Expo Centre Sharjah to organise and host 11 exhibitions in H2, 2017

SHARJAH — Expo Centre Sharjah has announced that it will organise and host 11 economic, cultural, and commercial exhibitions in the second half of 2017.

The first event on the agenda kicks off on October 3rd, and the last event ends on December 16th. In the first half of 2017, the Centre hosted 9 various events.

Saif Mohammed Al-Midfa, CEO of Expo Centre Sharjah, said that the Centre has realised its objectives for the first half of 2017, as its events attracted more than 300,000 visitors from the UAE and abroad. These figures represent about 2 percent increase in the number of visitors compared to the same period last year.

He pointed out that most exhibitions which will be organised or hosted have grown in terms of space and the number of exhibitors, including governmental and private bodies and companies. He also emphasised that participation at local and international events has become a priority for many institutions aspiring to introduce their products, programs, and solutions to new markets, or to expand and promote their businesses in the UAE and the region.

Al-Midfa also stressed the importance of the strategic location of the Emirate of Sharjah, which provides companies access to the neighbouring markets. Sharjah is also distinguished for its investment environment and infrastructure that includes advanced policies and regulations. In addition, Expo Centre Sharjah is characterised by its cultural ambience and has always been committed to a sustainable development of its performance and to offering the best services.

These factors, he said, has greatly contributed to establish the Centre as an outstanding and leading destination for local, regional, and international exhibitors, and to the success and achievements of the Centre over a period of 40 years.

The Centre has always received support from the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry and valuable directives from the wise leadership that helped foster the international status of Sharjah in the exhibition industry. This will hopefully attract more investments and business tourism to Sharjah and boost its economy, he added.
