The five shows — ISH Kitchen & Bathroom, Lightstyle Gulf Light, Gardening & Outdoor Living, Hardware & Tools, and Hometech Middle East — present around 900 exhibitors drawn from all corners of the globe. The events target the fast growing property development, building trades, interior and landscape design sectors. According to Michael El Nayal, managing partner of exhibition organisers Epoc Messe Frankfurt, "the shows present just about everything you could need to create, decorate, equip and light all sorts of properties."

All of the events have grown substantially over the past year since they were last staged.

El Nayal said that "this was a consequence of the massive building boom resonating up and down the Gulf and across to the Red Sea.''
