Office Exhibition to attract industry leaders
WITH the fourth Office Exhibition scheduled to take place in May 2005, interest is already apparent from exhibitors who recognise the need to take advantage of this niche forum.
Following the success of last year’s exhibition, exhibitors and visitors alike can expect to see the latest in office furniture, interiors, services and technology. This year’s show will welcome renowned distributors such as H20 Concepts, Bafco Trading LLC, Marlin Furniture, Al Shamsi, Famco and Juma Al Majid who have been active in the international office furnishing market for many years. These companies represent the world’s most prominent brands such as Herman Miller (USA), Boss Design (UK), Knoll (USA), Miller Office Systems (USA), AIS (USA), Socoa (France), Battochio (Italy), and Haworth (USA).
The large-scale development in the region is highlighted by the phenomenal growth of Dubai alone. Examples of new projects include the new Dubai Business Bay, Jebel Ali Airport and, of course, the ever-growing Dubailand project. The scale of such developments directly benefits the Office Exhibition where exhibitors will be able to showcase products and services to an international audience.
As one of the busiest markets for construction in the world, Dubai is attracting new players from around the globe giving a clear indication to the market that, with the current level of infrastructure development, the Office Exhibition creates a much needed niche trade show for the region.
Paula Al Chami, project manager for the Office Exhibition, said, “With the move to the Dubai International Exhibition Centre, this year’s show will continue the trend of growth in exhibitor and visitor numbers. The Office Exhibition continues to portray new and established companies from the Gulf region and overseas, ensuring that the purchase requirements of trade specifiers, interior designers and architects can be fulfilled at one event.”
Being held from May 22-24, the Office Exhibition will be open daily to all trade visitors between 11am and 7pm in Halls 3 and 4 alongside the Hotel Show, which occupies halls 5, 6 and 7. The best of office furniture, office interiors, interior contractors and office technology suppliers will be present to display their latest products to regional and global buyers from the office, residential, conference and hotel sectors.
