Trade Fairs for Horticultural Products and Fresh Goods in the Middle East
IPM DUBAI and WOP DUBAI Attract Thousands of Visitors
Horticultural Sector Profits from the Coming World Exhibition
Messe Essen GmbH and planetfair Dubai LLC are rating IPM DUBAI and WOP DUBAI in the Dubai World Trade Centre from December 5 to 7, 2017 as successful. The leading trade fairs for horticultural products and fresh goods in the Middle East served over 300 exhibitors as a trading platform and as a way of presenting their products and services. Both events profited, in particular, from the growing need for horticultural products and fresh and high-quality food in the region.
As the most important trade fair for the green economic sector by the Arabian Gulf, IPM DUBAI attracted 4,178 visitors. That corresponds to a growth rate of nearly seven percent. The visitors included, in particular, purchasers from the United Arab Emirates, their neighboring countries and the Far East. They found what they were looking for on the booths of 103 exhibitors from 20 countries which presented their products and services along the entire value added chain in horticulture - including plants, horticultural technology, floristry, garden features, logistics, plant maintenance as well as equipment for horticulture and landscaping.
International Joint Participation Booths from Seven Countries at IPM DUBAI
The international status of IPM DUBAI was underpinned, amongst other aspects, by the official joint participation booths from China, Egypt, Ethiopia, Germany, India, the Netherlands and Sri Lanka. On the German joint booth alone, twelve firms showed their products with the "Made in Germany" seal of quality. The Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture promoted the joint appearance of the German exhibitors. With a view to Expo Dubai 2020, IPM DUBAI offered new chances to all the participants: Large-scale construction projects are in full swing, new hotels are being built and public parks are being created. Thus, there is a rising need for products and services for everything to do with horticulture.
