We now expect to have perhaps as many as 240 companies exhibiting at this year’s event, more than doubling previous outings, with a fantastic spread of countries on show”.
In fact, with around 20 countries represented, Gulf Glass is potentially one of the most international exhibitions in the industry. What is more, rather than locating itself in an increasingly less important location, it has the attraction of being at the centre of the action; not just locally, but globally.
“The great thing is that Gulf Glass, whilst being in the middle of a region with high potential, is also being seen as a truly neutral venue, providing equal status to all countries who wish to demonstrate their abilities and technologies to what is a global market” Burston adds.
“This year’s Gulf Glass will be the largest yet, and with our permanent home now fixed in Dubai, the potential for the event to continue growing in the future, not just from a MENA perspective, but as an international meeting place in the off-year from the Glasstec event in Duesseldorf” he adds.
