We are experts in real and artificial winter solutions, providing a comprehensive range of snow and ice-making systems, equipment, consumables and materials. Coupled with our extensive inventory of winter-themed decor and scenery, and our trusted network of local suppliers that includes set builders, event organisers and staffing agencies, we are the go-to Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region supplier of winter-themed special effects.

From corporate events to private parties, film productions to television commercials, one-day events to permanent installations, the Desert Snow team has the knowledge, expertise and equipment to realise your creative vision. We offer cost-effective, easy-to-use, ethical, fireproof artificial snow products, developed for the big screen, packaged for your industry or event.

We fully comprehend the challenges in providing special effects locally - cross-border transport, local regulations, restricted locations, stringent health and safety, tight budgets and quick turnarounds - making Desert Snow your partner of choice when working in the Middle East. With over 15 years experience working in the special effects, events and entertainment industries, our team will help you to achieve your winter effect using one of our huge range of over 200 products and techniques.

From a single snowflake to a winter wonderland, you need to look no further than Desert Snow. Our head office in Dubai services the entire MENA market, undertaking projects of all sizes in the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Egypt. Our other office Cape Snow in Cape Town in South Africa services the whole of South Africa and neighbouring countries. We also work in between, having used the capabilities and teams from both offices to support projects in West and East Africa.
