Starting on Sunday 9th November at Dubai World Trade Centre ( DWTC ) – the region’s leading conference and exhibition venue and organiser – will embark on a compelling three-day programme of sector-specific exhibitions, ministerial summits and market-shaping conferences covering every sector of the global food industry.

The holistic portfolio of food industry events – spread over 79,000 square metres of DWTC exhibition space – includes the inaugural edition of Gulfood Manufacturing, the only dedicated food processing trade event in the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia’s (MEASA). Conceived to capitalise on and drive inward investment in the region’s flourishing food manufacturing, processing, packaging and ingredients sectors, the blockbuster Gulfood Manufacturing stands to be DWTC ‘s biggest-ever trade show launch. The event runs November 9-11.

Featuring more than 1,100 international machinery, equipment, product and service suppliers from 52 countries, as well as 24 official country pavilions, Gulfood Manufacturing will feature three segment-specific sectors: Food Logistics Middle East, ProPack Middle East and Ingredients Middle East.

The show will also roll-out the global food industry’s largest-ever Hosted Buyer Programme, a mammoth initiative designed to highlight the region’s rapidly expanding F&B manufacturing and production infrastructure to influential buyers from countries including Saudi Arabia, Kenya, Egypt, Turkey, South Africa, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Libya, Iran and Nigeria amongst others.

Gulfood Manufacturing will also host the two-day Food & Beverage Industrial Investment Summit – a strategic investment event bringing together overseas investors and multinational corporations to explore economic, market and manufacturing opportunities across MEASA, the show’s catchment footprint. The Summit aims to give attendees and delegates a better understanding of the financial, legal, logistics, cold chain and technology benefits of locating or expanding existing operations in the region.
