Abu Dhabi to host special building shows
Abu Dhabi, January 14, 2008
The latest building industry solutions incorporating world-class technologies in structural products and components, will be on display at two specialised building shows in Abu Dhabi.
The shows will be organised as part of the Building Futures Gulf by Batimat Exhibition & Conference in Abu Dhabi from April 20 to 23.
The Structure Gulf and Envelope Gulf events will be held simultaneously with two other building shows under the umbrella of the Building Futures Gulf showcasing the façade and joinery systems.
The events will turn the spotlight on critical elements in sustainable building design: cladding, joinery, shutters, façade, roofing, shell materials and construction systems.
The umbrella event is aimed at the Middle East’s booming building construction market and will have four shows devoted to high performance buildings including Intelligent Building Gulf (Intelligent Building solutions and Energy performance) and HVAC Gulf (Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning). Reed Exhibitions is partnering with the International Union of Architects (UIA) to host the show.
Leading industry players such as AMC Protection, the exclusive UAE distributor of Siplast, the world's largest and leading provider of waterproofing solutions, are among the participants at the Structure Gulf expo.
Munzer Akbik, CEO of AMC Protection, said the market growth for its products was mostly driven by construction activity associated with the real estate and tourism sectors which are seeing tremendous growth in Abu Dhabi and elsewhere in the region.
“We hope to use our presence at this exhibition to highlight our market leadership position and enhance our business relationships with architects, developers and clients,” he added.
Envelope Gulf will focus on the latest cladding and glazing products, joinery systems, solar protection systems, architectural facades, access control systems and doors and shutters.
Technal Middle East, the regional distributor and service provider for Technal, an international leader in the design and construction of architectural aluminium applications, is one of the key participants at the Envelope Gulf expo.
Hesham Kameshki, Marketing & Sales Manager at Technal Middle East, is pleased that a major international show dedicated to the building industry is now in the region.
"We in the industry encourage such investment that will be highly regarded by us and by our customers," he said, noting the dynamism of the construction sector in the Gulf and Middle East region.”-TradeArabia News Service
