Domotex set for May
Dubai, October 18, 2007
Domotex Middle East, the region’s leading carpet and floor coverings trade show, sees rapid growth ahead.
After two successful editions, Domotex Middle East (DOME) organisers have advanced by about a month the show dates for the next year.
Domotex 2008 will be held from May 25 to 27 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, which fits in perfectly in the regional business calendar, said Angela Schaschen, managing director of Deutsche Messe’s Dubai branch, organisers of the show.
“Three trade shows focused on interior products and design will be staged on the same dates and at the same venue. These shows, with the topics lighting, kitchen and bath products and garden and landscaping design, have attracted many interior designers and architects in the past years. This co-location will bring a significant higher number of interior designers and architects to all the shows,” she said.
The organisers expect a large demand for the available space and expect that the show will be sold out within a couple of months.
“A number of market leaders who were present at this year’s show have informed us already about the available locations and are enthusiastic to be present again at the leading trade show for carpets and floor coverings in the region” Schaschen said.
With 12 per cent more exhibitors (total 269) and 22 per cent more visitors (total 6,300) the 2007 show was a great success.
The growth of Domotex Middle East corresponds with the growth of Domotex Hannover, launched in 1985 and held annually in January since then, and the booming Domotexasia/Chinafloor, launched in 1999 held every year in March, she said.
