The fourth edition of Paper Arabia was held last 18th-20th September, this year at the Dubai Trade Convention Center. The annual event had a total of 120 exhibitors, showcasing brands from 150 companies as participants.

Rajesh Nair, exhibition manager, Al Fajer Information & Services said, "The unanimous verdict on this year's exhibition is that Paper Arabia continues to be a wonderful networking opportunity where companies can meet with their customers and make their presence felt. But that's not all. The event is also a springboard to launch new products and concepts, whether it is a new cutting knife or a whole new concept for production of tissue.

Future plans are there to jointly work with an international paper forum starting next year. We are still working out on the proposal and we will disclose the details once the idea is finalized. The feed back from the exhibitors is showing 98% participation confirmation for next edition." A total of 6120 visitors from GCC, Africa, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Srilanka participated at the expo.
