    [Sylvia Shaw, Delta Clothing Ltd]:
    "I have been doing it for about 7 years now. It's been very successful every year."

    Into its 17th year now, this trade event for the entertainment, amusement and leisure industries brings together operators of visitor attractions and their potential suppliers.

    [Sylvia Shaw, Delta Clothing Ltd]:
    "The most important point is the quality of the customers that actually attend the exhibition and it's a very unique product that we sell and it's sometimes difficult to find the right market area and Dubai is excellent for that."

    In keeping with Dubai's tradition of large-scale projects, the expo is the primary trade event for more than 80 percent of exhibitors in Middle Eastern, African, Mediterranean and Asian countries.

    [Gian Anestis Avraam, VP Sales, QUBICA AMF]:
    "For sure Dubai has always been a very central place where people are used to coming to make business so this exhibition has been growing and has been attracting a lot of attention, so people come to Dubai because Dubai is the place to be to make this type of business."

    Despite the challenging economic climate, all kinds of leisure facilities are opening in the region and many more are being planned.

    And so it seems that at the Dubai leisure expo, family fun and serious business do mix.
