United Arab Emirates, 4th July 2007- dmg world media, organisers of InRetail and the Office Exhibition, have announced significant increases in visitor numbers for the shows this year, both of which were held at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre from 3rd to 5th June.
The announcement may come as no surprise when both shows represent industries that are increasingly considered at the forefront of shaping today’s Middle Eastern economies.
At a time when the opening of a new state-of-the-art shopping mall seems the norm rather than the exception, InRetail Exhibition brings together the leading professionals from every segment of the retail industry, from retail design, shopfitting and visual merchandising, to the most recent state-of-the-art in-store technologies, and the latest developments in customer service, marketing and logistics.
And with the region’s current demand for quality new office space, the Office Exhibition also, offers a comprehensive range of office systems, including high-end furnishings, interior design, and storage systems.
The visitor figures also suggest that the level of international interest is increasing at a similar rate to both UAE and GCC markets. InRetail 2007 saw visitor increases of 79% for UAE residents, 69% for the GCC, and 68% for international visitors. With similar consistency, the Office Exhibition saw visitor growth of 23%, 20% and 21% respectively.
So too do the offerings of exhibitors significantly increase in sophistication from year to year, observes Paula Al Chami from dmg world media.
This is probably one of the most interesting aspects of the shows – how styles and technologies move on so drastically in the space of just one year, comments Paula. And this is also the ideal time for many exhibitors. More than ever before, companies in the region are really open to learning how they can use the latest innovations and technologies to improve their business.
Next year’s exhibitions are scheduled for 8th – 10th June 2008 for InRetail and 4th â€“ 6th February 2008 for The Office Exhibition at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.
