Paperworld Middle East and Gifts & Lifestyle Middle East attract 5,182 visitors from 106 countries presenting a whole new world of opportunities.
The dual trade platform for stationery, paper, office supplies, and children’s toys and games; along with gifts, accents, and lifestyle products, concluded its successful run in Dubai, having attracted 5,182 visitors from 106 countries.
Together, the two exhibitions, Paperworld Middle East, in its 10th edition, and the debut of Gifts & Lifestyle Middle East, featured 200 exhibitors from 37 countries at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 14-16 December 2021.
The events also hosted the brand new Hub Forum, a two-day conference uniting industry experts, thought leaders, analysts in e-commerce, digital and sustainable trends to discuss and debate the way forward for these fast-evolving industries in a post-pandemic world.
“We are delighted with the industry response to both Paperworld Middle East and Gifts & Lifestyle Middle East; after what has been very testing times over the last 20 or so months, it’s a great privilege to reunite our stakeholders and offer countless new business and networking opportunities,” commented Syed Ali Akbar, Show Director for Gifts & Lifestyle Middle East and Paperworld Middle East.
“This year we stepped up our efforts to engage with exhibitors and encourage them to showcase their most vibrant offerings, and I think that really showed on the exhibition floor.
“So whether it was baby clothes and children’s lifestyle products, stationery, school bags, writing instruments and creative supplies, or premium gifts and leather accessories, there was plenty on offer to entice regional trade buyers to think outside their traditional product portfolios and expand into new areas.”
“The introduction of the Hub Forum similarly created a point of difference for delegates eager to expand their knowledge on how to navigate the current business environment,” added Akbar.
Organised by Messe Frankfurt Middle East, Paperworld Middle East 2021 featured regular long-time exhibitors also as part for the Remanexpo Product Group like Calidad, Polytone, PS Printservice GmbH and IPS.
Paperworld Middle East and Gifts & Lifestyle Middle East will both next take place from 15-17 November 2022 at Dubai World Trade Centre.
