since 1931 with its headquarters in Shelton, CT, USA. BPA has the largest membership of any media-auditing organization in the world, spanning more than 30 countries.
BPA Worldwide confirmed and independently validated attendance, demographically and geographically coverage data for Infra Oman 2012 based on verified registration of trade visitors for the expo.
Mr. Salim Omar Al Hashmi, CEO Al Nimr expo said, “The strong growth of Infra Oman has made it a perfect time to apply for membership with BPA Worldwide. As organizers, it’s our firm commitment and we owe it to our exhibitors to provide them with an audit report which is accurate and transparent to show the number of trade visitors.”
Mr. Melwin D’Cunha, Managing Director Al Nimr expo added, “With a BPA audit, exhibitors can compare events based on authenticated data enabling them to carefully invest their money in the right exhibition. Also, one can prepare logistically – from the right booth size to the right amount of sales materials and demonstrate ROI based on the ratio of leads generated to total visitors.”
“We are pleased that Infra Oman has applied for membership in BPA Worldwide,” said BPA president and CEO Glenn Hansen. “We applaud the event organizer for providing exhibitors and prospects with the solid assurance of an independent attendance audit conducted according to our world-respected, uncompromising standards. With a BPA audit, sponsors and exhibitors can be confident that audience claims are accurate, and that they have the certified data that they need to assess an event’s effectiveness in serving its market.”
Infra Oman in its inaugural edition had more than 120 exhibitors from over 20 countries with more than 3000 visitors. In its following year, Infra Oman had 175 exhibitors from over 25 countries with 3290 visitors. Infra Oman 2013 will be from 30th September to 2nd October 2013.
