The Abu Dhabi Advantage

Access to the region. A modern and safe commercial hub, Abu Dhabi is perfectly positioned for you to meet potential partners from across the Middle East.

Award winning venue. In 2011, ADNEC won awards for the Middle East’s Leading Exhibition Centre, International Venue of the Year, and Best International Venue.

Government support. The Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority will continue to support efforts to host VIP buyers, drive media coverage and grow the event in 2014.

A burgeoning hospitality and tourism industry. The Government has identified tourism as a key priority within its 2030 Development Plan, with tourism-related projects worth US$235 billion planned through to 2018.

Liberalised import rules. In January 2012, the UAE Cabinet decided to further liberalise the trade of essential commodities in a move to end monopoly and arrest soaring food prices. The move includes beverages, dairy products, livestock and edible oils.

Buyers need new products. A young, wealthy and multicultural population is demanding a better variety of products and ingredients.

Khalifa Port. The UAE is already an important regional hub with the third largest amount of re-exports in the world. The opening of Khalifa Port in Abu Dhabi will open up new import and reexport capacity at the only automated port for a 3,000 mile radius.

Diversified economy. The local food processing sector is expanding rapidly with attractive financing and subsidies from Government and now accounts for over 40% of the industrial investment outside of the oil and gas sector in the UAE.

Entry policy. SIAL Middle East is strictly a trade only exhibition. There is no admission for the general public or persons under the age of 18.
