Breakbulk Middle East to be held in Dubai

October 2018

The region’s leading shippers and project cargo professionals will come together at the Breakbulk Middle East, to be held for the first time in Dubai, UAE, in February next year.

The event, hosted by the UAE-based global marine terminal operator DP World, will take place on February 11 and 12, 2019, at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Mohammed Al Muallem, DP World’s chief executive officer and managing director, UAE region, said: “As the official host port sponsor for the fourth edition of Breakbulk Middle East, we believe the event is the ideal platform not only to network with shippers, ports, carriers, forwarders and heavy transport specialists but also to generate informed discussions by industry leaders on the opportunities and challenges facing the global breakbulk and cargo sector.”

Al Muallem continued: “The event is also strategically timed to bring wider focus on the role our industry will play as Expo 2020 draws closer. The demand for handling breakbulk and special project cargo will rise sharply in the months ahead and as a Premier Global Trade Partner of the event DP World UAE Region is working to ensure that Jebel Ali Port is ready to fulfil its role as the premier gateway for expo-bound cargo.”

Ben Blamire, the event’s commercial director, said: “We have been organising this event for years in many countries, but I can say with confidence our Middle East editions were exceptional. We look at the UAE as a permanent platform that will continue to add value to discussions and ideas that are exchanged among participants.”

Alongside the exhibition, Breakbulk Middle East offers a full two-day conference, covering the important topics including GCC economic diversification, drilling down to project opportunities, logistics for post-conflict regions and HSE and workforce strategies.

Leslie Meredith, marketing director, Breabulk Events and Media, said: “We are currently working hard with our event’s partners and consultants to ensure tackling diverse topics than we presented in the previous editions.”

“We have recently opened the registration for our fourth edition and we highly welcome all the industry experts and key players to join and register through the official website,” Meredith concluded.
