DOMOTEX 2008, all set to break previous records
May '08
The preparations for the third edition of DOMOTEX Middle East at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre are in full swing. This year's event from May 25 to 27, 2008 is expected to be attended by over 7,000 professional visitors, mainly from the Middle East region. Around 250 exhibitors including the national pavilions from Afghanistan, Belgium, China, Croatia, Germany, India, and the USA will occupy about 12,000 square meters of exhibition space.

The growth of the carpets and floor coverings industry has been bolstered by the major boom in the Middle East region's construction sector. There are currently over 1,400 on-going projects in the Gulf region worth an estimated value of USD 697 billion. Of that, the UAE accounts for 32 per cent, making the construction sector the largest non-oil sector in the country.

Angela Schaschen, Managing Director, Deutsche Messe Dubai Branch, said, "The interest in DOMOTEX Middle East year-on-year has been remarkable, and it reaffirms the importance of hosting such a specialised trade fair in the region. The unprecedented boom in the construction industry has been one of the key factors that have propelled demand for floor coverings in the region, which in turn has significantly amplified the scope for premier international exhibitions like DOMOTEX Middle East."

"Going by the success of the 2007 edition of the exhibition, the encouraging exhibitor and visitor feedback we have received, and the excellent exhibitor response for this year's edition, we are confident that DOMOTEX Middle East 2008 will create new records in terms of exhibitor and visitor participation," she added.
