Rebuilding Iraq Expo organizers, New Fields Exhibitions, has revealed plans for further events in the months ahead. Following next month’s event in Arbil, Iraq, the company will hold conferences in Washington and London this June. The 5th Rebuilding Iraq Conference, scheduled for June 9-10 in Washington DC will build on the momentum created by the Arbil Expo and the successful track record of New Fields’ previous Washington conferences. At the company’s last Washington conference, on February 25-26, over 500 attendees packed the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington to hear presentations from Nasreen Barwari, the Iraqi Minister of Public Works, Raad al Haris, senior advisor to the Ministry of Electricity and Nijyar Shemdin, official representative to the US from the government of Iraqi Kurdistan. Attendees networked with decision-makers from the US Army Corps of Engineers, Halliburton KBR, Washington Group International and officials from the Coalition Provisional Authority, the Iraq Reconstruction Task Force and the Export-Import Bank of the US. On June 23-24, New Fields will hold the 6th Rebuilding Iraq Conference in London, its first event in the United Kingdom. Representatives of prime contractors, American contracting authorities and British government officials will address and network with British business leaders. “The next three months will be a busy time for New Fields, but they will also be a historic time for the people of Iraq,” said Samir Farajallah, president & CEO of New Fields. “As Iraq prepares to regain its sovereignty on July 1, the potential economic opportunities for its people are the greatest in decades. The next few months will be a pivotal period that will determine the future of the Iraqi people. New Fields is proud to be a part of building the bridges between Iraq and the United States that will lead to a free, prosperous Iraq in the years ahead,” he added.
