ADIHEX issues “Guidelines for the Hunting Guns Sector”

Every year, the Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition (ADIHEX) attracts major American and European manufacturers of hunting weapons. The hunting guns sector is a major draw at ADIHEX, the largest and one of the most prominent events of its kind in the Middle East and Africa, where enthusiasts and professionals from all over the world look forward to attending every year. 
ADIHEX has always attracted huge numbers of regional and international participants. This year, numbers are expected to increase due to the extension of the exhibition period to a full week.
Exhibitors in the hunting guns sector, increased their sales during previous editions of ADIHEX by meeting with major buyers, industry leaders, and marketing experts, as well as making deals and partnerships with some of the most prominent local agents and dealers to market their innovative products. In addition to this, manufacturers and individual buyers were granted facilities for the first time last year. 
Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Ruler's Representative in Al Dhafra Region and Chairman of the Emirates Falconers’ Club, the 18th edition of Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition (ADIHEX 2021) will be organized by the Emirates Falconers’ Club from September 27 to October 3, 2021, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC). 
The Higher Organizing Committee has issued ‘Guidelines for the Hunting Guns Sector’ for the benefit of exhibitors in this part of ADIHEX. It includes the guidelines issued by Abu Dhabi Police GHQ for selling hunting guns, and clearly lays out the regulations, conditions, and procedures that relevant exhibitors must comply with.  
Hunting weapons that are permitted in the exhibition include different types of hunting rifles, handguns, legacy swords and knives, hunting knives, wood and plastic archery arrows, and certain calibres of air guns. Exhibitors must ensure that buyers hold permits issued by the competent licensing authority in their home country and by the Abu Dhabi Police before allowing them to purchase weapons.
