Oman World Fireworks Championship 2010
The Oman World Fireworks Championship 2010 was one of the largest and most spectacular fireworks competitions in the world. The Championship formed part of the 40th National Day Celebrations of the Sultanate of Oman, becoming the largest fireworks event ever held in the Middle East.
Coming from Europe, Asia, Australasia and the Americas, six of the world's very best pyrotechnic production companies put their skills, artistry and technological know-how to the test, as they battled it out for the coveted Champion's Trophy. Zambelli Fireworks Internationale represented United States; Société Lacroix-Ruggieri represented France; Panzera represented Italy; Howard & Sons represented Australia; Merlin Fireworks represented United Kingdom; Vulcan represented China.
The competition was held at Al Qurum Natural Park, located in the heart of Oman's capital city, Muscat. Each individual display was carefully choreographed to music. Each display was broadcast live over radio, and featured on local and national television stations.
The Event was organised by the High Committee for National Day (Oman), Official Oman World Fireworks Championship Organising Committee, Al Taseheel Al Wataniya and The World Fireworks Championship Limited from the UK.
