Funding secured for UK catering equipment firms targeting Middle East

GulfHost exhibitors are some of the beneficiaries of the Tradeshow Access Programme funding.

CESA will be running the UK Pavilion at the GulfHost exhibition this September in Dubai and has designed a GulfHost package to simplify the process for British companies wishing to exhibit at the show.

The Association has also secured TAP (Tradeshow Access Programme) funding from the Department for International Trade, meaning that grants of £2,500 are available to support up to ten SMEs exhibiting at the show.

The GulfHost exhibition is predicted to attract 50,000 visitors from the multi-billion dollar Middle East market.  The new home for foodservice equipment – previously located within Gulfood – will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre, 18-20 September 2017, and is part of Dubai Hospitality Week.

“GulfHost is a great opportunity for UK companies wanting to export to this dynamic, lucrative market,” said Stephen Goodliff, chair of the CESA Export Group.

“It’s a new show and, with Dubai Hospitality Week happening at the same time, it will pull in key buyers from across the Middle East. We are working closely with the organisers to ensure that the show builds on the success of the previous exhibitions in Dubai.”

CESA has compiled a brochure detailing its exhibitor package, which is available to download from the ‘events’ section at

“Space in the UK Pavilion is limited to 400 square meters and already half of the area has been booked up,” says Goodliffe. “Any UK equipment supplier considering exhibiting should contact us right away.”
