“Dates are a holy fruit, full of advantages, but unfortunately not well known in the world. This year, this dates show was fantastic and totally different from previous years. The organizers have invested to introduce all key persons from the global dates’ market, and I appreciate all their efforts.”

We have participated at the Emirates International Date Palm Festival before, but the participation this year is very effective and we have achieved our targets. We are expecting good deals this year because commercially the show was very good. We thank organisers on success of the Abu Dhabi International Date Palm Exhibition.
