More than 10,000 visitors are expected to attend this year’s Muslim Lifestyle Expo (MLE2016), as the show moves to its new home, Manchester’s EventCity.

“MLE2016 is becoming a firm fixture in the calendar for consumers, brands and businesses,” said Tahir Mirza, founder of the expo. “We are delighted to bring the event to Manchester this year to tap into the thriving Muslim business and consumer base.”

Held on 29-30 October, the event will feature a live catwalk show with leading fashion brands, a live food demo theatre featuring Ali Imdad from the Great British Bake Off, comedy from BBC Three’s Guz Khan, a health zone, business seminars and a kid’s zone.

More than 100 exhibitors from 15 countries will showcase their products and services over the two-day weekend exhibition.

“We’ve had a tremendous response already and it’s going to be a record-breaking year with attendees and businesses who are attending from all over the world.

Last year’s event, held at Ricoh Arena, attracted more than 7,000 visitors from across the UK and over 90 exhibitors from countries including Malaysia, Norway, Turkey, USA and Singapore.

Rauf Mirza, director of the Muslim Lifestyle Expo, said: “The exhibition is aimed at being a family-friendly and culturally diverse event to promote the positive and vibrant aspects of British Muslims.

“Our aim is to showcase the value of the global Muslim lifestyle movement in a contemporary, dynamic, fun and enjoyable way. MLE is an inclusive event for all and welcomes people from all faiths and backgrounds.”

Earlier this year, the Muslim Lifestyle Expo won the Services in Creativity and Technology category at The British Muslim Awards 2016.
