(MENAFN - Arab News) Jeddah International Trade Fair (JITF), the longest established multisector exhibition in Saudi Arabia in its 25th edition, will take place from Dec. 15-18 at Jeddah Centre for Forums & Events.
The event has developed with the tastes and demands of the Saudi market, and is claimed to have gained an unrivaled reputation as a must attend event in the Saudi business calendar.
The fair attracts businessmen from across Saudi Arabia and neighboring Gulf states eager to see the latest products and services on offer from a wide and varied exhibitor profile.
JITF also customarily has the support of a large number of overseas trade
missions based in Saudi Arabia who work closely with their counterpart international trade associations, export promotion bureaus and relevant government bodies in realizing country national pavilions that take part annually with a large number of their leading national exporters.
The annual platform organized by Al-Harithy Company for Exhibitions (ACE) and held with the support of Jeddah Chamber of Commerce & Industry will gather local and international traders, manufacturers, agents, distributors, investors and entrepreneurs from India, Egypt, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Bangladesh and Pakistan alongside a contingent of Saudi companies.
"Over the past 24 editions, JITF has provided global companies with an annual platform to showcase their products and services to Saudi traders and entrepreneurs. Since its launch, many of the goods now available in the marketplace were first seen at JITF," Zahoor Siddique, VP, ACE said.
The Kingdom, he stated, has allocated 650 billion for the implementation of colossal projects in industry and infrastructure, which is proving to be a key driver of the country's vibrant economy. "The rising Saudi franchising industry, estimated at 1.2 billion and growing at 14 percent per annum, is one of the Kingdom's most vibrant sectors with highly promising potential," he added.
The show timings will be 5-10 p.m.
