The Fairmont Dubai named official hotel for Index 2002
Global trade show company, dmg Index Exhibitions, organizers of the annual Index interiors and furniture show held in Dubai, has signed up The Fairmont Dubai as the official Index 2002 hotel. Index 2002 will be held at the Dubai International Exhibition Center from October 2-6.
“The Fairmont Dubai's close proximity to the Dubai International Exhibition Center (DIEC) means trade shows, their exhibitors and visitors are a key target segment for us,” said Michael Kaile, vice president and general manager of The Fairmont Dubai. “As Index is the largest exhibition held at the DIEC, it is essential we build a working relationship with the organizers.”
One of Dubai's newest landmarks, The Fairmont Dubai opened at the beginning of this year. The pedestrian bridge across Sheikh Zayed Road, linking DIEC and the 394-room Fairmont hotel, appropriately named The Fairmont Walkway, is the first bridge of its kind linking both sides of the busy highway.
“With upwards of 1,000 exhibitors and in excess of 25,000 visitors, Index provides an unparalleled branding opportunity. The Fairmont Dubai is ideally situated offering not only excellent access to DIEC but acting as a reciprocal gateway to the vibrant Sheikh Zayed Road strips for exhibitors as well as local residents and tourists” concluded Kaile.
To date, exhibitors from 40 countries have contracted for Index 2002, which will have first-time representation from companies from Japan, Luxembourg and Morocco. Index 2002 will also incorporate the Arabshop retail and shop-fitting arena. — (menareport.com)
