Footwear Export to MiddleEast


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



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


Hi Susie

Many thanks for the information. I will contact Ceri after Christmas.

Have a nice Christmas and Happy New Year




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
