Jan 2016 GCC Building Construction and Interiors Report

We are pleased to bring you with our compliments, and courtesy of workspace at INDEX, the January 2016 Ventures-ME report on Construction and Interiors within the GCC region, with sector and country specific analysis of activity within 2015 and expected for 2016, including named project spend.

With overall market statistics and named project information, the report once again provides unique detail on the commercial, education and healthcare fit out opportunities available to North American companies in the Middle East region.

The Full Report is available for your download from here

An extract from the overall conclusion of the Report confirms as follows :

The GCC’s fit out industry has its hands full heading into 2016 due to heightened construction activity, and the completion of structural works on large-scale. Fit out operations have evolved in line with industry changes, and modern fit out designs and practices are transitioning to suit international standards. This evolution can be attributed to the rapid globalisation ambitions of local GCC markets such as the UAE and Qatar.

As sustainability has become a major issue, the fit out industry has experienced increased pressure to implement environmentally-responsible practices.

Despite the slump in oil prices, the GCC building construction and interiors market is clearly set for a sustained upward stint over the next few years.

Some highlights include :
– The GCC interiors and fit out spend in the Commercial Sector is expected to increase from US$ 1,150 million in 2015 to US$ 1,168 million in 2016.
– All GCC countries are likely to register an upward trend in 2016 in terms of interior and fit outs spend except for Saudi Arabia.
– The interiors and fit out spend in the UAE Commercial Sector alone is likely to increase from US$ 328 million in 2015 to US$ 350 million in 2016.

Major Winter Storm Affecting Logistics in Eastern U.S. with impacts for shipments throughout USA


Air and land transportation in the Eastern United States is expected to be disrupted over the next three days and beyond as Winter Storm Jonas dumps snow and ice on a large portion of the country from the Carolinas through New England. The storm has already hit the Mid Atlantic states, with snowfall reported in North Carolina and 1-2 feet expected in eastern Kentucky, West Virginia, southern Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

The storm is expected to hit Washington, DC and Virginia later on Friday, with 1-3 feet of snow expected in the area. As the storm moves north, some 8-12 inches of snow is forecast for New York City through Saturday and into Sunday.

The anticipated impact of the storm on transportation infrastructure is significant:

Ocean/Rail

U.S eastern railroads, parcel providers and trucking companies are warning shippers that the storm with blizzard conditions affecting 18 states will delay shipments Friday and through the weekend.

U.S. North Atlantic ports are shortening their operating hours in preparation for Winter Storm Jonas. Much of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, as far west as the Tennessee-Missouri border, and north as Connecticut, was under a mix of winter storm, blizzard, and flood warnings and watches, with Jonas threatening to dump anywhere from six to 30 inches of snow and precipitation on the Eastern U.S.

Air

Over 5,000 flights in the United States have been cancelled through Saturday.
American Airlines has canceled all flights from New York’s Kennedy, LaGuardia, and Newark Airports as of Saturday afternoon
United Airlines has canceled all flights from Washington Dulles Airport and other airports in the Mid-Atlantic United States as of Friday afternoon.
All flight operations at Philadelphia International Airport will be cancelled Saturday

Land

Significant disruptions on major highways from North Carolina and Tennessee through New York.
Interstate 81 – a key highway linking the Northeast United States with the Mid-Atlantic – may be closed during the storm.

Uncover the Facts

Workspace
According to CEIR* research, exhibitions generate more qualified sales leads compared to any other marketing channels. But do trade shows work as a smart investment for companies and do they still have a place in your business strategy?

The answer is a definite yes on both counts. Here is why:

MARKETING MYTH #1: “TRADE SHOWS ARE LOSING OUT TO ONLINE MARKETING”

It is true that online marketing continues to be a popular low cost technique, however online lead generation is a timely process. Exhibitions offer invaluable face-to-face networking opportunities that online marketing cannot provide.

MARKETING MYTH #2: “TRADE SHOWS ARE NOT GOOD FOR LEAD GENERATION”:

Trade shows are unique in that you are surrounded by thousands of new potential leads for your business. At workspace at INDEX, these are pre-qualified for you, so you can easily identify members of the Design Buyers Club, the Retail Buyers Club and The One VIP. Remember, 60% of visitors to workspace at INDEX 2015 were either decision makers or buyers and 22% of visitors had a purchasing authority in excess of $1 Million. So, each attendee of a trade show is a potential lead waiting to be captured.

MARKETING MYTH #3: “TRADE SHOWS ARE AN EXPENSIVE AFFAIR”:

Trade shows remain an exclusive marketing medium as they offer direct engagement with your industry. They are an investment in the process of business development and should be considered as such. Don’t forget, when it comes to influencing a decision, nothing can beat a face-to-face meeting. In 2015, workspace at INDEX brought together 16,800 members of the design community!

MARKETING MYTH #4: “THERE WILL BE A LOT OF COMPETITION”:

Yes, you usually won’t be the only company that offers a specific product at an exhibition. Win the exhibition battle by using innovative techniques to gather a crowd. Draw in buyers to your stand and remember, if you are not present, your competitor wins.
