2016 Key attendance figures

Despite tougher trading conditions across many parts of the Middle East and Africa, there was a strong turnout for the 2016 MEAFA Conference. Nearly 500 industry professionals met in Dubai for the event, underlining the sustained interest in the region and its travellers. Suppliers accounted for around half of the participants, while one in four represented duty free and travel retail operators or landlords. Geographically, delegates based in the EU were the most numerous, marginally ahead of a strong Middle Eastern presence.
