500 exhibitors for Adihex
Abu Dhabi, September 4, 2010
More than 500 exhibitors from over 30 countries active in hunting, safari, weaponry, falconry, equestrian and outdoor sporting equipment and technologies will take part in an upcoming hunting and equestrian show in Abu Dhabi.
The eighth edition of the Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition (Adihex) will take place from September 22 to 25 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
“Adihex 2010 promises to be an exciting episode in the history of this unique initiative pioneered by Abu Dhabi,” says Abdullah Al Qubaisi, event director of Adihex and director of communication department at Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage (Adach).
“Continuing the tremendous success achieved in every edition of the event, Adihex 2010 will be even bigger and better. Due to soaring demand from global brands that are keen to participate in the event, we have expanded the exhibition space to occupy a total of eight halls at Adnec.”
“We are expecting over 100,000 visitors across all age groups and nationalities to visit the exhibition and witness the various elements that are integral to the UAE’s deep rooted traditions while examining the latest innovation in hunting, weaponry, falconry and equestrian technologies,” Al Qubaisi added.
Preservation of tradition and cultural heritage has been at the core of the event since Adihex made its debut on the world stage in 2003 as a unique event that combines conventional Middle Eastern customs with modern equipments and know-how, a statement said.
Sustaining this theme, this year’s centrepiece attractions include a high-profile camel auction, an Arabian Saluki beauty competition, Nabaty poetry competition in addition to painting and photography competition. – TradeArabia News Service
