100 firms for Abu Dhabi’s first wood show

Abu Dhabi, August 22, 2011

More than 100 companies from 20 countries will take part in the upcoming Abu Dhabi International Wood and Wood Machinery Show, the first-of-its-kind event in the UAE capital.

The show will be held across 4,000 sq m of exhibition space at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Centre (Adnec) from October 18 to 20.

The event will target distributors, suppliers, interior designers, furniture manufacturers, carpenters, wholesale traders & retailers, building material manufacturers, construction suppliers and project developers in Abu Dhabi and across the Middle East.

It will also feature specialized sections showcasing key products like clipboard and MDF, wood and timber flooring, veneer and surface treatments and furnishings.

Leading wood machinery companies from Germany, Italy, Spain, Taiwan and China have already confirmed their participation at the event and will showcase top-of-the-line products like extraction systems, sanding machines, coating, painting & drying machines, profile sanding, post-forming and other complementary machines.

“The vibrancy of Abu Dhabi’s construction industry is ably reflected in the continuing influx of major infrastructure projects. This development has also helped drive in an increased demand for more wood products and technologically-advanced wood machinery,” said Dawood Al Shezawi, CEO of event organisers Strategic Marketing and Exhibitions.

“We are looking to take advantage of this development with the launch of the Abu Dhabi WoodShow, which could not have come at a more strategic time. Exhibitors and visitors can look forward to an exciting three-day event as we have planned a strategic and very comprehensive programme.”

“We are aiming to live up to our commitment of positioning the Abu Dhabi WoodShow as a prime venue for buyers and sellers to meet and showcase the latest in wood machinery technology,” he added.

The Abu Dhabi WoodShow is part of a series of wood and wood machinery exhibitions, which includes the Cairo WoodShow 2011 and ‘Dubai WoodShow 2012, which are all being organized by Strategic Marketing.

“So far, we have already received an overwhelming response to our decision to mount a wood and woodworking machinery exhibition in the UAE capital,” said Al Shezawi.

“The event complements Abu Dhabi’s emergence as a market with immense potential and falls in line with the strategic Abu Dhabi Vision 2030, which aims to package the emirate as a totally sustainable and highly urbanized growth area.”

“With this in mind, Abu Dhabi WoodShow not only sets out to showcase the latest in wood products, wood machinery and related technology but also serves as a prime venue where visitors can learn more about the wood industry and its growing potential as an essential building material. The Gulf region is expected to widely benefit from this strategic event and can help drive in more growth for the wood industry,” concluded Al Shezawi. – TradeArabia News Service
