Strong participation of international timber firms keen to set up regional presence ahead of ‘Expo 2020' build-up

Dubai, UAE, 07 January 2014: The UAE wood industry is expected to register cumulative growth of 126% over the next 7 years driven by the boom in the construction sector as part of the Expo 2020 build-up.

Organisers of the Dubai WoodShow 2014, which will be held in three halls of the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, said that this growth will be powered by rising investments in the real-estate and infrastructure, in addition to the other expansion projects across the country.

Organisers said the event has received overwhelming response from international timber firms which are looking to establish regional presence through Dubai to meet anticipated demand as part of the buildup for Expo 2020. The Dubai WoodShow, to be held from April 8 to 10, 2014, will have participation of over 500 companies from 40 countries, an increase of 7% compared to the previous edition.

The exhibition has been backed by more than 11 supporting associations including the UAE Society of Engineers, American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC), China National Forestry Machinery Association (CNFMA), French Timber, Quebec Wood Export Bureau and among others.
