dmg events, a leading international events company, is launching Aluminium Expo, introducing a much-needed platform in the region for the growing industry.
One of the biggest producers in the world, the UAE is a global hotspot for aluminium, exporting US$5.63 billion worth of the metal in 2017 alone.
Aluminium Expo will debut at the Dubai World Trade Centre on 24-26 September 2019, offering visitors the chance to meet suppliers from across the entire aluminium value chain, whether they provide raw materials, finished products, or the machinery that makes them. It will feature thyssenkrupp with their aluminium extrusion range.
Aluminium products are a vital ingredient across the Middle East’s dynamic construction industry, which continues to demand innovative ideas and new products for its projects.
“The UAE is a well-known exporter of aluminium and with no existing platform to gather international and local professionals, it felt natural for us to launch an event for this industry,” said Chris Kilbee, Senior Vice President, Construction for dmg events.
“It is also a perfect fit for the entire industry value chain represented by our co-located events Windows, Doors & Facades and Gulf Glass. These complement Aluminium Expo well and make this event a complete destination for facades and exteriors.”
A host of networking and learning events will take place alongside the exhibition which allows attendees to hear from and discuss with experts in the industry. The show aims to provide a highly valuable platform for professionals in the aluminium sector by gathering the best minds and the most innovative products.
Up to 10,000 professionals are expected to attend Aluminium Expo, Gulf Glass and Windows Doors & Facades in September, as they research new products and expand their supplier networks.
The launch of Aluminium Expo is an addition to dmg events’ ever-expanding construction division that has already established successful shows in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and across Africa. dmg events’ successful record of delivering and geo adapting flagship events, such as The Big 5 will ensure the event delivers high-quality visitors and excellent business opportunities to all participants.
