Executive Chairman’s Message
In line with the constant evolution in the beverage industry, we are pleased to host the Tenth edition of the Dubai Drink Technology Expo – DDTE.
The UAE is promoting investment in numerous industry sectors, including beverage and food processing and manufacturing as part of their strategies to develop new capabilities locally. In addition, the economy of the UAE is one of the strongest. Moreover, the avenues that the government provides for manufacturing units and business owners are enormous, therefore, businessmen and business owners consider DDTE as their gateway to the MENA beverage Markets.
Designed to promote the latest beverage products and services, processes, packaging systems and light machinery, DDTE continues to bring together key operators & decision makers of the Middle East beverage plants and create a perfect platform for them to meet with suppliers from the region and abroad.
Every year, DDTE serves as a valuable opportunity for companies to engage in successful partnerships with international counterparts. In the last edition more than 110 companies and brands from 27 countries exhibited at the DDTE2017, hoping to expand their reach and enter the Middle East, Africa, Mediterranean and Asian Markets. The percentage of the exhibition size had increased by 10% compared to last year.
The exhibition which occupies more than 2,200 sqm promises lucrative opportunities for international exhibitors coming from Europe, USA and Asia. In addition, it is an opportunity to enter the GCC and the Middle East markets for investment purposes.
I accord a warm welcome to all and wish you will derive great benefits out of your three day participation.
Welcome to Dubai, Welcome to DDTE 2018!
