GulFood 2018 Hosts the 2nd Edition of the INC Pavilion in Dubai

GulFood 2018 Hosts the 2nd Edition of the INC Pavilion in Dubai


19 co-exhibitors from 11 countries joined the Pavilion that has provided them with a matchless service featured by premium position and high-traffic of visitors. As a result of the commercial activity deployed by INC staff, thousands of delegates have visited the INC Pavilion and more than 30 new companies have applied for membership.

Dubai just hosted the 23rd edition of GulFood, the world’s largest annual food and hospitality show. The event took place from February 18 to 22, 2018 and INC participated with its Nuts and Dried Fruits Pavilion. It was in fact the second time for the INC Pavilion to be featured in the Middle East. Launched as a biennial trade fair in 1987, GulFood has grown dramatically to reach more than 120 countries annually, embracing 5,000 local, regional and international exhibitors to showcase those food trends and innovations shaping the future worldwide. Around 95,000 visitors passed through the eight food sectors including, among others, pulses, grains and cereals, beverages, dairy and world food. Among all of them, nuts and dried fruits were also represented thank to the INC Pavilion. Globally, the Pavilion included the representation of 11 different nationalities (USA, Germany, UK, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Turkey, Tunisia, Chile, China and Iran) among its co-exhibitors. Hence several languages, cultures and religions coexisted at the site for 5 days, reinforcing the global umbrella represented by INC for the entire nut and dried fruit industry across the globe.

The space, of 180 m2, hosted 19 co-exhibitors’ booths of 6 m2 each, following the design already displayed in the past edition. Once again, the facility served its main purpose of becoming a continuous trading hub for the nut and dried fruit business, with hundreds of commercial and also informal meetings and contacts being held both at the co-exhibitors’ booths and at the hospitality area. The Pavilion therefore turned the ZA’ABEEL Hall 2 of GulFood 2018 into a vivid and lively place, with a non-stop flow of visitors willing to do business and network with top industry leaders. Activity and contacts were remarkably numerous during the Welcome Cocktail held on February 18. The event drew a great number of attendees and this new INC concept served to promote meetings in a different and more relaxed atmosphere. Find a full gallery of pictures of the INC Pavilion at GulFood in our Flickr album or watch the video.
