Three Shows to Target Billion Dollar Middle East Markets

ABU DHABI, July 22 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

CMPi UAE announces the launch of two new major events to run alongside Working 

       Buildings Middle East, November 17-18, at ADNEC, Abu Dhabi, United Arab 



   Fit Out Middle East and Gulf Landscaping to provide combined networking platform for region's

trade professionals 


    Global exhibition organisers and foundation partners with ADNEC, CMPi UAE has announced

the launch of two new major exhibitions: Fit Out Middle East and Gulf Landscaping. These

events will take place simultaneously with Working Buildings Middle East. 

    Having the three exhibitions running concurrently means that architects, 

developers, facilities managers and other professionals will be able to meet 

potential suppliers and service providers to assist with their entire 

projects, from the final stages of construction through to the management of 

the building's lifecycle. With less and less time available for professionals 

to manage their workloads, their co-location means that visitors will be able 

to plan their time effectively. 

    CMPi UAE's Group Director Chris Fountain comments:  

    "Launching these events is a major part of our growth strategy in the region and compliments

the last year's successful launch of Working Buildings 

Middle East, the facilities management and building services event." 

    Fit-Out Middle East will cover the commercial, residential, retail and leisure sectors. Across the

GCC, the retail sector alone is expected to 

surpass over 100 million square feet by 2010, and there is currently over 24 

million square feet of office space under development in Dubai. 

    Gulf Landscaping will cover landscape architecture and outdoor design for 

macro individual developments as well as city development. Valued at around 10% of total

construction cost, the landscaping market in the region is 

estimated to be worth over $100 billion. 

    Fountain adds: 

    "The size of the Fit-Out and Landscape sectors demonstrates the importance 

they have in the development of the region. The co-location of these new 

events with Working Buildings Middle East mirrors this and provides the region 

with an all encompassing series of exhibitions that explores not only the way 

in which cities and developments will take shape but how they will function and operate as well." 

    Companies that are interested in finding out more about either show should
