Domotex Middle East 2011 is taking advantage of the region’s construction spend by showcasing flooring ranges from all over the world.
“The Middle East remains a key market for floor covering providers around the globe. The region’s construction industry is due to deliver projects worth US$500 billion by 2015, providing a huge opportunity for the floor covering sector,” said Angela Schaschen, managing director, Deutsche Messe Dubai Branch, the organiser of DOMOTEX Middle East.
“We are also seeing an increase in government sponsored infrastructure projects, for example in Saudi Arabia over $13 billion of construction contracts have been awarded in the Kingdom in Q1 2011 alone, according to the NCB (National Commercial Bank) Construction Contracts Index First Quarter 2011.
“The construction sector is expected to continue its impressive growth as the Saudi government set forth plans to develop the Kingdom’s infrastructure in the 2011 budget,” she added.
