Scottish products to be showcased at top expo
Manama, January 19, 2011
Scottish interiors products of every shape, colour and style will be showcased in the Northern Gulf for the first time in April at gulfINTERIORS Exhibition, adding to the increasing value that the interiors sector is giving to the event.
Scottish Development International (SDI), a government joint venture which helps promote Scottish companies overseas, has confirmed that leading Scottish interiors brands will take part in gulfINTERIORS, to be held from April 26 to 28 at Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre (BIEC).
Scottish exhibitors at gulfINTERIORS will include Holland & Sherry, Sekers, China Ocean and Begg Scotland, in addition to leather specialists Andrew Muirhead & Son.
Organised by Bahrain-based Hilal Conferences & Exhibitions (HCE), gulfINTERIORS is the Northern Gulf region's only dedicated exhibition for interiors, design and furniture.
It enjoyed a highly successful debut in 2010.
'We are excited to be participating at gulfINTERIORS, as we feel this is the ideal show for us,' said SDI senior executive Fiona Maclachlan.
'Scottish textiles manufacturers have an unrivalled reputation for providing quality products for customers around the world.
'Stimulated by Scotland's rich heritage and culture, companies produce everything from cutting-edge design for interiors to cashmere, leather and luxury lifestyle products.
'Our aim is to be the first choice for buyers,' she added.
'We are delighted to welcome SDI to gulfINTERIORS for the first time,' said organisers HCE managing director Jubran Abdulrahman.
'Showcasing high calibre Scottish textile brands will demonstrate that Scotland has much more to offer than the stereotypical tartan.
'The status of gulfINTERIORS is growing as an important show for companies involved in the interiors business.
'We look forward to working with SDI to ensure the show meets their objectives and that they achieve maximum value from participation, in what we hope is the beginning of a long-term partnership.'
