Home Show 2013 ends on a successful note

The curtains came down on yet another successful edition of The Home Show that had exhibitors and visitors alike applauding the high standard of the event, as well as its role in energizing Oman’s home building and interiors industry.

As many as 105 exhibitors from more than 10 countries showcased their products and services from 9 to 11 December, 2013. Portugal’s leading housing products and services brand, Associação Home, showcased an array of exciting offerings from 17 Portuguese companies.

The Home Show also featured a B2B Italian trade delegation comprising product exporters, manufacturers, suppliers, dealers and service providers who were sourcing local partners and distributors.

Organised by Global Exhibitions and Conferences LLC (GEC), and powered by Epoc Messe Frankfurt, the signature trade fair featured a comprehensive mix of products and services encompassing all aspects of the property development, real estate, homebuilding, interiors, furnishing and home ownership space.

“The groundswell of interest in the Home Show encompassing all segments of the home ownership and property development market is evidence of the robust appeal of this annual trade show.” said H.E. Eng. Saif bin Amur bin Sulaiman Al Shaqsi, Undersecretary Ministry of Housing.

Contractors, consultants, architects and interior designers were among a total of 6,004 industry professionals who visited the venue – Oman International Exhibition Centre – during the three-day event. Footfalls involving homeowners, homebuilders, manufacturers, property investors and developers, also contributed to the impressive turnout.

Indeed, gratified by the overwhelmingly positive outcome of recently concluded show, many exhibitors have already confirmed their participation during next year’s edition which takes places from 27 to 29 October 2014, while others are mulling an expanded presence.

“Impressed with the overall appeal of the show and the quality of visitors, Berger Paints has already decided to ramp up its presence at the 2014 Home Show exhibition,” said P. K. Raj, General Manager, Berger Paints.

“Home Show was an excellent platform to meet our existing clients as well as develop new ones. The exhibition gave us a great opportunity to present our Italian kitchens and bathrooms. We are grateful to the organizers for a good and professional Home Show 2013,” said Rashid Al Kindi, Chairman, Panorama Investments LLC – Vabene Oman.
