ABU DHABI, 26th June, 2022 (WAM) — Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition (ADIHEX), and The Game Fair Ltd, have announced the signing of a sponsorship agreement that includes all three Game Fairs in the United Kingdom (UK), Scotland and Wales.
As part of this partnership, 15 prestigious British and international companies will participate in the next edition of the exhibition, and the organisers of The Game Fair will undertake the promotion and marketing of ADIHEX in all fairs they hold across Britain and Europe.
In a statement, The Game Fair highlighted the importance of the partnership with ADIHEX, affirming that the exhibition shares the culture, heritage, and authentic sports of the Emirati people with over 100,000 visitors, including falconers, hunting and equestrian enthusiasts, end users, traders, major buyers, and VIPs from around the world.
