• Latest fire incidents in globally leading cities put a spotlight on façade safety issues
  • More than 300 exhibitors from 64 countries are expected to participate in the region’s leading industry event, Windows Doors & Facades 2017
  • The event represents the ideal opportunity for industry players to showcase their products, network and conduct business

Dubai, United Arab Emirates; August 13, 2017: Global manufacturers and distributors will address risks and security concerns related to combustible facades at Windows Doors & Facades Event 2017. Following a number of global and regional blazes in high-rise towers, debate on the implementation of the fire safety regulations is revamping. The UAE updated their Fire Safety and Life Protection Code earlier this year, incorporating international standards and best practices. The new code also targets the exterior cladding that has been blamed for the spread of many fires and aims to reduce its flammability.

The event held on 25th to 27th September 2017 at Dubai World Trade Centre, will showcase products, latest trends and explore opportunities for growth in a more collaborative and safer future. Organised by dmg events Middle East, Asia & Africa, the second edition of Windows, Doors & Facades Event will host industry leaders and experts sharing their thoughts and experiences on how the rapidly advancing facade technology and innovative design are playing a critical role in the industry development.

Windows Doors & Facades is the region’s only dedicated platform for global consultants, manufacturers and distributors of window, door and facade products to network and conduct business in one place, at one time. Following its successful launch that attracted more than 5,500 visitors in 2016, the event will feature more than 300 exhibitors from 64 countries, and is expected to attract more than 8,000 industry professionals from the MENA region.

The event introduces professionals to global and regional trends that are changing the traditional approach of the windows, doors and facades industry. This includes the advent of 3D building information modelling and innovations supporting regional government agendas related to environmental sustainability, safety and the wellbeing of occupants. 

“This gathering of industry professionals presents a great opportunity for visitors and exhibitors to gain strategic insights from international & regional thought-leaders and industry experts,” said Muhammed Kazi, Exhibition Director of Windows, Doors & Facades 2017. “Visitors and exhibitors will be able to benchmark with the latest global and regional trends to ensure their organisations can take a leading approach in addressing industry needs, demands and challenges,” he added.

The business to business event brings together in one place global and regional developers, investors, consultants, architects, contractors and distributors. Representatives from key industry stakeholder groups including Alumil, Platinum Sponsor, Reynaers, Executive Associate Sponsor and Founding Partners Schüco, Elumatec, Cladtech International, Orgadata, leverage the exhibition to engage in active and productive dialogue on key challenges facing the industry’s projects, working to bring businesses closer and fulfil their potential.

“Windows Doors & Facades is a much-anticipated event for industry players to meet potential business partners, investors, and collaborators,” said Christopher Chatzigeorgiou, Managing Director of Alumil. “Building on the growth of the Middle East market and after successfully establishing itself last year, more exhibitors from the region and the globe are expected to join, giving event participants more opportunities to develop their business and fulfil their potential.”

The exhibition will host a series of visionary keynotes, educational seminars and relevant workshops presenting the best global practice, providing the tools and knowledge to develop and improve business efficiency. With accredited workshops and over a thousand innovative products on display, the second edition of Windows, Doors & Facades event is packed with exciting features.
