This aligns with the Emirate’s ongoing development, which necessitates significant growth in the exhibition industry and specialized events to effectively support various economic and commercial sectors, including the perfume industry,” said HE Abdullah Sultan Al Owais, Chairman of Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Expo Centre Sharjah.
Al Owais added that the perfume industry offers numerous investment opportunities and is experiencing continuous growth in the UAE market. This highlights the importance of hosting specialized exhibitions that enhance the market’s potential for prosperity.
For his part, HE Saif Mohammed Al Midfa, CEO of Expo Centre Sharjah, said that the UAE Perfumes and Oud Exhibition is a quality and innovative addition to the lineup of events in Sharjah, complementing other Expo Centre-organized events focused on luxury, elegance, and beauty, such as the Watch & Jewellery Middle East Show, and the Jewels of Emirates Show.
He emphasized that the center is committed to delivering a distinguished version of the UAE Perfumes and Oud Exhibition that attracts prominent local, Gulf, and international names in the perfume industry.
“By bringing together the finest and latest products under one roof, the exhibition aims to meet the expectations of perfume enthusiasts and luxury lovers, offering them the opportunity to explore and purchase the latest global, regional, and local products, as well as the finest types of ouds,” Al Midfa added.
With the rising demand for perfumes and the significant market size of $2.7 billion in 2022 within the GCC countries, the upcoming gathering is anticipated to attract a high volume of visitors.
