Also the stand had a special visitor in the name of Dr. Thani Bin Ahmed Al-Zeyoudi, UAE Minister of Climate Change and Environment.
 
His Highness toured the pavilion with great interest and was very impressed with the idea behind the hyper-loop. So was the case with Dr Thani, both of whom were given a brief insight into the hyper-loop concept.
 
They wished ADIHEX in general and the HH pavilion in particular a great success.
 
The exhibition is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler’s Representative in the Al Dhafra Region in Abu Dhabi and Chairman of the Emirates Falconers Club and supported by the Cultural Programmes and Heritage Festival Committee.
 
The five-day exhibition held annually is dedicated to equestrian and outdoor hunting activities in the region with over 600 international, national and local firms, engaged in equestrian activities, taking part in huge numbers.
 
 
The His Highness Sheikh Mansoor Festival is set up on an area of 4000 sq. meters.
