Malaysia plans largest pavilion at CityBuild Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi, November 14, 2010
The Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade) will host the largest international pavilion at CityBuild Abu Dhabi, the UAE capital’s premier business to business exhibition for the building and construction industry.
Matrade, which will take 1000 sq m space at the show, is eager to further boost relations with Abu Dhabi by building on Malaysia’s established position as a significant supplier of material products and services into the UAE market and across the GCC, said a statement.
Taking place from April 17-20, 2011 at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, the second edition of CityBuild Abu Dhabi, which is already three times larger than the inaugural event in 2010, will attract more than 10,000 suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and importers of products used in the construction of real estate and infrastructure projects, together with buyers and industry wide trade professionals.
Co-located alongside the 5th edition of Cityscape Abu Dhabi, the event will spotlight the resilience of the construction industry in the UAE where there are still 1,600 projects worth over $560 billion in execution or about to begin construction, the statement said.
Last year the combination of the two exhibitions brought together more than 34,000 visitors under one roof.
“Malaysia is looking to foster new trade links, convince developers, city planners and architects that its products offer quality and an excellent ROI, and is confident that CityBuild will elevate the country’s profile, and that of its product and service industry, ” said Graham Wood, group director of IIR Middle East, organisers of CityBuild Abu Dhabi.
Dato’ Dzulkifli, senior trade commissioner, Matrade, said: “We are delighted to have confirmed our co-location with CityBuild and Cityscape Abu Dhabi. This crucial decision was an easy one, despite being approached by other construction events in Abu Dhabi.
“We wanted the security of working with an event that has four years history in the market, officially audited and guaranteed visitor numbers, not to mention the full support of the Abu Dhabi Government, UPC, Masdar and DMA. This is a wonderful opportunity to build relations between Malaysia and Abu Dhabi and we are excited about the future prospects this venture could lead to.” – TradeArabia News Service
