Deutsche Messe has confirmed its plans to organize CeMAT MIDDLE EAST at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC), underscoring the Hannover-based company’s commitment to consistent expansion in the world’s key growth markets.
The Gulf region is developing into an international hub for logistics, offering outstanding opportunities for the intralogistics sector as a whole. Dubai especially is expanding its market position, but even smaller neighbors like Bahrain and Qatar exhibit considerable potential. The overall logistics market for the Gulf Cooperation Council (consisting of Saudi-Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and Oman) is estimated at an annual 12 billion U.S. dollars.
Dubai has embraced the global spotlight with its unprecedented achievements in various fields like engineering, architecture and ommerce. The economic upswing in the previous years has given a tremendous impulse to the fields of logistics and industry. And it's not only happening in Dubai but also in Abu Dhabi and other GCC countries, making it a truly exciting time to be active in the industry. Deutsche Messe, with its strong history of successful industrial events, seeks to provide the impetus to further boost the level of success in these key areas. The three trade shows have over 10 years of success around the world; combining them within comprehensive single platform is surely something that numerous trade visitors and exhibitors are eagerly looking forward to." Said Angela Schaschen, Managing Director, Deutsche Messe Dubai Branch.
Dubai is the main logistics hub for the markets on the Arabian peninsula as well as for Iran, east Africa and even India. Up to now, Dubai Logistics City represents the Middle East’s most ambitious logistics project, with annual air cargo capacity of 12 million tons on an area measuring 25 square kilometers. The main seaport in the United Arab Emirates is Jebel Ali in Dubai, the world’s ninth largest container port, currently being expanded at a cost of 1.3 billion dollars to include 82 berths with 125 quay cranes with an annual transshipment capacity of 21.8 million containers. The scheduled completion date is 2020.
The display sectors at CeMAT MIDDLE EAST comprise all aspects of intralogistics, including forklifts and other industrial trucks, materials
handling accessories, rack systems, warehouse systems, packaging, loading equipment, cranes, auto-ID systems and software.
