Further, the exhibition aims to boost mutually beneficial relationships between traders and falcon owners both locally and internationally, and to explore products and services in this important youth sector.

S' hail

It was decided by the Organizing Committee to hold the Exhibition under the name "Sohail" (Canopus), which is a star that has been closely-related to hunting. Hunters eagerly wait for Sohail, year after year, as it marks the beginning of overland journeys, hunting and falconry when the temperature started to drop gradually and falconers get ready for the upcoming season and prepare all their hunting items and equipment.

The 24th day of August each year is the 1 Sohail, which is followed by falcon migration approximately 20 days after.

It is divided into four phases starting with "Attarfah", which extends for 13 days and is characterized by cool temperature at night while hot temperatures are still recorded during the day. The second phase is "Ajjabhah", which extends for 13 days and it is the first star of Autumn where nights become colder and days become cooler. Then, "Azzubrah" starts, which also extends for 13 days and in which nights are too cold that sleeping in the open is not recommended. The final phase of the star "Sohail" is "Asarfah", which extends for 13 days and marks the end of hot weather. Sohail star was the subject of many poems of both classical Arabic and Nabati poets.
