"The Bahrain Conventions and Exhibition Bureau (BCEB) is gearing itself up to host three world-class events next month. The combined events - Water Middle East 2004, Power-Gen Middle East 2004 and Iraq Reconstruction 2004 - will be held under the patronage of Prime Minister Shaikh Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa. More than 350 international exhibitors will take part in the events, scheduled for September 13 to 15, at the Bahrain International Exhibition Centre." As for another one of Iraq's neighbors, "[a]t least 350 Iraqi companies have joined a new business centre to be set up in Dubai soon... The centre is being launched under an initiative by General Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and UAE Defence Minister, to help the Iraqis still struggling with the reconstruction of their war-torn country." Meanwhile, the Destination Baghdad expo is on line to take place in December, with Motorola, Halliburton and CH2M Hill among those participating in the event.
