Dubai, April 5, 2010
More than 150 exhibitors showcasing hundreds of the latest products and construction solutions, 600 delegates and industry professionals will feature at an upcoming construction event in Abu Dhabi.
To be held from May 24 to 26 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), the first Arabian Construction Week will incorporate three dedicated vertical trade exhibitions and two regional summits on sustainability, innovation and infrastructure.
The exhibition will cover over 8,000 sq m of space to host Future-Build Middle East, Green Building Middle East and Civil Engineering Middle East.
Over 5,000 industry leaders, developers, contractors, consultants, government bodies, financiers, urban and planners architects are expected to attend the events, according to a statement.
“The Arabian Construction Week is set to become the leading industry event in the region for companies seeking new business development and networking opportunities,” said Christopher Hudson, managing director of Mecom Forums and Clarion Events Partner, a leading event company with 10 offices in seven countries.
“Over 150 companies have already booked space at the event that is also anticipated to draw a significant number of trade visitors.”
Showcasing premium sustainable construction products, Green Building Middle East will display sustainable construction products from around the world and introduce key organisations and individuals shaping the industry in the region.
Hans-Joachim Rau, managing director of Peri, an international engineering company, said: “We will be showcasing our formwork products and presenting our subsidiaries which are located around the Middle East. We are looking forward to the event as we see a big potential in it.”
Future-Build Middle East is the first dedicated single-sourcing platform for the latest technology and innovative construction projects. In conjunction with regional developers and construction companies, the exhibition will focus on various sectors.
These expanding opportunities translate into a vast array of multi-billion dollar development projects, new cities, malls, hotels, business complexes, schools and hospitals, the statement said.
Civil Engineering Middle East will showcase the latest products and solutions for major infrastructure and transport projects that are rapidly transforming the landscape of the Middle East.
In addition to the three dedicated exhibitions, the Arabian Construction Week will host two summits: the Arabian World Construction Summit (AWCS) and the Green Building Middle East Summit.
The summits will witness international spokespersons analysing integral issues currently facing the regional construction industry.
“The construction industry in the Middle East continues to grow and still offers tremendous opportunities. I am confident that this event will serve as a platform for numerous deals spanning the region,” said Edmund O’Sullivan, chairman of Meed, organiser of the event. – TradeArabia News Service
