Dubai – United Arab Emirates, 7th March 2017:  His Excellency Sami Al Qamzi, Director General of the Department of Economic Development (DED) in Dubai, inaugurated today the 9th edition of the Dubai Drink Technology Expo, which is held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from 7-9 March 2017. Al Qamzi was accompanied by a number of officials, specialists, and keynote speakers from the beverage technology industry in the UAE and the region.

Al Qamzi toured the exhibition area where he was introduced to the latest cutting-edge technologies in beverage production machinery, process and quality control equipment, storage, transport and services associated with the beverage industry.

“The Drink Technology Expo has seen an increase of about 10% in the number of participants and countries this year, which reflects the level of growth achieved by the local drink technology sector. It also underlines the significance of Dubai as a business hub and gateway regionally and internationally, especially for companies seeking new business opportunities,” commented Al Qamzi.

Al Qamzi added that the event is set to attract a large number of visitors and industry professionals given the diversity of products, services and technology showcased as well as the opportunities available  for competitive business partnerships and investment in the flourishing beverage industry.

From his side, Eng.

Nowadays, the increased segmentation of products, the rise of healthy food trends, and the reduction of operational costs will with no doubt present challenges in the near future. Through Dubai Drink Technology Expo, we bring together this year more than 110 leading local and international companies presenting their innovative packaging and manufacturing processes and their diverse product portfolios to address the changing needs of consumers.”

“Meanwhile, the 6th Global Water & Beverage Technology Congress held under the theme ‘The future of beverage processing and packaging,' will witness the participation of a number of top notch speakers addressing the latest developments and innovations in the beverage industry over three days.” He added
