Deutsche Messe Dubai and Messe Stuttgart, the joint organisers of R+T Middle East, the only specialized trade show dedicated to roller shutters, sun protection, doors and gates in the MENA region, have revealed that the trade event has generated great interest among key players in the region's construction sector as it opens an unprecedented direct access to world-class expertise and the most modern solutions in the critical areas of sun protection, access control systems, and doors and gates. Deutsche Messe Dubai further disclosed that the enthusiastic response from trade exhibitors and buyers has been more pronounced in the GCC, where demand has remained strong because of the huge number of projects under construction across Gulf countries.
With an estimated USD 540 billion in construction expenditure from 2009 to 2011, the UAE maintains its position as a potential market for trade participants of R+T Middle East followed by Saudi Arabia (USD 397 billion), Kuwait (USD123 billion) and Qatar (USD99 billion). R+T Middle East will be held from 10-12 May 2010 at the new halls of the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, providing excellent trade opportunities and support services for construction companies, engineering firms, real estate developers and several other trade exhibitors and visitors.
Angela Schaschen, Managing Director, Deutsche Messe Dubai Branch, said: "The GCC has been a very important growth market for sun protection, doors and gates, and access control systems because of the relatively large number of real estate projects being developed in the region. Establishing a dedicated trade event will be an important step towards strengthening the long-term business potential of the region as it will create more opportunities for technical innovation and will allow exhibitors and trade buyers to easily synergise and collaborate in various projects. Moreover, visitors will greatly benefit from the expanded line of offerings and support facilities as R+T Middle East will be held in conjunction with DOMOTEX Middle East, the leading trade show for carpets and floor coverings in MENA region.”
The GCC has emerged as a huge market for automatic, garage and industrial doors with the steady performance of the regional economy and improving standards of living. By the end of 2010, the world demand for automatic and electric doors is poised to exceed 100,000,000, with the GCC expected to account for a significant percentage in view of the massive development projects being undertaken in the region.
The range of sun protection products to be showcased at the event include innovative control systems for indoor and outdoor sun protection, as well as doors and gates that operate more efficiently because of clever sensor technology, feature superior material and deliver improved cost savings for indoor temperature regulation. Innovative access control systems and high-technology doors and gates will continue to be in great demand with the growing number of security-sensitive projects being developed such as airports, industrial facilities, multi-story car parks, premium residences, office buildings and shopping centres.
The complete range of products to be showcased at R+T Middle East include roller shutters and accessories, window shutters and accessories; windows and accessories; awnings; Venetian blinds, roller blinds and blinds; doors, gates and accessories; drive and control systems; electrical security equipment; business fittings and furnishings; and various technical literature.
R+T Middle East is jointly organised by Deutsche Messe Dubai Branch and Messe Stuttgart. It is under the technical and conceptual sponsorship of the Federal Association for Manufacturers of Roller shutters and Sun protection (Bundesverband Rollladen + Sonnenschutz e.V.) and the National Federation of Door and Gate Manufacturers (BVT - Verband Tore).
