Exhibitions play a major role in the continued growth of a nation’s economy, and I am proud to say that over the last three decades, CONNECT has made a significant contribution to the industries it serves and the region as a whole.

CONNECT is a company with a strong legacy of professional operations in organizing high-profile, highly targeted trade exhibitions and conferences. Its vision has always been to be a leading provider of business and investment platforms in the Middle East. To date, it has been able to establish and position itself as a long standing player in the international exhibitions arena. Since its establishment in 1986, each year has been a milestone, creating gateways for local and international companies and individual stakeholders to easily and conveniently access available and emerging business opportunities and bringing in new players into the market. Moving forward, CONNECT is committed in its mission to promote and advance the exhibitions industry by continuously developing shows that encourage and stimulate trade and commerce and working closely with the government to implement its initiatives.
