The 29th edition of the main trade fair involving the entire GCC design community will take place from 17th to 19th September at the Dubai World Trade Centre, as part of the new edition of Middle East Design and Hospitality Week 2019.
The highlight of the design community's calendar, the event will host over 500 exhibitors hoping to benefit from the continued growth of the interior design and exhibition sector.
This growth is confirmed by the ever-increasing number of residential and hotel projects in 2019, in particular in the United Arab Emirates, thanks also to the start of work on the preparation of Expo 2020.
Talking about challenges that designers face when working on projects in the hotel sector, Pallavi Dean, Founder of Roar, explained that delivery of products within tight timelines is of paramount importance. Husain Roomi, Co-founder of H2R Design, added: “sourcing materiality that we can push boundaries with, and that positively surprises the environment".
In addition to the hotel sector, the United Arab Emirates and the KSA have undertaken major renovation programs to upgrade old public buildings using sustainable products and intelligent technologies. While appreciating the positive business climate, Husain Roomi believes that every space/place requires its own research, development and approach based on its context and brand ethos.

Tony Crinion, Portfolio Director - dmg events Design Division said:

"INDEX Dubai has been an integral event for the design community in the Middle East and North Africa for 28 years. The primary purpose of the show is to provide an event that listens and responds to the market it serves. With a particular focus on the hospitality and exhibition sectors, we are very excited to host a worldwide selection of products with which visitors can meet, find sources and have long-standing successful relationships”. 

INDEX is at the forefront of promoting the next generation of interior designers in the region. With regard to the design and installation of the GCC, Mustafa Khamash, Managing Director/Principal Architect of the Kart Group, said:

"I believe that young designers are our future and, as veteran designers, we all have a role to play in discovering and nurturing this talent”.

The companies participating in INDEX Dubai are Belair, Bloomr, Caimi Brevetti, Creative Closets, CUF Milano, Gie El, Indus Heritage Trust, Le JAHAAN, Quadrifoglio Sistemi D'Arredo, Ceramiche Refin, Seteria Bianchi, Vg - Vgnewtrend - Jupiter International S.R.L., VZOR, Lunares, and Meissen, to name a few, the oldest porcelain manufacturer in Europe.
