Equestrian events, traditional arts, products, handicrafts and cultural and entertainment activities packed into five days
28 August 2019, Abu Dhabi, UAE ~ The much anticipated ADIHEX exhibition will be held from 27-31 August, 2019, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC) and is considered to be the most popular exhibition of hunting, equestrian and heritage conservation in the region.
Sustainable Hunting will be the focus of this edition. The exhibition will be held early this year before falconry hunting season (Al Maqnas) so that the falconers can acquire all the tools and equipment they need before the start of the season. This is in addition to the vast amount of products available where UAE nationals will be able to buy hunting weapons from the finest and the largest weapon companies, both local and international.
There will also be a number of events designed specifically for families in line with the summer vacation. The exhibition will highlight the cultural mobility in the UAE. Similarly the exhibition aims to promote cultural opportunities and arts that reflect the national identity and activate heritage conservation efforts. Another objective is revealing the role of many UAE institutions and initiatives in consolidating the original values of the people of the UAE and its culture through the exhibition.
ADIHEX began in 2003 and has become one of the most important exhibitions in the world in its field, achieving success in previous editions in terms of attendance of the media and visitors. The exhibition was able to attract more than 100,000 visitors, representing more than 120 nationalities in last year’s edition in 2018.
