Soccerex, the global football marketing event that was to be held in Dubai on October 22-23, has been postponed. The event will, however, go ahead next year on April 29-30 at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

The decision to move the event was made following the September 11 attacks on the USA. The UAE Department of Tourism and Commerce, Emirates Airlines, Jumeirah International and the UAE Football Association remain committed to the event.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this change but hope all will agree that the event deserves to be showcased in the spectacular destination of Dubai away from the shadows of anxiety surrounding the world at present," said Duncan Revie, chief executive officer of Soccerex. "We look forward to seeing you in the beautiful sunshine of Dubai in April."
