About GESALO

The German–Saudi Arabian Liaison Office for Economic Affairs (GESALO) has been the official representative of German Industry and Commerce for Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Yemen since 1978. Our vision and mission is strengthening business ties between Germany and our host countries, and to contribute to mutually beneficial economic relations. With our events and gatherings, our online and offline publications we offer you an excellent choice of advertisement opportunities.

 

The Facts

GESALO is well connected to enterprises and entrepreneurs from both Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Yemen and Germany. Our head office in Riyadh stands ready to serve you with a staff of 15 employees. Our German Desk in the Asharqia Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Dammam is close to the most important industrial center of Saudi Arabia as well as to Bahrain.

GESALO is well connected to the Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, too. Our joint business-to-business events has been supporting businesses between German and Saudi Arabian and Bahraini companies for nearly forty years now.

Being part of the German Chamber Network with its 130 locations in 90 countries around the world, and being closely connected to the 79 domestic German Chambers of Industry and Commerce and their umbrella organization, the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry, GESALO is your link to more than 3.6 Mio. German companies.

Our network of ‘leads’ consists of more than 25,000 business representatives in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Yemen and Germany.

 

The Events

German Breakfast and Catalogue Show

Our German Breakfast and Catalogue Shows are a unique offer for German companies to present their products and services to the Saudi and Bahraini markets. The event series reaches out to the major Saudi Arabian and Bahraini industrial and commercial centres – from Jeddah to Manama.

The German Breakfast is also a networking opportunity for the local business community. Typically the opening ceremony is attended by high-level dignitaries from the German Embassy and the local Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Each of the five-per-year events is attended by 80 to 100 local businessmen and decision makers, plus representatives from the press. Therefore, the German Breakfast and Catalogue Shows are an excellent opportunity for addressing a significant number of like-minded business people.

 

The Publications

The Magazine

Our German-Saudi Business Magazine (GSBM) is published four times per year with 2,000 hard copies. It is the showcase of the German-Saudi and German-Bahraini business cooperation. GSBM’s main language is English, since 2016 with a complementary Arabic section.

Each edition focuses on an important area of German-Saudi and German-Bahraini business cooperation. Past magazines covered topics like infrastructure, agriculture, petrochemicals, and education.

The GSBM is displayed in:

  • Hand-picked hotels in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain,
  • Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain,
  •  The Embassies of the Federal Republic of Germany in Riyadh and Manama,
  • The offices of VFS Tasheel in Germany,
  • The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Bielefeld, hosting a German-wide ‘Saudi Arabia Desk’.

A personal hard copy is shared with more than 200 decision makers in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, including the Chairmen and CEOs of the Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

A soft copy is sent via E-Mail to 8,000 business contacts in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain as well as to all 79 German Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

The GSBM is further distributed at all our events in Germany, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

 

The Newsletter

The GESALO newsletter is published on a monthly basis, informing about recent economic developments, legislative changes, new tenders in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Yemen. Furthermore, the newsletter highlights recent and upcoming activities and events.

The newsletter is sent as a soft copy to 8,000 business ‘leads’ in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain as well as to all 79 German Chambers of Commerce and Industry. A hard copy of our newsletter is distributed at all our events in Germany, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

Instead of regular advertisements, our newsletter gives you the opportunity to share a one-page or half-page illustrated profile of your company with our network.

 

The Publications

Our six publications cover all questions regarding market entry in Saudi Arabia. Our Business & Legal Guide, our Labour and Employment Law Guide as well as our Guides on public procurement and industrial property protection are unique as there are no other German language publications covering these topics in-depth.

For our English language clients, we publish two directories covering the German companies in Saudi Arabia and their representatives, as well as a comprehensive directory of Saudi Arabian importing companies.

Our publications are printed in 1,000 hard copies each and are distributed in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain as well as in Germany and all German-speaking countries.
