We’re delighted that you will be exhibiting with us at Breakbulk Middle East from 12th to 13 th February 2024 at Dubai World Trade Centre in Dubai, UAE.

We understand it takes a lot to co-ordinate your stand and for this reason we have created an 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 important deadlines listed on page 5 and official show partner and supplier contacts 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.
