On 31 May, the 24th International Caspian Oil and Gas Exhibition opened its doors to the world. This international exhibition and conference is the largest energy sector event in the Caspian region and is recognized as a good platform for establishing reliable business relationships, negotiating significant contracts and successfully implementing projects. Each year, the exhibition is attended by more than 10,000 local and international professionals. The fact that the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Mr. Ilham Aliyev participates in the opening ceremony of the exhibition testifies to the high status of the event. The AR Ministry of Energy and the SOCAR company both give invaluable support to the “Caspian Oil & Gas” events.
This year SOCAR Polymer once again traditionally occupied its place among the exponents, with 60 square meters of well-decorated space. The key message of our exposition declared that “Dedicated and skilled employees are our greatest strength”. It was the slogan manifested at SOCAR Polymer’s stand. With time and space limits involved, we had been able to present to the public only 11 of our employees. Nevertheless, they symbolized and mirrored the strengths of the entire SOCAR Polymer team. Short but expressly descriptive information blocks about the 11 representatives were displayed in 2 languages on large vertical video panels.
Further, our stand featured a touchscreen display with 10 “before/ after” photos of the PP and HDPE plants’ construction site over a widely stretched time period that encompassed the demolition of the old Soviet plant, site cleaning and subsequent construction phases of our new plants.
A large video wall demonstrated a 3-minute short video about our Project, taking spectators virtually to the plants’ site in Sumgayit by means of drone-shot views of the plants under construction. The video can be viewed at SOCAR Polymer’s youtube channel by following the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L03VzcVLJc&feature=youtu.be
In the morning of the second exhibition day, the traditional annual Caspian Oil & Gas Conference launched its activity to support the exposition with discussions and exchange of views and experience on issues relevant to this sector of industry and global economy.
Over the 4 days of the exhibition, our employees took turns at the stand as company representatives greeting the visitors, responding to inquiries and, thus, enriching with their personal presence the exposition dedicated to our employees.
