“The region is also incredibly diverse in its flooring needs, requirements range from practical, low cost, simple designs to high-end luxury products that might be used in palaces or five star hotels and visitors will find the full spectrum of products here at DOMOTEX Middle East.”
This year over 5,000 visitors from around 75 countries are expected to attend the show. It expects to attract flooring professionals, wholesalers and retailers, decision-makers from the construction industry, architects, interior designers, project planners developers and high net worth individual buyers.
