UFI relocates Middle East/Africa regional office

News this week: This week, UFI announced the relocation of its Middle East/Africa (MEA) regional office from Kuwait to its new host venue, Expo Centre Sharjah, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

UFI‘s recent research indicates continued growth in the Middle East exhibition industry which recorded a 14% increase in the number of trade fairs organised and a 21% increase in available exhibition space since 2006 - despite difficult external economic circumstances.

Ibrahim Alkhaldi, UFI’s MEA regional manager, noted, “We thank our previous hosts in Abu Dhabi and Kuwait for their gracious support which enabled UFI to develop much needed programmes and services for the exhibition industry in the region. The work of this UFI office has been much appreciated and we are delighted that our members will benefit from uninterrupted service in the years ahead.”
