Gulf Glass Returns To Dubai From 24 to 26 September

The two exhibitions will run in parallel providing industry professionals a unique platform to source innovative products from around the world, discover the latest technologies, network and learn.

Leading brands including Saint Gobain, BDF Industries, Henry F. Teichmann, Horn Glass Industries, Bucher EMHART Glass, BASF, Forma Glass, Lizmontagens, Asahi India and Godrej already confirmed their participation at Gulf Glass. 

The move comes as industry reports forecast growing business opportunities in the Middle East. According to a recent MEED Projects report, in fact, the value of construction projects either in the planning stage or in the delivery stage is estimated at USD 2.7 trillion across the GCC only.

Muhammed Kazi, Portfolio Event Director at dmg events, says: "The UAE is expected to witness the major growth in the container glass segment in the coming years, and huge opportunities emerge in the flat glass segment too thanks to its versatile application in the construction industry."

"The demand for green buildings, solar technologies, and ecofriendly facades innovations for both new and retrofit projects in the Middle East are opening a wealth of opportunities to both local and international manufacturers across the glass, windows, doors and facades industries."

In 2019, over 11,000 participants are expected to meet in Dubai at Gulf Glass and the co-located WDF, where more than 300 exhibiting brands will showcase their products.

The largest glass, windows, doors and facades industry gathering in the Middle East, will also offer a wide education agenda including free CPD-certified workshops delivered by industry experts across the three days.  

The educational sessions will include presentations on challenges in selecting the right glass solutions, managing the aesthetic of glass architecture, latest trends in the use of BIPV glass, energy saving solutions for the glass industry, and advances in smart glass and smart tinting technologies, among others.

Organised every two years by dmg events, Gulf Glass is an unmissable one stop shop for all things glass. It hosts suppliers of finished products, glass production technology and machinery, glass processing & finishing solutions, measurement, testing & control technology, tools, replacements and spare parts, as well as auxiliary equipment and fitting.
