14 th Dubai WoodShow gears up to link opportunities for wood and woodworking machinery industry ahead of Expo 2020 Dubai0
Massive construction in the region to impact surge in demand for wood and machinery to reach $2.4t.
Dubai WoodShow anticipates at least 10,000 specialized professionals as it holds its fourteenth edition on 12-14 March 2019 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Dubai WoodShow is the world’s leading platform for wood and woodworking machinery where year on year, more business opportunities are linked between and among stakeholders.
This year, Dubai WoodShow braces itself as the surge in demand in wood and woodworking machinery is expected to reach $2.4 trillion ahead of Expo 2020 Dubai. This would be ideal for exhibiting companies, with significant advantage to first time exhibitors, as the gateway for global opportunities will be opened during the course of three days. To bridge this gap in supply and high demand, Dubai WoodShow is poised to encourage suppliers from across continents to meet and secure business with buyers in one conducive environment dedicated to the needs and demands of the industry.
Held annually, Dubai WoodShow feature wood and woodworking machinery products and related brands including hardwood and softwood, woodworking machineries and tools, flooring, plywood, veneer, MDF, laminates, boards, wood supplies, furnishings and fittings, paints, adhesives, and glues. Last year’s high points include millions of dollar worth of secured deals made mostly through its country pavilion feature availed by USA (American Hardwood Export Council), China, Italy, Russia (Russian Timber Industry), Canada (Quebec Wood Expert Bureau), Finland, and Turkey (Woodworking Machinery and Side Industries Businessmen Association or AIMSAD).
The unique integrity of Dubai WoodShow, as in all other WoodShow series which are being held in other major cities, is its unshakeable commitment to improve and sustain the growth of the wood industry and consequently its related sectors. Held annually, Dubai WoodShow focuses beyond ensuring that sales and deals are made, but also on safeguarding against rapid changes and developments by preparing industry readiness.
One fine area where Dubai WoodShow has been found highly competent is in linking opportunities between and among stakeholders. In every staging of Dubai WoodShow, millions of deals are made by linking existing demands with quality supply at competitive rates. Housed under one roof, a number of B2B meetings are conducted during the event where decision-makers themselves discuss and speedily arrive at a mutually beneficial business agreement.
Industry challenges would be the second core area that Dubai WoodShow has shown its prowess. Through its global presence and wide network of industry players, Dubai WoodShow gathers insights which are then analysed and where solutions are drafted within the operational capacity of the event. These solutions are offered to industry players as the event’s gesture of commitment to the industry. Such a case would be the assessment of governing policies that would enable industry growth and where protection and preservation of forestry is not compromised.
Where low operational capacity is of utmost concern, Dubai WoodShow visitors can get the first- hand experience on how technological solutions can work to their advantage. As many businesses across sectors realize the advantage of disruptive technologies to their brand or product, so should specialized industry such as wood and woodworking machinery as they can enjoy a leap forward in terms of increased productivity and efficiency utilizing technological solutions offered at the event.
Awareness of their competitive advantage, or lack thereof, is realized during one exclusive event where local, regional, and international competitors are present under one roof. The pulse of the buyers is felt thus equipping an exhibitor to review its sales and marketing scheme and attract their share of the market, thereby increasing their business bottom line.
Top nationalities at Dubai WoodShow include visitors from the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, India, Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait, Algeria, Egypt, and Lebanon, along with event partners European Committee of Woodworking Machinery Manufacturers (EUMABOIS), Italian Woodworking Machinery and Tools Manufacturers’ Association (ACIMALL), AFEMMA- a national non-profit association representing woodworking equipment companies in Spain, AIMSAD, American Hardwood Export Council, Quebec Wood Export Bureau, Lunjiao Woodworking Machinery Association, and Association Technique Internationale des Bois Tropicaux (ATIBT).
