The event, including the Remanexpo product group, will take place in Dubai from 14 to 16 March 2017, with global stationery and office suppliers targeting the “emerging” market.

In a press release, show organisers Messe Frankfurt Middle East reported that the “emerging Middle East and African” markets are making “leading international brands turn to” the event to “boost regional exports”. The event will take place from 14 to 16 March at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre in the UAE, and the company added that international suppliers “are turning to the Middle East and Africa (MEA) for future business growth”.

The UAE is also “presenting itself as the ideal gateway to access hard-to-reach markets”, with growth globally in stationery and office supplies “expected to come from emerging markets” including the MEA. The organisers cited data from analysts Technavio, who predict that there will be an “annual market increase” in the MEA of 15 percent, as well as fellow analysts Conlumino, who estimate the MEA market for “paper, stationery and office supplies” will be worth $12 billion (€11.3 billion) by 2019.

Over 300 exhibitors from over 36 countries will be taking part in the show, with Messe Frankfurt Middle East noting that “while some suppliers are now just testing the waters, other have been in the market for many years”. The seventh edition of the show will make it the “region’s largest B2B trade show covering the entire range of stationery and office supplies”, with a “strong European presence” seeing exhibitors from the UK, Portugal, France, Germany, Spain and Italy.

Other “key exporting exhibitor countries” with exhibitors present include China, Thailand, Indonesia, South Korea, Japan and Turkey, while Messe Frankfurt Middle East pointed out that last year’s show saw a “record turnout of exhibitors and visitors” which “firmly cement[ed]” the show’s position as the “must-attend trade show” for the region’s paper, office supplies and stationery markets. In total, last year saw 6,774 visitors from 101 countries, an 11 percent increase on 2015, with 304 exhibitors.

Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Middle East, commented: “Shifting tides in international trade and economic uncertainty over the last 12 months has meant global manufacturers have had to refocus their export outlook, and the MEA is grabbing their attention. Paperworld Middle East provides unmatched access to market representatives from the fast-growing Middle East, Africa, Central and South Asia regions, and has seen increasing numbers of leading international brands and players participating from across the world.”

Paperworld Middle East, the region’s largest trade fair for paper, office supplies and stationery, is eyeing continued growth, as its launch partners lead the charge of returning exhibitors with high hopes for a big year in 2016.

With more than 250 exhibitors from 42 countries expected this year, the sixth edition of the three-day event in Dubai starting 1 March, will be nearly 50% larger in size than the inaugural edition in 2011, which featured 202 exhibitors covering 3 500 square metres of exhibition space.

According to its organiser Messe Frankfurt Middle East, the growth of Paperworld Middle East can be attributed to the globally recognised Paperworld brand, while the strategic location in Dubai presents the ideal gateway for international manufacturers to target emerging regional markets throughout the Middle East and Africa.

That in turn has led to a steady increase in international buyers to the dedicated annual trade show – from 4 420 in 2011 to 6 099 from 115 countries in 2015 – as the wider region keeps pace with expanding economies and a surging population base.

Another major indicator of the show’s success is the continued support from its five Launch Partners, which will all line-up again when Paperworld Middle East returns.

These are headed by UAE-based manufacturer Farook International Stationery (FIS), which exports 10 UAE paper and stationery brands throughout the world, proudly flying the Made in UAE flag in more than 90 countries.
