Dubai's 14th annual Index Exhibition will be held from September 22 to 26th at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre. Exhibitors from the AGCC make up nearly 20 per cent of the total specialists involved at this year's exhibition. The construction led growth of the regions burgeoning economy has resulted in a substantial increase in turnover for a now buoyant industry.

Companies from Oman and KSA have specifically targeted Index 2004 as their main opportunity to showcase their wares within the region but with the added advantage of showcasing to a truly international audience.

The trade in general is expected to gain in growth to around 30 per cent during the next five years with the continuous growth of the real estate sector and a host of new residential and free hold projects planned in the UAE alone.

At a regional level, KSA, Bahrain and Qatar have announced over $5 billion worth of real estate projects scheduled for the next two years, which are expected to further the demand for interior products and equipment in the GCC region.

Kim Willis of DMG World Media Dubai Ltd, said, ‘Exhibitor interest far outstrips the space we can offer and the show is fully sold out yet again, proving that the UAE and surrounding region is the interior industry hub of the whole Middle East and Africa.’
