Gary Williams, Event Director of The Leisure Show Dubai 2016 at dmg events, said: “We have had a surge in stand bookings this year from brands seeking to make the most of Dubai’s booming fitness scene. Last year sports and fitness firms accounted for one in every five exhibitors at the show. This time around, 36% of those attending will be exercise and training based. That is a massive leap. Health awareness is at an all-time high in Dubai and this is reflected in the leisure pursuits of not only those who live here, but visitors and tourists too.”
