VIS Exhibitions and Conferences, VIS Group, sets another record in the Gulf with the successful conclusion of the second edition of Middle East Cleaning Technology Week organised along with Media Fusion, Dubai. Middle East Cleaning Technology Week comprising three expos – Clean Middle East Pulire, Gulf Laundrex and Gulf Car Wash – held from November 13 to 15 at the Dubai World Trade Center surpassed expectations, with exhibitors elated over the 4,500 footfall and quality of visitors.
This is the best-show ever for us. We have received tremendous responses and excellent leads,” said Chandan Singh, CEO-UAE, Dhofar Global.
Visitors walking in from all parts of the Gulf and other countries were enthused by the range of innovative products right from multi-purpose cleaning tools to energy efficient laundry systems. Exhibitors confessed a new experience with such “high quality visitors” and were pleased to see visitors from Bahrain, Oman, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, India and other countries.
“Indeed, it is a new experience here at the Dubai Show. Even though there are not too many visitors, the quality is very high,” said Uwe Stahl, Managing Director of Stahl GmbH.
“We have seen fantastic customers from different countries at the Gulf Car Care Expo and the participation of exhibitors from all over the world. This year the show is better than the last year and I am sure in the coming few years, this show itself will become bigger,” said Mohammed Al Samhouri, Director-Business Development and Operations, Auto Millennium Group.
The Gulf Car Wash show was a happening place with very interestingly made stalls. Alex Jin, Managing Director, Seven CarWash Korea Inc, participating for the first time in the Gulf Car Wash, said, “I found many things as a surprise at this show and I would like to participate every time. We got visitors from India, Emirates, Saudi, Kuwait and many other countries. We have the Korean car steam wash machine which is highly effective.”
One of the leaders in the car care industry, AVW – Tommy Car Wash Systems’ President Ryan Essenburg, said, “The show for us has been very busy this year. We’ve got more interest from customers around Dubai along with outside countries, so we had overall much more traffic this year. The response was very positive; we met people from India and Europe, and made many new contacts. We will certainly be back next year; it’s been a great experience.”
A much bigger show, CMEP was a great success. As Nizar Karmali, Director, Daitona General Trading LLC, put it, “The exhibition is very good and we have been very busy and we will be participating next time too. The visitors are of very good quality, exactly the kind that we wanted. With the prospects that we have generated, this is going to be the best show so far.”
Venkatesh Manjeri, Divisional Manager, Floorcare Division, Intercare, said that the quality visitor turnout was very impressive. “People are interested in seeing innovation. The products displayed at our booth has been a big hit and many of them are asking for demos.”
Samit Sanyal, Marketing-Director, Sealed Air Diversey, said, “The show this year was much more successful and bigger as compared to the previous years. We’re quite satisfied and pleased with the way we have seen the quality of customers coming. Live demos were interesting.”
John Shields, VP Business Unit, EMEA, Hydro Systems Europe Ltd, said, “We are meeting all our target segments and that is what we wanted to do. It has been worth the investment.”
