Because the Middle East market is currently purchasing a large amount of timber, European and U.S. wood companies are working toward increasing their sales across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) market.
The announcement that the U.S. and European companies want to expand their sales into MENA was made at the Dubai WoodShow 2016, the largest specialized wood trade show for producers, manufacturers, importers, exporters, dealers, suppliers and other players in the wood industry.
Also discussed during the trades show was the legal use of timber. On the second day of the event, participants noted that green initiatives developing in the Gulf have called for the use of more wood. The second day highlighted the attendance of many trade visitors, architects, representatives of associations and commercial boards, interior designers and furniture manufacturers.
During the trade show, many products were put on display included, wood, woodworking machinery, blades, knives, tools, abrasives and other related products.
The Dubai Woodshow was held April 4-6 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
