The Office Exhibition success
Dubai, February 11, 2010
A variety of Middle East product launches took place at the ninth Office Exhibition, a leading showcase for the high-end products, technology and services, which closed today (February 11) after a successful three-day run.
The HP-sponsored event which ran at Dubai World Trade Centre featured over 250 companies from 25 countries.
The quality of visitors at the show was extremely high, with senior architects, designers, purchasing managers and IT specialists from across the GCC region attending, and an increase in visitors from outside the UAE, said a statement.
A number of innovative office products made their Middle East debut at the exhibition.
Total Office’s Teknion Powermat is a revolutionary way to charge up to three devices wirelessly at the same time from a single source, eliminating the need for a number of different chargers.
Total Office has received hundreds of enquiries about Powermat following its launch and is confident that sales within the region will catch on quickly.
The award-winning Knoll Generation chair was launched by Al Reyami, the UAE exclusive distributor. This unique chair adheres to “holistic ergonomics”, whereby the chair provides support no matter how the person sits.
Allsteel, in addition to launching a number of new products, signed a partnership with local company Human Space, making them a newly appointed distributor in Dubai.
Another major exhibitor, Boss Design, won three awards at The Office Awards ceremony for their Pegasus table, Kruze lounge chair and Lily Task chair, which were being launched in the Middle East.
H20 Concepts also announced the opening of their new Dubai showroom later this year, as well as signing a deal to distribute Izzy+ products.
“Overall, The Office Exhibition was a great success, and the show features proved to be a hit. The first ever Office Awards provided winning companies with a strong endorsement for their products, which we know will impact positively on their business,” said Sinead Bridgett, show director, The Office Exhibition.
“We are delighted with the feedback from exhibitors, who have all commented on the very high quality of visitors from the UAE and wider GCC region.”
“A number of innovative and exciting products made their Middle East debut at the show, and the resulting business should be significant. The positive feedback has been supported by the level of rebookings and the fact that the demand for space next year has increased,” Bridgett concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
