The Middle East Coatings Show 2015 took place in the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre, UAE, on 9 – 11 March 2015. With more than 4600 attendees from some 81 countries, the 22nd Middle East Coatings Show was a resounding success. His Excellency Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director General of Dubai Municipality, officially opened the event and toured the exhibition hall, speaking to exhibitors.
MECS 2015 once again saw a gathering of companies in Dubai to highlight their innovations, technology and solutions to the coatings industry. The stands showed off new and exciting technology, products and services, with some of the major players having built impressive and eye catching stands.
The Middle East Coatings Show Dubai is located firmly at the heart of the MENASA region, drawing large numbers of visitors from all around the gulf but also very meaningful numbers from India and Pakistan. Another note-worthy development this year was the return of significant visitor numbers from Iran, for the first time in several years.
Diana Butnariu, Sourcing & Marketing Manager, Orkila Group (exhibitor) was quoted as saying “We have to be in Dubai at MECS, as visitors are dedicated to come and see us here. This is our 10th consecutive year as an exhibitor. As the region is growing, we cannot afford not to be here to offer our services to customers, which include innovations and working with our partners. Our job is made that much easier with the professional and helpful organisation by the Coatings Group”
The exhibitor business presentations were a success with exhibitors and visitors taking full advantage of this free opportunity to discuss exhibitors’ products and services. The presentations were extremely well received throughout with each session completely full, leaving some visitors standing at the back.
