International exhibitors who fly into Dubai from countries across the world often face unique problems. As one of the exhibition companies in Dubai, we understand the hurdles they may face while exhibiting in a destination in the Middle East. Exhibition companies in Dubai are always available to help these exhibitors to participate in the many large exhibitions that take place here without any complications that may arise in a foreign market.
As one of the foremost exhibition companies in Dubai, we reveal in this blog, how exhibition companies in Dubai can help international exhibitors have a painless experience while exhibiting in the Middle East.
Plan for your exhibition well in advance:
It is always advisable that you plan to participate in an exhibition in the Middle East long before the start of the show, this is especially true for first time exhibitors. You will have to plan for travel, hotel bookings etc., in this case if you tie up with one of the local exhibition companies in Dubai, they will guide you so that all your preparations are complete in time and you can concentrate on building up business in the Middle East.
Do some research beforehand:
Do a thorough research about the venue and also possible local exhibition companies in Dubai who can help you immensely in setting up your exhibition stand. Sourcing locally will help you save a lot on shipping costs, also, a local source will help you tackle any issues that you may face in an unknown city.
Visit the exhibition venue before the show:
We always advise foreign exhibitors to visit the venue of the exhibition well before the installation of their exhibition stands. This way they can get acclimatized to the layouts of the exhibition center as well as get to know the exhibition city in advance. This will help them later during the actual process of exhibiting.
Get to know the local customs and laws:
Local customs and sensibilities in the Middle East can be quite different from other regions of the world. If you have one of the exhibition companies in Dubai as your local partner, they will guide you about these. Or else, getting to know about the local laws and customs will come in handy when you arrive to participate in an exhibition.
Learn about the local transportation network:
Many exhibition venues can be quite far off from the hotels, so you may have to commute some distance every day before and during the exhibition. If you have one of the exhibition companies in Dubai as your fulfillment partner, they will help you get the best, most efficient and value for money transport option. On the other hand, if you are planning to exhibit independently, then know what means of transportation will be most efficient for you to use, you can look at several options such as metro, buses or cabs, if you have the money you can also hire chauffer driven cars. Transportation in the Middle East is comparatively cheaper than Europe or the USA.
As you can see, exhibiting in the Middle East is not as difficult as you may think, especially if you plan ahead and take into account all the tasks that need to be done. If you involve a local partner, your task will be much easier and you will be able to exhibit without facing any hassles or unforeseen hurdles.
