Al Owais stressed that Al Asayl Exhibition has come to realise the wise directives of H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, which seek to promote the sustainability of traditional sports, as they are seen to be an intrinsic part of the Arab, Emirati, and Gulf heritage.
He said that the show will be a high-caliber addition to the central region’s schedule of events and will certainly benefit the tourist movement while also helping achieve a number of social, cultural, and economic goals. It will also support the central region’s ongoing initiatives to promote tourism by implementing a number of innovative projects.
Al Midfa stated that Expo Al Dhaid has grown into a significant hub for hosting specialised exhibitions that would boost the local economy and satisfy the needs of locals and tourists, and that it will continue to make every effort to preserve the national culture, customs, and traditions, which is what the Al Asayl exhibition is all about.
The exhibition offers the most popular products for taking care of horses and camels, along with stable equipment, sports equipment, supplements, fodder, and animal transportation and relocation equipment at competitive prices.
From holding a series of activities and educational workshops to clarifying how to take care of horses, camels, and falcons, and discussing different diseases that affect them and the proper treatments, the event will highlight international best practices adopted in the breeding and care of purebred animals. Additionally, a session on artificial insemination and bettering animal breeding will be held by a group of veterinarians.
