Ireland – UAE Trade mission – November 13th to 15th 2016
Along with over 30 other Irish companies, I travelled to this lovely part of the world to investigate the market for our solar and LED products as part of an Enterprise Ireland Ministerial Trade Mission.
The event started on Monday 13th with a showcase on Digital Media and Smart City Technologies attended by our Minister Charley Flanagan and H.E Noura Al Kaabi from Abu Dhabi where I presented Solar AdTek‘s solar, LED lighting and Smart City solutions to an audience of senior government and private sector companies in this space. This was followed by a reception in the Irish embassy where there was plenty of networking with the large Irish diaspora.
The following two days were taken up with meeting potential clients in the outdoor industry in Dubai. I would like to thank these people for their welcome at these very fruitful meetings. The market here is very mature with new technologies being used alongside the more traditional outdoor formats. We feel that there is lots of potential in this region and plan to be back there shortly to follow up on the many enquiries we revieved
