Gulf Glass 2009

Post Time:Aug 01,2008Classify:Industry NewsView:397

We´re delighted to announce that the 3rd Gulf Glass Exhibition will take place in its usual springtime timeslot from 16-18 March 2009

It will again take place at the excellent ExpoCentre Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates.

Gulf Glass is the only truly dedicated and independent show for glass technology and processing in the region and represents continuity, quality and your link to the local business – one demonstrating massive growth and fantastic further potential.

If the past two years have seen a real ramping up in the fortunes of glass industries in the area, then next year will be a quantum leap by all predictions.

Sharjah, apart from providing all the modern facilities that an international exhibition such as ours demands, lies at the heart of all that is positive and dynamic in the UAE’s development. The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce & Industry has just this week outlined intensified efforts to boost economic growth, brokering high profile public-private partnerships and encouraging entrepreneurship throughout Sharjah, which has rapidly emerged as the key contributor.

Sharjah accounts for half of all UAE industrial investment and the latest policy shows its explicit ambition to ensure that the phenomenal growth being experienced by the emirate is properly directed and sustainable.

GCC, MENA and wider international business certainly realise the strength and the scope here, which of course benefits our many exhibitors at Gulf Glass. Hotel occupancy, it was announced this week, has soared 7 points to 83% during the last six months, during which time Sharjah has welcomed over 760,000 guests.

The latest figures to be released also demonstrate why Gulf Glass continues to thrive in Sharjah – revenues from trade with other GCC countries grew in just one year by a phenomenal 84.6%, from AED 2.6 billion in 2006 to AED 4.8 billion in 2007.

All in all, it means that once again Gulf Glass is ideally placed to be the showcase in the right place, at the right time, with all the right trade links. This is clearly why supply and technology leaders from around the glass world seek to stake their claim here, with over half the exhibition space having been earmarked already.
