The Office Expo to join INDEX in May 2013

Luce - Okamura

dmg  ::  events  has  announced  that  its  two  flagship  interior shows INDEX  International  Design  Exhibition  and  The  Office  Exhibition will  come  together  in  2013  to  create  an  ‘Interiors  Super  Show’ for  the  Middle  East  &  North  Africa.

The  decision  to  bring  these  two    brands  together  was  taken  after   months  of  research  into  the  changing  landscape  of  the  global  interiors  market,  and  to  further  support  the  continuing  evolution  of   INDEX .

“I  am  delighted  that  The  Office  Exhibition  will  become  part  of  the  INDEX  International  Design  Exhibition  next  year,” said Naomi  Barton, event  director, INDEX.

“The  Office  Exhibition  has  already  cemented  its  place  within  the  Middle  East  commercial  design  industry,  but  the  synergy  with  INDEX  makes  perfect  strategic  sense,  and  we  look  forward  to  driving  the  show  forward.

“By  adding  new  profiles,  developing  the  show  and  attaching  the  show  to  a  larger  regional  design  show,  The  Office  Exhibition  can  only  benefit  and  grow  organically  to  become  the  region’s  premier  commercial  design  event”.

As  the  total  spend  on  interior  design  in  the  GCC  is  expected  to  top  US$56  billion  in  2012,  more  and  more  manufacturers  and  suppliers  are  expanding  and  diversifying  their  range  of  products  and  services  to  target  the  entire  spectrum  of  interiors  fit‐out  and  refurbishment  projects.

Also, more architect  and  design  companies  are  expanding  their  consultancy  capabilities  to cross  the  boundaries  between  commercial,  residential,  hospitality  and  retail  design   to  chase lucrative  fit‐out  projects  across  the  region.
