Exhibitors at DOMOTEX and R+T leverage resilient growth of key regional sectors
Jul '10
DOMOTEX Middle East 2010, the only dedicated carpets and floor coverings exhibition in the Middle East and North Africa region, that was held concurrently with R+T Middle East 2010, the Middle East spin-off of the world's leading show for roller shutters, doors, gates and sun-protection systems, concluded recently at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, with 225 exhibitors from 34 countries leveraging the steady growth of the region's construction, hospitality and industrial sectors. More than 4,860 trade visitors attended the two shows that were inaugurated by Abdul Rahman Saif Al Ghurair, Chairman of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI).

Angela Schaschen, Managing Director, Deutsche Messe Dubai, organiser of the two shows, said: “The region's construction and hospitality sectors are currently witnessing a period of renewed growth, with several major commercial and residential projects underway. This has created new business opportunities for the carpets and flooring solutions sector, which was clearly reflected by the exhibitor sentiment at DOMOTEX Middle East 2010. Likewise, the significant increase in industrial projects across the region, coupled with the construction sector growth, meant that the exhibitors at the inaugural edition of R+T Middle East had a lot to look forward to.”

DOMOTEX Middle East 2010 assembled a powerful selection of leading global exhibitors who presented a comprehensive selection of carpets and flooring products and services, including hand-made and machine-made carpets; textile and resilient floor coverings; parquet and other wood floors; laminates; ceramic tiles, natural stone floors and marble, floors for sports arenas and sports facilities; fibres, yarns and textiles; application and floor laying techniques and equipment; machinery and technology. The trade event targeted wholesalers and retailers as well as decision-makers from construction companies, architects, interior designers, project planners, floor layers and fitters.

This edition of DOMOTEX Middle East once again offered a new, higher level of experience and sophistication in the series of interactive networking activities it featured. The Designers Corner presented the latest breakthroughs in design flooring as well as a select range of inspiring reference projects that will help stimulate new ideas and design concepts. Likewise, the Creative Flooring section, facilitated by experienced professionals of The Academy of Flooring Skills (TAOFS) from the UK, was enhanced to offer more interactive and engaging demonstration sessions focusing on the most up-to-date techniques and products.

R+T Middle East 2010 on the other hand featured a comprehensive range of specialised products and services, including roller shutters and accessories; windows, window shutters and accessories; awnings; Venetian blinds and roller blinds; doors/gates and accessories; drive and control systems; electrical security equipment; business fittings and furnishings; and technical literature.
