DUBAI: According to the organisers of Arabia Essen Welding and Cutting 2015, the specialised exhibition in products, services and technologies for manual and machine welding, iron and steel are among Dubai’s top 10 exported product categories, accounting for 3 percent of the total exports.
These figures were released in connection with the announcement of the second edition of Arabia Essen Welding & Cutting (AEWC), 2015 to be held from January 10th to 13th, 2015 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Satish Khanna, General Manager, Al Fajer Information and Services, co-organisers of AEWC 2015 with Messe Essen, said, “Markets heavily dependent on iron and steel in their productions represent great potential for Dubai exports. Many countries showed high potential for imports of iron and steel and Dubai is always looking for new markets to export these two metals.” Oliver P. Kuhrt, CEO, Messe Essen, added, “The UAE is regarded as the most important hub for trade between Europe and Asia. Welding technology is particularly in demand in Dubai, and huge investments in construction projects are dramatically driving this industry. The Arabia Essen Welding and Cutting exhibition offers the joining, cutting and surfacing industries of Europe, Africa and North America an ideal platform for making forays into this promising market.” Khanna stressed that the show will offer an ideal platform for companies to expand their operations in the booming Middle East market. He added: “AEWC is being held for the second time in the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. The exhibition, which will be bigger than the previous show, will showcase latest products, services and technologies for manual and machine welding.” Khanna said, “Arabia Essen Welding and Cutting 2015, the first-of-its-kind industry expo dedicated to welding machinery and technology, has attracted a range of UAE and Gulf based industrial companies.” The Arabia Essen Welding and Cutting is a strategic platform for introducing new technology. This show has enabled welding machinery vendors to introduce latest welding technology to the Gulf region.
AEWC seeks to leverage the reach and expertise of Al Fajer and Messe Essen to offer an ideal platform for companies to make inroads in the booming Middle East market.
