9,500 buyers attend Middle East Organic and Natural Expo

DUBAI, November 19, 2018

More than 9,500 buyers who are exclusively focused on natural and organic products are attending the ongoing Middle East Organic and Natural Expo, being held in Dubai, UAE.

The three-day event, being held at the Dubai Convention and Exhibition Centre, will conclude tomorrow (November 20).

The organisers, Global Links Exhibitions, has announced the launch of the regions’ first bulk purchase website exclusively for natural and organic-based products, www.arabianorganics.com.

Dr Thani Bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, Minister of Climate Change and Environment inaugurated the exhibition. He spent considerable time interacting with the exhibitors, said a statement from the organisers.

A total of 13 country pavilions, as well as exhibitors who represent over 55 different countries will provide visitors a huge range of products across organic food and beverage, beauty and wellness, health and nutrition products as well as alternative medicines and therapy.

The newly launched ArabianOrganics online wholesale portal is aimed at helping international and regional suppliers connect with buyers across the Middle East and North Africa. One of the challenges faced by buyers was unavailability of products in the region ready for immediate procurement. 

As a solution, the new portal now offers a complete fulfilment package, including local product certification, online payment, warehousing and last-mile delivery. Essentially it begins at lead generation and ends with delivery at the doorstep.

Shinu Pillai, the event’s director at Global Links Exhibitions and organisers of the expo, said: “We are always looking to provide our exhibitors and the overall organic and natural market with new ways to grow their business.”

“While ArabianOrganics was initially available exclusively for exhibitors at the expo during the last show, the overwhelming response drove us to provide them the facility of Online 2 Offline platform as an ongoing service. It has also now been transformed to include non-exhibitors who are keen to enter the Middle East and African markets,” Pillai added.

The expo this year is expecting much higher footfall not just for business transactions, but is also because it is organising a focused conference on Traditional, Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (TCAM), with professionals who will address topics such as holistic medicine, risks of self-medication, lifestyle management, etc, and a panel discussion on TACM progressing into the future. 

At the event, organisers have included workshops as well as other panel discussions which will highlight sustainability, the future of organic beauty, organic agriculture and food security, etc.

In keeping with the exceptional services, the Middle East Organic and Natural Products Expo 2018 has a large number of VIP buyers who are provided with online pre-scheduled meetings to ensure that their visit is maximised. VIP buyers are assisted by dedicated buyer engagement teams who facilitate meetings with exhibitors of interest, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
