Outdoor Design and Build Show 2015 Brings Together Local and International Leaders to Showcase Industry Innovation
Dubai, UAE: Regional developers are increasingly placing sustainable, environmentally responsible use of outdoor spaces at the centre of their projects, industry experts said today.
The UAE construction market alone has a total value of USD 315 billion in announced and planned projects, driven by mega-projects such as Expo 2020 and by spending on social infrastructure.
Local and international leaders in the outdoor design and urban development market are attending the Outdoor Design and Build Show 2015, the Middle East’s only event focusing purely on design and build for all public and private spaces, which runs until tomorrow at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
The Outdoor Design and Build Show features major international brands and local industry leaders showcasing the most exciting and cutting-edge products and services in the outdoor design market. Major exhibitors at the three-day event include Tanseeq LLC, Gebal Group, Bee'ah, FX Luminaire and Elegance Shades & Décor amongst others.
“As the GCC market matures, sustainability and environmentally responsible development is going to become increasingly important. Developers and planners are grasping the need to incorporate and use outdoor space effectively and we expect to see this market grow substantially in the future,” said Rovan P. D’ Souza, General Manger, Trans Gulf Cement Products LLC. “Events like the Outdoor Design and Build Show help to spread awareness and understanding in the marketplace and drive the agenda for outdoor planning.”
Running alongside the Outdoor Design and Build Show, the Landscape 2020 briefing days is showcasing the most innovative urban projects, from concept through to completion, highlighting the work of regional municipalities, developers and architects.
