Hosted Buyer Programme

With the support of Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA), 434 pre-qualified fully hosted F&B buyers from 34 countries attended SIAL Middle East 2014 with the purpose of sourcing new products, meeting with suppliers and developing new business.

In 2014 hosted buyers and exhibitors benefitted from an all new online meeting system, which allowed them to arrange their itinerary in advance of the event. According to our post-event analysis, 81% of the hosted buyers had at least 7 meetings. 3621 meetings were pre-booked before the event even started.

More information on the 2014 Hosted Buyer Programme is available in the post-show report.
