Find out what previous exhibitors thought of their time at SIAL Middle East


“This is the 7th consecutive year we are exhibiting here, we have EMKE Distribution that represents a lot of major brands. We see this platform as one of the major platform and event for selling our products and we are getting a lot of enquiries for our products from EMKE distribution at SIAL.”
Shamim Sainulabdeen, Lulu Group International, United Arab Emirates

“Visitors coming to our stand usually perfectly knew what they were interested in. Business meetings at the stand were short and efficient. The matchmaking session played an important role in market recognition and making first business contacts.”
Małgorzata Leszczynska, National Poultry Council Chamber of Commerce, Poland

“We are new to the market in Dubai. We are locally roasted, brewed, bottled and very proud to be a local business in Dubai and even more so to be at an amazing exhibition like SIAL and be able to meet and greet everyone coming to the show”
Colin Phillips, Colsbrew, United Arab Emirates

“This is Moroccan pavilion’s 4th consecutive participation and we have 25 exhibitors this year. We had many B2B meetings and we have seen a very big interest for our local products. We also met many contacts and people who want to import our products to the Middle East.”
Jihane Barik, Agence Pour Le Development Agricole, Morocco

“For me personally, SIAL Middle East is the biggest filter in the region for quality leads. In three days we generated 150 quality leads, which will be an estimated US$ 100,000 in after-sales business.”
Sascha Geib, Director UAE & Corporate Chef, VITO, Germany

“What has been very unique about SIAL Middle East is the chance that we have had an organised visit from some of the top chefs from around the world to talk one to one. The most important thing is that we have got positive feedback from those executive chefs that you don’t get in other exhibitions & trade shows in the Middle East”
Shavkat Mamadjonov, General Director, Admiral World General Trading LLC, UAE

“Although there are other shows in the country around the region, this is probably the one that has more quality leads and quality buyers coming to the show.”
Antonio Galati, Director of Business Development, La Panzanella, USA

“It is our first time on SIAL Middle East and we are very happy with it and astonished by the results. Only on the first day we had more contacts than in any other fair in Europe for four days.”
Beatriz Caseiro, Export Manager, Donna Caetana Portugal
