Abu Dhabi to get four new trade shows

Abu Dhabi’s meetings and exhibitions sector is continuing its rapid expansion with four major new trade shows added to the portfolio of events taking place in the capital.

Nexus Global Events has contracted more than 12,000 square metres of exhibition space at Abu Dhabi's National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), and has earmarked four B2B trade shows up to May 2010. 

Two industry-specific exhibitions, Middle East Broadcast Solutions (MEBS) and Middle East Television (METV), are slated to run concurrently over three days from November 17, while Sports Arabia and Franchise Arabia will be launched in 2010.

“The four new shows are expected to attract over 20,000 visitors to Abu Dhabi. “More than 8,000 international visitors are expected into the capital over the three days of the double-billing MEBS and METV in November alone, further supporting Abu Dhabi's drive to develop meetings and allied tourism industries,” said Neil Manwaring, managing director, Nexus Global Events. 

MEBS and METV will both be annual events. Franchise Arabia was initially scheduled for this October but has been moved to the 2010 spring calendar to bypass any business downturn and leverage the new momentum expected by the global franchise industry.
