Breakbulk Middle East Moves to Dubai for 2019

Breakbulk Middle East, the region’s leading event for project cargo specialists, will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre, 11-12 February, 2019, following its first three years of success in Abu Dhabi.

The move comes based on feedback from exhibitors at the event held earlier this year, where attendance grew 36 percent compared with the previous edition of Breakbulk Middle East. Nearly 2000 project cargo professionals turned out to network for new business and gain insight into the changing market for megaprojects and related issues. Top 10 countries in order of representation were UAE, Saudi Arabia, India, Oman, Norway, Germany, United States, Turkey and China, reflecting worldwide interest in project development within the GCC.

With twice as many attendees from Dubai as Abu Dhabi, and an additional 51 countries represented at the event, the decision was made to move to the Dubai World Trade Centre with its ease of access for internationals and higher density of leading industrial manufacturers, engineering and construction companies, oil & gas conglomerates and other decision makers involved in projects.

“Our primary objective is to provide an event that offers the best business networking opportunities for Breakbulk Middle East exhibitors,” Ben Blamire, the event’s commercial director, said. “The Dubai World Trade Centre, one of the most prestigious venues in the Middle East, will provide the catalyst for even greater involvement in 2019.”

Alongside the exhibition, Breakbulk Middle East offers a full two-day conference, covering the hot topics project cargo specialists need to know to seize regional opportunities and construct effective project plans. Led by the key players in the region, such as Fluor, Petrofac, Agility and SNC-Lavalin, the conference also offers face-to-face opportunities to discuss these topics in greater depth. Focus topics include GCC economic diversification, drilling down to project opportunities, logistics for post-conflict regions and HSE and workforce strategies.
