The 'Dubai International Wood & Wood Machinery Show 2009', the Middle East's only industry exhibition of its kind, is set to host over 170 exhibitors from over 26 countries within its three day run, from April 21 to 23, 2009 at Central and East Hall of the Dubai Airport Expo, according to Strategic Marketing & Exhibitions, organizers of the show. Among the confirmed participants at the exhibition are members of the European Federation of Woodworking Machinery Manufacturers (EUMABOIS), which has pledged its support for the next three editions of the show. In addition to showcasing the world's best wood products and most advanced wood machineries, the event will also capitalise on the stability of demand in the regional market amidst the global economic downturn.
Since its inception in 2006, the 'Dubai International Wood & Wood Machinery Show' has emerged as the premier launchpad for the latest technologies in wood processing as well as new products from industry-leading companies. This year, visitors can expect a wide array of products from industry major players from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Portugal, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Syria, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States of America. Exhibitors from Brazil, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Ukraine and Russia are also set to participate.
"The 'Dubai International Wood & Wood Machinery Show 2009' is set to witness extensive participation from manufacturers, importers, exporters and buyers, having recorded significant and consistent annual growth in terms of exhibition area, and we are proud that the show continues to live up to the expectations of our exhibitors and visitors," said Saif Hashmath, Exhibition Director, Strategic Marketing & Exhibitions. "The extensive participation of global players in this year's show affirms the unanimous support of the biggest and most influential players in the wood and wood machineries market to this initiative. We are also looking forward to what this year's national pavilions are set to unveil, as they have become one of the much-anticipated elements of the show."
Highlighting wood and wood machineries originating from Europe, EUMABOIS has established a strong annual presence through its participating members at the 'Dubai International Wood & Wood Machinery Show 2009' by representing 13 national associations of major Europe-based manufacturers of machines and accessories for woodworking. With approximately 800 industrial companies engaged in the manufacturing of machines, plants and accessories for the primary and secondary processes associated with the organisation, its pavilion is proven to be one of the most comprehensive among the national participants. Additionally, EUMABOIS' participation is also focused on further driving the woodworking machineries exports of Germany, which has topped EUR 106 million in 2007, as well as the wood equipment shipments of Italy, which accounted for approximately 25 per cent of the global figure in 2007.
"The yearly participation of EUMABOIS underlines the role of the event in driving European products in the region, in line with its goals of promoting the technical and economic interests of the European industry of woodworking machinery. The organisation has greatly benefited from its consistent presence in this annual affair, which has witnessed massive movement of European-made wood products as well as machineries during the past shows. We would like to thank EUMABOIS for their expressed support, which speaks volumes of their confidence that the show will expand its reach and create even more opportunities for individual companies, regional associations and the industry in general," concluded Hashmath.
In addition to EUMABOIS, other global organisations that have confirmed their participation include the American Hardwood Export Council, Quebec Wood Export Bureau, Lithuanian Development Agency, Taiwan Woodworking Machinery Association, ACIMALL, AFEMMA, French Timber and Malaysian Timber Council. Furthermore, local organisations have also signed up as the event's trade supporters, such as the UAE Contractors' Association, Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI), and the Association of Professional Interior Designers (APID).
