Abdul Salam Al Madani, Chairman of Board of Directors in Index Corporation for Conventions and Exhibitions, said, "The deals included electronic devices related to communication and aid. Other Middle Eastern countries bought developed mine detectors and some companies are still negotiating with UAE and AGCC countries to provide facilities and devices for aid."

Mr Al Madani added that around 4,870 visitors from all around the world attended the exhibition. Describing the response from visitors as overwhelming in numbers, especially considering that it was the exhibition's debut in the UAE, Mr Al Madani said, "Considering the success of the exhibition this year we have decided to expand the exhibition three times its original size to allow 1,200 humanitarian and social institutions and associations to participate next year."

"The UAE is now considered the fourth most developed country in the humanitarian and charity sector internationally. This is due to the aid the UAE provides the world over," Mr Al Madani added.
