Top Line Figures Released for INDEX and Workspace at INDEX Dubai 2014

INDEX and workspace at INDEX attracted 21,834 and 12,859 visitors respectively

Top line figures for the last editions of INDEX and workspace at INDEX confirm the show’s roles as an essential business platform for the MENA interior and commercial interior design community.

A large crowd of architects, designers, project managers, office managers, facilities managers and retailers flocked to the shows in May 2014, with 21,834 visitors attending INDEX and 12,859 visitors attending workspace at INDEX.

Compared to the 2013 editions, both exhibitions recorded a healthy increase in visitors and confirmed their positions as the most widely respected architecture and design events in the Middle East with visitors coming from more than 100 countries.

The 2014 edition of INDEX also confirmed the growing confidence in the Middle East interiors market, having recorded a 25% increase in the size of the show. “At dmg events we are once again extremely pleased about the results that were achieved. In particular workspace at INDEX – with its triple digit growth in both revenues and attendees – has proved to be the right step to fulfil the expectations and demands of exhibitors and trade visitors. These incredibly positive results encourage the whole team behind the shows to keep working hard and continue to strive for even better shows next year. Next year will be the 25th edition of INDEX and we want to make it memorable,” commented Frederique Maurell, Group Event Director for INDEX and workspace at INDEX.

2015 will also see workspace at INDEX grow in size and move location into the main halls as a fully integrated part of INDEX 2015.

Detailed Post Show Reports are expected soon !

USA-OK Industries

One strategy for a U.S.-based small manufacturer might include flying to China, venturing into its sprawling industrial regions, making a deal and then waiting for shipments to arrive on huge container ships.

Not so for Mike Dreeben and Ray Doeksen. They say they designed their USA-OK Chair, which they hope is the start of a furniture line and a successful company, so that it could be made in one of the many small metal fabrication shops around Chicago.
