Trade Visit to the UAE

May 6, 2017 at 8:00 AM- 5:00 PM

6th – 10th May 2017

Companies from the Sheffield City Region are off to Dubai! The Master Cutler, Richard Edwards has pledged to represent the region during a visit to Dubai in early May 2017, coinciding with Automechanika Offshore Arabia 2017 exhibitions.

Following a joint event of the Regional Manufacturing Forum and International Trade Forum in November, attended by over 80 companies, the Master Cutler welcomed a Director from the Arab-British Chamber to the Cutlers’ Hall to present on the opportunities in the Middle East, in the UAE, highlighting specific opportunities in a variety of sectors for UK companies.

The mission will be multi-sector, and will bring additional opportunities as it coincides with Automechanika and the Hardware & Tools Middle East exhibitions.

Other opportunities in the UAE are emerging from the forthcoming Expo2020. Between October 2020 and April 2021, Dubai will host the next World Expo. Bringing together more than 180 nations and an international audience of 25 million visitors, it will be one of the greatest shows on Earth.

In preparation for the event, Procurement notices are being published and refreshed on an ongoing basis and will provide opportunities for UK companies.

To find out more and/or register your interest in the trade visit please contact Renate Halton at the International Trade Forum on [email protected]. Grants may be available in the region for eligible companies.
