Halal Market Potential – A Regional Focus

World Forum Convention Centre, The Hague

the resolution of the 4th World Halal Forum, which was held in Kuala
Lumpur (4th and 5th May 2009), we are proud to announce that the first
regional World Halal Forum will be held in Europe on the 17th and 18th
November 2009.This event will be conducted at the Hague, Netherlands in
a world class facilities of the World Forum Convention Centre. The
theme of the World Halal Forum Europe is ‘Halal Potential – A Regional Focus’.

The Halal industry is one of the fastest growing industries, with
growth rates exceeding traditional industry sectors. At present, supply
of Halal products and services are dominated by non-European countries,
but huge gaps remain between the existing trade level of Halal products
and size of the market potential. Hence, there is a relatively large
un-tapped potential for European countries and companies to be involved
in the Halal industry.

In order to facilitate this, World Halal Forum Europe aims to deliver a
comprehensive understanding on the potential of the global and regional
Halal industry, trade and market access as well as major
characteristics and issues faced by the industry to the delegates/
participants. It is also a perfect platform to conduct business
networking between speakers, panellists and participants of the event
to harness the trade opportunities in this industry.

From a gathering of high-level participants, industry experts,
academicians and scholars, deliberations and resolutions at WHF Europe
2009 will shape the future of the Halal industry.
Be the first to
understand the challenges and issue of the Halal market and get the
leaders advantage by participating.

WHF 2009 is the perfect avenue with expanding opportunities for market
leaders, industry experts, academicians, and Islamic scholars to gather
and comment on the Global Halal Standard, as well as gain insights on
