ADIHEX 2017 Summary

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Well another ADIHEX (Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition) has come and gone. ADIHEX is the largest hunting exhibition held in the Middle East each year.

Numbers appeared to be down this year for both longer term, big ticket exhibitors and visitors to the exhibition. This can be explained by the recent downturn in the GCC economy and other geo-political issues currently effecting the region.

Nevertheless those who did exhibit and attend all seemed to be pleased that they did so.

As well as a comprehensive firearms section, there was a wide variety of outdoor and marine equipment on offer, falcons and Arabian horses for sale as well as numerous UAE cultural displays.
