Your Guide to Cabsat 2021
The Cabsat show is held at the DWTC in Dubai. This year’s event is 26th to 28th October 2021, a move from its usual dates due to the global pandemic. The show concentrates on Broadcast and Satellite communications. The show is the biggest broadcast show in the Middle East and forms one of the 4 main broadcast events, alongside NAB, IBC, and Broadcast Asia.
Think Expo logistics have a wealth of knowledge in shipping to Cabsat with some rather specific requirements for paperwork. Paul Pini shares some of his show experiences with us.
Freight links to Dubai are very good, with excellent air and sea capacity as Dubai is the regional hub for freight, however customs clearance can take a few days so we would suggest shipping no later than 11th October, but please contact us with your requirements.
Shipping to the UAE is very straightforward as long as you dot all the I’s and cross all the T’s. The paperwork requirements are that original paperwork is sent forward with the goods, so this means we need to collect your freight a few days earlier so that correct weights and dimensions can be added to your paperwork.
Think Expo Logistics will provide you full instructions on how to complete your paperwork and will guide you through the process from start to finish.
The DWTC is a great venue with lots of good hotels within walking distance from the venue. If you travel a little further out of Sheik Zayed road and visit the Palm you will find some of the very best bars and restaurants, Nobu is possibly the nicest place Paul has been in Dubai. Here are some other top spots...
If you get some time off, there are many great golf courses to explore or you can take a trip into the desert for a Bedouin evening with dune driving in a 4x4 or if you fancy something a little cooler, you can go indoor skying at Dubai Mall.
Paul’s personal favourite is the amazing water park at the Atlantis hotel, with rides and slides for all levels of bravery!
If shopping is your thing, you really are spoilt for choice with an amazing array of malls. But if you have time, don’t forget to visit the Gold Souk or experience the sights and smells of the Spice Souk. All in all, Dubai is a great place to visit.
