Kanoo Machinery participates in the 2015 Dubai Travelers Festival

Dubai, UAE: Kanoo Machinery took part in the biggest gathering for globe trotters, record-breakers and voyagers from around the world, the Dubai Travelers Festival, which was held at Mushrif Park, Dubai on 16th – 19th December 2015, under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, with the support of Hamdan Bin Mohammed Heritage Center.

The Dubai Travelers Festival is the leading Travelers & Adventurers festival in the region where seasoned explorers meet annually to share their experiences and stories through lectures, seminars and photo exhibitions from their journeys across the world, by a myriad of means (car, boat, foot, horse, camel, bicycle and plane) - all driven by the spirit of passion and adventure.

The Fourth Annual 2015 Festival featured Manon Ossevoort, the first woman to travel from the village where she was born (Netherlands, EU), all the way to the South Pole, by a tractor! She arrived after continuously driving the Massey Ferguson MF 5610 tractor from Europe through Africa and across the rugged, icy landscape of Antarctica.
