Welcome to Breakbulk Middle East 2023!

We’re delighted that you will be exhibiting with us at Breakbulk Middle East 2023 from 13th to 14th February 2023 at Dubai World Trade Centre in Dubai, UAE.

Breakbulk Middle East brings industry professionals together from across the supply chain and at the heart of our community are the decision-makers; EPCs, manufacturers, logistics and procurement executives.

We understand it takes a lot to co-ordinate your stand and for this reason that we have created this Exhibitor Manual as a one-stop-guide containing all the vital information you need to exhibit at the show.

Please take time to read through all the information and instructions provided including official contractor contacts on page 5 and important deadlines listed on page 6.

A little time spent now coordinating your participation will save you last minute inconvenience and unnecessary expense. Please keep an eye out for the ordering deadlines as the prices do increase significantly after the deadlines have passed.
