Five new countries for Pool & Spa expo
Dubai, April 16, 2008
Five new countries are participating in the Middle East Pool & Spa Exhibition at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The three-day event organised by Reed Exhibitions will conclude today.
The new participants come from Germany, Italy, France, the UK, and Spain.
The participation of those countries, being some of the leading industrial countries, adds value to the high-calibre profile of this exhibition, and promises to bring the latest in technology and quality of products than the past two editions, said an official spokesman.
The event was inaugurated by UAE Minister of Health Humaid Al Qutami Nael Attallah.
“With more than $25 billion worth of trade in pools, spa, recreation centre equipment and accessories every year, the Middle East is one of the fastest growing markets in the world in this industry,” said Attallah.
The idea of the Middle East Pool & Spa Exhibition started in 2003. A feasibility study was made, and it was found that the benefits for the UAE and the GCC of this exhibition were great given the real estate and tourism boom in the region.
At the time, no such exhibition catering to the needs of those specific industries existed. The findings were very encouraging, as the benefits were for both the exhibitors and the users of swimming pools, such as hotels, villa owners, real estate agents, commercial tower owners, tourism project supervisors, architecture and design companies, and municipalities.
The third Middle East Pool & Spa Exhibition is showcasing everything related to the industry, including, family pool, private pool, pool surrounding equipment, swimming pool equipment, anti slip system, pool pumping and installation, pool cleaning equipment and materials, changing room lockers, spa equipment, health centre facilities, hot tubes, steam rooms, sauna rooms, Turkish Hammam, Water Fountains, Swim Wear, and other related materials and services. – TradeArabia News Service
