Gulfood is held in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.). The UAE is the largest U.S. consumer food export market in the Middle East, and the 2nd largest U.S. export market for processed foods in the Middle East. Additionally, it is a strategic location connecting various regions in the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and Africa, and the Gulfood show attracts buyers from all of the surrounding regions as well as the world!
