The most important B2B trade fairs for horticulture and fresh produce in the Gulf region are booming.
More exhibitors, more exhibition space and more visitors - IPM DUBAI and WOP DUBAI were on top form in 2015. In October, more than 300 exhibitors came into contact with top-class customers from the Middle East and Asia at the two most important B2B trade fairs for horticulture and fresh produce in the Gulf region. The unanimous conclusion was that it provided "an excellent opportunity to come together and do business."
2015 also saw both B2B trade fairs continuing their growth trajectory - a great success, marking the ten year anniversary of IPM DUBAI. "The ever-increasing levels of interest show how attractive the location of Dubai is to the horticultural industry", summarised Oliver P. Kuhrt, Managing Director of Messe Essen, the event organiser. For us, it confirms the effectiveness of our strategy, which is to establish IPM ESSEN as a world-leading trade fair through affiliated events in important growth markets; thereby opening up new sales opportunities for our exhibitors."

IPM DUBAI with New Records: Over 100 Exhibitors at the Most Important Plant Show in the Arab Area
Supporting Programme Supplies Lucrative Information About the Target Region
The United Arab Emirates are becoming ever more attractive for international horticulture: The tenth IPM DUBAI from October 5 to 7, 2015 will register new records. Over 100 companies will present their products and services at the most important plant show in the Arab area - a plus of 20 percent in comparison with the preceding event. Exhibitors from all over Europe, South America, Africa and Asia will use this sectoral platform for gaining entry to a market for which an annual growth rate of 20 percent is predicted in the run-up to Expo 2020.
As the market leader, IPM DUBAI will also offer exhibitors and visitors a tailor-made programme with valuable information about Arab horticulture. Already on the day before the show, a guided tour will permit insights into the daily routine of production in the plant sector in Dubai. Participation will be free of charge for exhibitors and visitors; the www.ipm-dubai.net website provides information about the programme.
Informative Supporting Programme with International Experts
On all the days of the show, sectoral experts active in the Gulf region will pass on their knowledge at first hand. At the start on October 5, attention will focus on garden and landscaping. In cooperation with Interessenvertretung der deutschen Industrie für den Gartenbau (INDEGA - "Representation of interests of the German horticulture industry"), the second day of the show (October 6) will concentrate on plant production and technology. All the seminars will take place in Hall 3 of the Dubai World Trade Center. The "Middle East Floral Designer of the Year 2015" will be honoured on the third day of the show (October 7). Florists from the United Arab Emirates will be called upon to create a gala table. Not only a specialist jury but also the visitors to IPM DUBAI 2015 will make the decision about the winner.
Favourable Economic Situation for the Tenth Edition of the Most Important Plant Show in the Gulf Region
From October 5 to 7, 2015, IPM DUBAI will take place in the Dubai World Trade Center for the tenth time. The economic prerequisites for the anniversary edition of the most important plant show in the Arab area could not be better: Experts are confirming an annual increase of 20 percent for the green market in the United Arab Emirates. World of Perishables (WOP), the show for temperature-sensitive produce, will once more supplement the range on offer.
Already four months before IPM DUBAI, companies from Germany, China, Egypt, Ecuador, Ireland, France, Kenya, Korea, Spain, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates confirmed to take part in the show. They will present their innovations from the sections entitled Plants, Technology, Floristry, Garden Features, Logistics, Plant Maintenance as well as Garden and Landscaping. Last year, the trade show was able to clearly consolidate its position as the most important horticultural show in the region. The signs are indicating growth for the coming IPM DUBAI, too: The high demand for flowers and plants in the Gulf states has made the United Arab Emirates the trading centre of the plant market there. An annual growth rate of nine percent is predicted for the cut flower market alone.
The interest from the official side is great, too. Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman of Dubai Airports, has again agreed to become the patron of IPM DUBAI 2015.
World of Perishables - WOP DUBAI - International Perishables Expo Middle East, will again take placeparallel to IPM DUBAI. At the only trade show for fruit and vegetables in the entire
Middle East, attention will focus on produce safety, technical equipment as well as the transport, trading and service for temperature-sensitive produce. Both shows will complement each other in an optimum way and will offer the visitors a high value added.
