What our delegates said about MERTC

Hailed as the ERTC of the Middle East, MERTC cemented itself as a premier meeting place for refining and petrochemical stakeholders of the region.

The Inaugural MERTC witnessed 248 industry stakeholders from 71 companies, and 20 countries gathering at the Ritz Carlton Bahrain to enjoy 17 hours of content, 5 dedicated technical streams, and 8 hours of networking.

Here is what our delegates said about the inaugural event in January 2017:

MERTC is a wonderful tool for sharing successes, lesson learned and experiences. It is also a major networking tool.

VP Manufacturing, Satorp

Based on my personal observation and feedback from others, the MERTC was extraordinary in terms of material, speakers and technology utilization.

Planning and Programming, Saudi Aramco

MERTC brought together people from all levels of the refining companies; Directors, Technologists, Process Engineers, etc. These are the people I want to meet and speak with.

Director of Alliances, Crystaphase

Well run, well pitched conference. Not a supplier ‘free for all’ as some can be. Already signed up for next year.

Area Manager-Bahrain, Aggreko

I was very delighted to see the event successful and also glad to be part of it. Congratulations and I wish you all the best in the coming events.


It was a pleasure to be part of this conference. I believe it was a success and a bit different from other conferences that I attended. Well done and hope to see you next year.


The event was a great success both in terms of content and networking.
