Next year’s event will be the sixth in the biennial series, and follows on from the largest and most successful event to be held which took place in September last year.With over 2,300 visitors recorded in the three days of the 2013 show, the show maintained a high level of discussions over the 3 day period, with a material impact on exhibitor business in the region as a result.
“For next year we are expanding the floorspace available, and also introducing a conference area dedicated to the glass community” says David Jones, Marketing Director.
With Dubai set to host the World Expo in 2020, all indications are that construction and the demand for glass as a result are set to soar in the next five years, meaning that there has never been a better time to be part of the Gulf Glass exhibitor community.
What is more, an increased focus on food packaging and pharmaceutical distribution are meaning that container glass is also seeing a surge in demand, with exports becoming more important to other countries in the region and parts of East and Southern Africa.
