At the end of last month we attended ARABLAB 2015. It’s an event we’ve exhibited at since 2012 and it’s always exciting. This year was no exception; it was a hugely successful event.
ARABLAB is an annual trade show held in Dubai. It’s the place to go to learn about and buy cutting edge technology from a huge array of fields including forensics, petrochemicals, agriculture, and, of course, water quality and monitoring equipment. It’s very well attended by buyers across the growing African, Middle-Eastern and Asian markets.
