Deutsche Messe postpones premiere of industrial tradeshows in Dubai until 2011

Deutsche Messe is postponing the industrial trade fairs CeMAT MIDDLE EAST, Industrial Automation (IA) MIDDLE EAST and Motion, Drive & Automation (MDA) MIDDLE EAST – all originally schedu­led to take place in February 2010 – until 2011.


Due to scheduling changes and a resulting overlap of topics, the Dubai World Trade Center is no longer able to accommodate the trade fairs at the originally planned time and location.

 “In the eyes of Deutsche Messe, the United Arab Emirates, and particularly Dubai, continue to represent a key exhibition location in the medium and long term. After careful analysis, we have decided to postpone the debut of these tradeshows until 2011. There are topic overlaps at the exhibition venue which now make it impossible to stage our exhibitions within the original framework. We require the premium exhibition facility for our events in order to fulfill the needs of our customers and our preferred venue to hold this trade show would be The Dubai World Trade Centre,” explained Dr. Andreas Gruchow, Member of the Managing Board of Deutsche Messe.
