50 top firms for Dubai carpet show
Dubai, December 24, 2012
A total of 50 companies from around the world including Iran, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan and India, will exhibit exclusive pieces of their premium carpet designs at an upcoming event in Dubai.
Organised by Dubai Customs, the Carpet and Art Oasis, the long - running event of the Dubai shopping Festival, will be inaugurated December 27 at Dubai World Trade Centre, one week before the launch of Dubai Shopping Festival 2013.
The Oasis, covering an area of 7,000 sq m, will showcase over 170,000 handmade pieces until January 14.
The exhibition of carpets, which started from the launch of DSF in 1996, has been a star attraction every year featuring great numbers of rich and rare hand-made carpets from around the world. The expo draws huge crowds with a penchant for fascinating hand-made works of art.
Abdulrahman Isa, head of the Carpet Oasis Organizing Committee, said that the committee has completed all the arrangements for this year after conducting several meetings with the participating traders to ensure a great response from visitors and that it satisfies everyone’s interests and meets different skills levels by showcasing different types and trends in the carpet world.
He expressed his thanks to Dubai Events and Promotion Establishment (Depe), the DSF organizers for their continued support to the Carpet Oasis, for promoting the events locally, regionally and internationally and for making arrangements to welcome and host visiting foreign media representatives to DSF, a practice that was started several years ago during DSF. – TradeArabia News Service
