PITTSBURGH, Nov. 18, 2010 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Fireworks Companies from Six Countries to Help Celebrate Sultanate of Oman's 40th National Day

Zambelli Fireworks, one of the most recognized names in fireworks by audiences around the world, has proven this distinction again after being selected to participate in an international fireworks competition, the Oman World Fireworks Championship 2010. The competition is celebrating the 40th National Day of the Sultanate of Oman and will take place from December 6-18.

"We are extremely proud to be a part of this competition celebrating the Sultanate of Oman's 40th National Day, and excited to add this experience to our rich and varied history," said George R. Zambelli, Jr. MD, Zambelli Chairman. "To be one of six companies chosen from such a large selection from around the world and to be representing the United States at such a tremendous celebration is an immense honor."

To be considered for the competition, Zambelli was selected from a field of 50 U.S. and international fireworks companies. Through exhaustive evaluation, the list of potential competitors was reduced to the final six fireworks companies. The competitors are from France, Italy, Australia, United Kingdom, China and the United States.

By being selected, Zambelli's experience and capabilities are being recognized for international excellence. Creative Director and Choreographer Patrick Brault will lead the team during the competition. His experience includes exhibitions and international fireworks competitions in more than fifteen countries and the production of the pyrotechnics and special effects for two Olympics including the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

"The planning has already begun. A project like this requires hundreds of hours of preparation before we arrive in Oman," said Mr. Brault. "It will be a team effort at Zambelli to bring our best to this competition."

"We'd like to send our greetings to His Majesty Sultan Qaboos, and wish him and the Oman people the greatest success on their 40th National Day," said George R. Zambelli, Jr. "We look forward to the Oman World Fireworks Championship 2010."
