Its strategic location in the Middle East, also provides exporters a smooth access to the EMEA region and ArabPlast is a perfect platform for manufacturers, recyclers, businessmen and traders alike. 

ArabPlast, a biannual B2B trade show, brings together professionals and decision-makers from the most resilient industry.  It offers a platform to present innovations and technology, establish new businesses, exchange know-how, and to interact for a productive enhancement that will increase business profitability and add value to the industry.  Largest contributors are from India, Europe, Taiwan, and China.
