- PRESS RELEASE
Hundreds of outdoor landscaping and gardening specialists will be out to take advantage of a new event being launched in Dubai this year, as laws in 2013 get set to revolutionise the make-up of outdoor spaces across the GCC.
Partnered with the Dubai Municipality, the inaugural edition of Outdoor Design Build & Supply also comes as new legislation in the UAE and GCC is expected to pass in 2013, which will require a minimum of 25% 'green space' or 'outdoor landscaping' across all residential and commercial projects in the region.
Among the headline exhibitors showcasing new products at the show include the locally based Bin Sabt Sports & Leisure, which will launch a complete range of outdoor sports and leisure products.
Rohit Anand, Managing Director of Bin Sabt Sports & Leisure, said, "We have executed more than 1,000 projects in the UAE and surrounding countries and with outdoor spaces in the region continuing to grow, our participation at the Outdoor Design Build & Supply will enhance our visibility in a very niche market."
"We are aware that regional government municipalities, contractors and relevant entities will all be participating at the show, and our presence will enhance the existing relationship we have with them, whilst also demonstrating our commitment to the landscaping industry in this region," Rohit added.
The UK based Dura Composites, meanwhile, will prepare to display its brand new range of timber composite Dura Cladding at Outdoor Design Build & Supply, along with its regular portfolio of outdoor products. The eco-friendly timber composite products are made from 87% recycled materials, and are the first composite product to be 100% certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
Paul Fletcher, Key Account Manager in the Middle East for Dura Composites said that not only are its products more eco-friendly, but are more durable than traditional hard-wood and soft-wood products, making them perfect for the harsh outdoor desert environments in the region.
"Our full line-up of Dura Composites look and feel like natural wood, and their unique formula provides lightweight yet durable cladding or decking that will not splinter, warp, rot or fade throughout their 25 years life expectancy," said Fletcher.
"The Outdoor Design Build & Supply show will be a perfect platform for us to demonstrate how great our products look, and how they can help transform future outdoor projects in the region," he added.
Other exhibitors at Outdoor Design Build & Supply launching new products include Bluestream Environmental Technology, and Ithara Group, while Fitco Irrigation, Greenworks, The Inout Company, Orient Irrigation, Terraverde, Timberwolf, and Toscana Landscaping are among the high-profile exhibitors taking part.
In addition to the Dubai Municipality as a strategic partner, Outdoor Design Build & Supply is supported by Municipality of Abu Dhabi City and Al Ain Municipality. The brand new show will address the use of outdoor space in construction projects, providing support to developers, landscape architects and designers creating outdoor spaces.
Visitors to Outdoor Design Build & Supply will include government and urban planning officials, corporate project managers and horticulture experts who will give exhibitors the opportunity to strengthen existing relationships while putting them in front of a targeted market.
Outdoor Design Build & Supply is supported by the largest buyers of outdoor products and services.
