The Only Established show of its kind in the Middle East, Asia and Europe
The Dubai International Wood & Wood Machinery Show, the Middle East’s only specialized industry exhibition of its kind, kick off its 2014 edition, with over 45% growth in confirmed booking compared to same period of last edition during its three-day run from April 8 to 10, 2014 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center. The expected growth in the international exhibitor count is in line with the rising demand for hardwood lumber in the region, with import figures projected to reach an estimated USD 900 million in 2013. This increase has prompted Strategic Marketing & Exhibitions, the event organizer, to expand the event’s gross area, which will cover 13,428 sq. meters and feature different halls for timber, hardwood, softwood, plywood and hardboards, wood, flooring, treatment products, spraying equipment and raw wood materials and outdoor furniture. As well as a range of wood machineries including boring and combining machines, blades and knives, drying kiln equipment, plywood manufacturing machinery and dust control equipment are also exhibited. More specialized Exhibitors are expected to join the show as they observed and recognized the show as a strategic platform from which to expand their market share.
Dubai Woodshow Exhibition is the premium regional landmark event for forestry & wood industry trade. For the past nine years, the event has propelled Dubai at the forefront of the consolidation of West – East wood trade. The event has established and gained an undisputed reputation as the exclusive platforms where international wood product importers are offered an opportunity create a decisive response to the regional market current and future demands.
The Show has brought together major players in the wood industry during its 9-years run. In April 2014, exhibitors from more than 45 countries will showcase their latest products and innovations, looking to establish strong business partnerships and benefit from the inflow of new techniques and technology in the manufacture of wood products and machinery.
With over 700 million USD in onsite transactions since its inception, the Dubai WoodShow became a must-attend event for wood professionals who are seeking to expand their market shares.
Companies attending Dubai WoodShow in 2014 position themselves at the leading edges of the industry and enter a healthy market place dominated by small and medium business owners. As the number of competitors serving the regional wood market keeps growing: VAS (versatility, adaptability & scalability) has emerged as the ultimate 3-point strategy for long-term success.
The event enables executives from the sales-side to meet with local wood industry stakeholders, discuss their business expectations and present tactical options that will match or anticipate their demands. In joining Dubai WoodShow, participants get firsthand information and realistic insights about the region’s transaction volume and market trends and actual demands.
“Given the new formula of the event that includes a conference, workshop and B2B meetings, the show allows businesses to communicate on their companies’ operational strategy, voice their day-to-day business management concerns”.
Said Dawood Al Shezawi, CEO of Strategic Marketing and Exhibitions.
