International exhibitions firm dmg events, has expanded its event portfolio with the launch of new trade show Windows, Doors and Façades Event, to be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre next year.
The new event will leverage the strong demand for the niche market driven by the Middle East’s “burgeoning construction sector”, which is expected to grow by around seven per cent annually for the period 2016-2020, according to the organiser.
Windows, Doors and Façades Event will be held from 18 to 20 September 2016.
Nathan Waugh, portfolio director – construction division, dmg events, said the team decided to launch Windows, Doors and Façades Event as an independent event as it had “great potential for growth” when The Big 5 Dubai 2014 had 2,000sqm of exhibition space dedicated to the sector.
“The need for windows and doors will continue to remain high in the region with the construction of new buildings and repair and renovation of existing ones. We are confident that Windows, Doors and Façades Event 2016 will fill a gap in the market by catering to the regional demand for more modern and innovative concepts in the segment,” he added.
“The time is right to launch a dedicated event in the form of Windows, Doors and Façades Event 2016 to tap the remarkable potential of this segment by throwing the spotlight on all product sectors within the industry, including accessories, machinery and components.”
The 2016 event will target professionals from the building and construction sector, including architects and interior designers; builders and developers; dealers and distributors; door, façade and window contractors; glass and metal contractors; door, gate and window manufacturers; fabricators; facility managers; façade consultants; investors; and wholesalers.
