Reed launches BMP at Building Futures show
Dubai, February 25, 2008
Reed Exhibitions Middle East, organisers of Building Futures Gulf by Batimat, has launched Business Meeting Programme (BMP) to optimise business opportunities at the four-day trade show.
The show focuses on the Middle East’s building and construction industry. The programme enables visitors to the show to log on to the event website and set up meetings with exhibitors.
Building Futures Gulf by Batimat, the first regional edition of the Batimat international exhibition, is being held in Abu Dhabi from April 20 to 23, 2008, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
Prospective visitors who are decision-makers on construction projects and interested in a specific product or service can log onto www.buildingfuturesgulf.com, browse through the exhibitor list and review solutions on offer and propose a time for a meeting with a specific exhibitor at the show, said an official spokesman.
The online date and time management system will process the request and generate a mutually convenient meeting schedule for the exhibitor and visitor.
“We are pleased to introduce in the region the Business Meeting Programme – an innovation that has met with impressive success at our shows globally. The BMP was first introduced in Europe a few years ago and has proven to be a very useful tool, said president of Reed Exhibition Middle East Frederic Theux.
“Visitors can optimise their time at the show while exhibitors are able to maximise their return on investment from at our events. The BMP ensures that Reed Exhibitions as the organiser of the show is able to play a role in matching offer and demand prior to commencement of our events,” he added.
The four shows under the Building Futures Gulf by Batimat umbrella target architects and designers, consultants, engineers, property developers, material distributors, contractors and manufacturers plus contract owners.
The umbrella event aimed at the Middle East’s booming building construction market will consist of four shows devoted to high performance buildings; Structure Gulf (structural products and components), Envelope Gulf (Façade systems and joinery), Intelligent Building Gulf (Intelligent Building solutions and Energy performance) and HVAC Gulf (Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning).
The services area at the show will include a dedicated area for architects. Reed Exhibitions is partnering with the International Union of Architects (UIA) to host the show.
Besides the Business Meeting Programme, presentations and seminars focusing on each of the four themes of the exhibition will be organised with the participation of experts.
The International Union of Architects (UIA) will organise “The International Architects Conference”, in association with Reed Exhibitions. The Conference will focus on fair practices in the building sector and serve as a discussion platform for architects, contractors, owners and manufacturers. – TradeArabia News Service
