The Dubai Airport Freezone Authority will attend the Gulfood Exhibition 2017, where they will emphasize their up-to-date industry knowledge
In effort to meet the current and emerging needs of the regional and global food and beverage (F&B) sectors, the Dubai Airport Freezone Authority (DAFZA) has announced its participation at Gulfood Exhibition 2017. Taking place from February 26 to March 2 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, the trade exhibition will provide DAFZA with a global platform to showcase its competitive advantages and business-friendly environment suited for leading international F&B companies.
The 22nd edition of the renowned food and hospitality event will not only highlight the region’s latest services, facilities, sophisticated infrastructure, investment solutions, and important business incubation processes but will enable DAFZA to shed light on its key contributions to the UAE’s economic diversification policy.
Furthermore, the business will discuss the expansion and development of Light Industrial Units (LIUs) designed to ensure an optimal logistical platform for regional, international and multinational companies seeking to capitalise on the expanding global food industry, with Dubai undertaking efforts to transform itself into a global capital of the Islamic economy by 2021.
Jamal Bin Marghoob, Director for Marketing and Corporate Communication, DAFZA, said: “It is important for us at DAFZA to be part of the forum to build direct communication channels with regional and international decision makers, entrepreneurs, and investors who are eager to take advantage of the expanding food market.”
Amongst DAFZA’s expansion plans are DAFZA Square, which received the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold rating, and the Light Industrial Units project, which aims to add 33 LIUs to address the increasing world demand for office spaces, storage and logistical facilities.
