IATF10 – a successful event

Jan '10
The 24th International Autumn Trade Fair (IATF10), the International Fashion Jewellery & Accessories Fair)(IFJA10) and International Watch & Clock Fair (IWCF10) concluded, with the number of trade visitors reaching 11,921.

The organizers have announced that the next edition of IATF dates will be held from 13th until 15th of December 2010, and 55 per cent of space was already booked on the last day of the show.

Multi-million dollars deals were done during the three days of the show, an indication that the consumer goods trade in the UAE is as strong as ever, according to Al Fajer Information and Services.

Suhas Dhaimade, Exhibition Manager, said: “In the 24th year, IATF10 has successfully emerged as a leading buyer-seller meeting ground for the consumer goods segment over an area of 13000 square meters. We saw plenty of new companies wishing to expand footprint in Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.”

This year, the fair hosted six official national pavilions supported from their governments. The national pavilions include 300 exhibitors from China, 80 from Hong Kong, 35 from Korea, 25 from Iran, 25 from India and 15 from Malaysia. Other countries participating at IATF10 at individual levels include Japan, Indonesia, Poland, UAE, Saudi Arabia and Taiwan.

IATF10 unveiled an exciting mix of products comprising cosmetics, foodstuffs, electronics, household appliances, plastic household products, toys, stationery, electrical items, handicrafts, carpets, garments, textiles, house ware, kitchen ware, sanitary ware, novelties, machinery, machine tools, hardware accessories and diary products.

The International Fashion Jewellery & Accessories Fair (IFJA10) and International Watch & Clock Fair (IWCF10) showed good footfall.

IFJA and IWCF are the region's only specialized and dedicated fairs for fashion jewellery, imitation jewellery, costume jewellery, silver Jewellery, gold plated, fashion accessories as well as all kinds of watches and clocks. The shows have attracted almost 100 exhibitors from 12 countries, including group pavilions from India, China, Italy, Lebanon and UAE.

Exhibitors to both shows include gold and silver-plated base metal jewellery, costume and fashion jewellery, crystal, cubic zirconia, rhinestone and enamel jewellery, semi-precious gemstone jewellery, loose polished semi-precious stones, beads, minerals and other materials, jewellery parts and components, belts and buckles, hair ornaments, scarves, shawls and gloves, handbags, wallets and purses, branded watches and clocks.

Officials from the participating companies were upbeat about the industry and expressed satisfaction at the opportunity to network with key players.

Mr Chen Shuo of Chinese Pavilion said: "We look at IATF as a premier exhibition that serves as a window to the consumer trade industry in the region. We always make important contacts during the exhibition, which we are confident, will translate into business deals in the near future."
