Vitafloor is the first company to register from Norway. It will showcase a product for the preventive, restorative and medical treatment of larger animals, especially horses.

Reflecting its importance as a major outsourcing centre for equestrian products and services, China General International Co. ltd is the first-ever Chinese company to register at Al Fares. The Chinese have over 3,000 years of equestrian history and are renowned for developing artefacts illuminating the horse's significance in art, warfare, leisure activities and sport.

Al Fares Dubai will be providing visitors and exhibitors with optimum conditions for intensifying business relations with other members of the equine industry,” said Satish Khanna, General Manager of Al Fajer Information & Services, organisers of the three-day event.

As newcomers and previous participants are looking to leverage on the Equine business platform by gaining new business leads, international trading companies and organizations from Canada, USA, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, South Africa, India and Australia have emphatically expressed their support and endorsement of Al Fares Dubai, a premier exhibition for horse products and services in Asia and Africa.

Al Fares International Equine Trade Fair is the oldest and leading exhibition on horse products in Middle East and Africa. It was established in 1995 and has been growing steadily.
