R+T Middle East draws good response
Dubai, March 28, 2010
R+T Middle East, a trade show dedicated to roller shutters, sun protection, doors and gates, has generated great interest among key players in the region, organisers of the event said.
R+T Middle East will be held from May 10-12 at the new halls of the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The event opens an direct access to world-class expertise and the most modern solutions in the areas of sun protection, access control systems, and doors and gates, said Deutsche Messe Dubai and Messe Stuttgart, the joint organisers of the event.
The enthusiastic response from trade exhibitors and buyers has been more pronounced in the GCC, where demand has remained strong because of the huge number of projects under construction, they said.
With an estimated $540 billion in construction expenditure from 2009 to 2011, the UAE maintains its position as a potential market for trade participants of R+T Middle East followed by Saudi Arabia ($397 billion), Kuwait ($123 billion) and Qatar ($99 billion).
Angela Schaschen, managing director, Deutsche Messe Dubai branch, said: "The GCC has been a very important growth market for sun protection, doors and gates, and access control systems because of the relatively large number of real estate projects being developed in the region. Establishing a dedicated trade event will be an important step towards strengthening the long-term business potential of the region as it will create more opportunities for technical innovation and will allow exhibitors and trade buyers to easily synergise and collaborate in various projects.
“Moreover, visitors will greatly benefit from the expanded line of offerings and support facilities as R+T Middle East will be held in conjunction with Domotex Middle East, the leading trade show for carpets and floor coverings in Mena region,” she said.
The complete range of products to be showcased at R+T Middle East include roller shutters and accessories, window shutters and accessories; windows and accessories; awnings; Venetian blinds, roller blinds and blinds; doors, gates and accessories; drive and control systems; electrical security equipment; business fittings and furnishings; and various technical literature. – TradeArabia News Service
