Located in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Expo Centre Sharjah naturally commands a strategic position at the heart of the region’s business and commercial hub. As a stable and dynamic country, the UAE is an established gateway to the Middle East and beyond into the CIS region, North Africa and the Indian Subcontinent.
Established in 1977 by the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Expo Centre Sharjah was the first facility of its kind in the UAE and today, with its recent expansion, is at the forefront of trade fairs, exhibitions and conventions in the region.
The first-established trade exhibition centre in the United Arab Emirates, Expo Centre Sharjah became a booming centre for international trade in 1977. Over the years, it became the most popular trade exhibition venue and home to the Gulf's best-attended trade shows.
It serves, almost exclusively, the growing trade of the Northern Emirates of Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman, Fujairah and Umm Al Quwain. It links, by arterial highways, the capital of Abu Dhabi and beyond into Qatar, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the Middle East. Northwards it serves Oman and Yemen.
On September 16, 2002, His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, inaugurated the state-of-the-art Expo Centre Sharjah facility.
The new world-class exhibition and meeting complex is a spectacular tribute to the growing importance of the UAE as the commercial hub of the Middle East. As the region's prime meetings destination, the centre offers the perfect combination of sophisticated technical facilities and professional services across a broad spectrum of events.
