Aussies wave flag at UAE trade show


Leading US, European and Australian companies will showcase their products at the Middle East Manufacturing Exhibition (MEMEX) later this month.

Major suppliers of hand tools and cutting edge manufacturing technology will descend on the UAE capital later this month, eager to acquire a share of the reported $13.7 billion of foreign direct investment (FDI) secured last year, most of which is earmarked to expand the UAE's manufacturing base.

MEMEX, to be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from November 28-30, focuses on technology, machinery, tools, and solutions for the industrial and associated industries.

The show has attracted top brands from the US, UK, Germany, Italy, Holland and Australia.

"The UAE is now an important emerging market for manufacturing technology. Many of our participants have already invested in facilities here to support their growing customer portfolios, says Mansoor Ahmad, CEO of Dynamic Automation. The UAE is well on its way to becoming a first class centre for manufacturing."

Organiser's IIR Middle East are expecting 120 exhibiting companies at MEMEX, representing 400 brands from 16 countries. Over 3000 decision makers from more than 25 countries have already registered to attend, primarily from across the Middle East and North Africa.

The Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (DED) is the leading partner of the MEMEX 2010 show.
