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.

Inspired by the epic real-life story of the 'Tractor Girl', Kanoo Machinery as the official dealer for Massey Fergusson, was invited to partake in the exhibition. Members of Kanoo Machinery, Mogallan Bhagat and Khalid Abdul Hussain Ali, under the leadership of James McSorley; displayed their Massey Ferguson 4708 tractor, along with roll up stands and Kanoo products in the event.

Other participants in the Festival with extraordinary stories included the first UAE official team to travel around the world by cars, first Emirati to climb the Everest, the Dubai Riders who traveled around the world by motor bike, a U.K. woman who makes Ottawa stop on horseback ride around the world, an adventurer from Morocco who swims around the world, a Japanese man travelling around the world by bike, and the first woman from U.K. who rowed three oceans.
