NRS Relief concludes a dynamic participation in DIHAD 2018 in Dubai
Together with our parent company NRS International and co-subsidiaries TANA Netting and H. Sheikh Noor-ud-Din & Sons, NRS Relief once again participated in the Dubai International Humanitarian and Development (DIHAD) expo, the biggest annual gathering of humanitarian experts in the Middle East. This year’s event was held held from 5-7 March at the Dubai World Trade Center in the UAE.
As a Dubai-based company, the three-day conference and exhibition provided an opportunity for us to interact with our regional and global clients. It also enabled us to meet with new and potential customers and to further nurture our business relations with our existing partners. The DIHAD 2018 theme was “The sustainability of emergency aid: The intensifying search for the appropriate strategies, methodologies and resources to meet the global humanitarian challenges in the years ahead.”
At our exhibition stand, we showcased our full range of fit-for-purpose relief products, from multipurpose tents (in unique miniature versions) to thermal blankets. We also officially introduced to the UAE market our innovative solar lamps – the Solar Shelter Kit and Enlight Essential – developed by Enlight, our new solar brand.
Here are the highlights from the event:
In addition, we took part in DIHAD’s pre-conference workshop to discuss the ‘Sustainability of Humanitarian Response.’ The attendees of the event, organized by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), represented multiple UN agencies, governments, aid organizations, academia and private companies.
