The civic body's participation in the fair is aimed at interacting with the industry players and keeping abreast of the latest technical development in landscape architecture, said Mohammed Hassan Al Ali, Head of Projects Design Section at the municipality's General Projects Department.

He added that a documentary film on landscaping in Dubai will be shown at the municipality's pavilion in the exhibition.

Some Dh843 million worth of landscaping projects are currently being undertaken by the municipality during 2006. These include as many as 29 public parks and 45 neighbourhood parks, which would add another 670 hectares of green area to Dubai's urban landscape. The civic body aims to cover as much as eight per cent of Dubai's urban area in the next four years.

The various facilities that will be built under the current plan involve the new Dubai Zoo in Mushrif, public parks in Al Ghusais and Port Said, and community parks in Al Barsha, Al Quoz, Al Hebab, and Al Towar areas.

Al Ali said the municipality had participated in the 2005 edition of the exhibition, which attracted many visitors and exhibitors from worldwide. This year's show is expected to attract a larger number of visitors and exhibitors due to the increasing number of construction projects and the heavy demand on landscape projects in Dubai.
