Footwear Export to MiddleEast

Question

We are considering exporting a selected range of our Footwear to MiddleEast market.

Could you please advise how do we establish contact details of local wholesalers / Footwear agents or representatives?

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards

Chirag

Answer

Hi Chirag,
I suggest that you make contact with the UKTI here in Dubai. The best person would be Ceri on Ceri.Yates@fco.gov.uk. She should be able to help you or direct you to someone else who can.

Answer

I think the response given by Susie is most helpful. I would recommend contacting UKTI Dubai.

In my own experience there is nothing like 2 or 3 hours on the internet and shortlisting potential contacts based on things such as their web site or press articles related to their business. Once you have done that, write to a few? I’ve also found that tie-ing a visit ( cheap air ticket) into one of the trade shows or events in the area you are seeking to export to is very valueable. Have a look at the trade show calendar for Dubai. Plan your visit and even try to make one or two appointments before you leave.

Good Luck
