Top construction firms attend Intermat ME
Abu Dhabi, January 26, 2014
Intermat Middle East expo ended on a high note with some of the world’s leading brands in construction machinery, materials and equipment industry taking part in the three-day event.
Organised by Comexposium in collaboration with Clarion Events Middle East, the show was held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
UAE Minister of Public Works Dr Abdullah Belhaif Al-Nuaimi inaugurated the show and later visited the different stalls while senior level representatives from DMA actively participated in the workshops held on the sidelines of the exhibition.
Maryvonne Lanoë, Intermat exhibition director, said significant investments in construction and infrastructure projects were being made continually in the region and Intermat aims to help visitors and partners capitalise on these investments.
The expo featured national pavilions from France, United Kingdom, Italy, Korea, the Netherlands, and several other countries.
Andrea Bonomi, the export area manager, Carmix – Metalgalante SPA, said: “Our participation at Intermat has been successful and fruitful. Even though the size of the exhibition is not huge, we are extremely satisfied, especially with the quality of the people that attended this exhibition."
"The exhibition and building was well organised and the people involved are very dedicated. I believe that we will attend again and keep going on this policy of facing and finding highly qualified people in the construction industry," he added.
Clarence Jacobson, the director, products & marketing, Oryx Simulations AB, said: "We are a Swedish company and decided to come here because it is a very interesting market – the UAE market and the entire Middle East market. What we have seen is that, even though the number of visitors has been small, we have had a number of quality leads to build relationships on."
"This exhibition is more about quality than quantity," he noted.
“Typically in our business it is not about quick wins, but more about business development process. We have identified and started initiating conversations with some potential corporations, however, it will require some work to pursue and finalise those outcomes,” explained Jacobson.-TradeArabia News Service
