Commercial vehicles show opens in Dubai
Logistics experts have converged in Dubai for the inaugural Middle East International Commercial Vehicle Show.
Transport and logistics experts have converged in Dubai for the inaugural Middle East International Commercial Vehicle Show, where the ‘heavies’ of the automotive world occupy all 20,000 square metres available at the Dubai Autodrome.
“With Dubai undergoing such phenomenal expansion, the demand for commercial vehicles has never been greater,” said Kavita Dabrai, project manager of organisers Zenith Events. “The time was right for such an event and this is underlined by the fantastic response from exhibitors – and from users who want to see the latest models from around the world.”
More than 60 exhibitors are taking part – representing the world’s leading manufacturers and their Middle East agents and distributors.
The show occupies the equivalent of four football pitches, where a vast array of vehicles are on display from Belhasa Motors, Toyota, Renault, Galadari, Al Ghanim, Tata, Shac, Naffco, Al Futtaim, Mammut, Bison, Iran Khodro, Gulfcoen, Naffco, Voith Turbo, Caterpillar, Al Dobowi, Wah Fai, Juratek, Al Ghandi, Gulf Oil, Al Nabooda, Eicher, and many more.
“Obviously, Dubai and UAE are particularly well represented in view of the intense demand for commercial vehicles, but we have also had visitor registrations from across the Gulf and the wider Middle East, as well as the Indian subcontinent and CIS countries,” said Dabrai.
“This is the first opportunity our region has had to see the best the world has to offer in specialised commercial vehicles for every purpose – all gathered on one convenient site in a strategically-located and accessible destination. This is a new focal point for suppliers and users to experience the best in current technology and provides a meeting place to share needs and solutions," she added.
