Industry Veterans Launch New Exhibitions Company in the Region

‘THE DOMUS GROUP’ to introduce new concept in exhibitions targeting key industry sectors – Laboratory, Property, Media and Finance

(PRWEB) September 16, 2004

DubaiÂ’s thriving exhibitions industry is set to welcome a new player - THE DOMUS GROUP. Backed by veterans in the Middle East exhibitions industry, the company will host exhibitions with a completely new concept in select industry sectors: Laboratory, Property, Media and Finance.

THE DOMUS GROUP’s exhibitions will involve a weeklong calendar of conferences and seminars held in conjunction with the main exhibition leading to an ‘intensive and extensive’ trade show experience. The company is partnering with several specialists in each industry sector to offer exhibitors and visitors multiple opportunities to conduct business and network.

Commenting on this new initiative, David Domoney, Managing Director, THE DOMUS GROUP stated: “Dubai’s strategic location, and excellent tourism infrastructure makes it the ideal global MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) destination. Over the past few years, there has been a phenomenal increase in the number of exhibitions being hosted in Dubai International Exhibitions Centre (DIEC) and other locations in the region. However, while these exhibitions are well-attended and contribute significantly to business in the concerned industry, there seems to be a lack of adequate focus on the subjects at hand.”

“The traditional formula of organising a three or four day exhibitions cannot work if one is aiming to give visitors a truly in depth experience. By tying up with strategic partners in each field to host specialised events, THE DOMUS GROUP is aiming to enhance the trade show experience. It also gives international visitors who travel to Dubai specifically for the exhibition a better opportunity to analyse the market fully, meet with key players and thus, make well-informed decisions,” continued Domoney.

Abdulla Abulhoul, Partner and Director of THE DOMUS GROUP commented: “DOMUS is well-equipped to offer regional and international trade visitors a professionally managed show, as each the promoters have over 25 years of experience in Dubai’s exhibitions industry. We have identified key areas of growth in the region for our upcoming exhibitions and tied up with the best in the business to offer visitors a comprehensive experience at each event through networking meetings, VIP site visits and association meetings.”

“For example, the Dubai Property Investment Show will be part of an International Property Week, coinciding with the MEED Real Estate Conference, International Property Forum. Similiarly, we will be hosting an International Laboratory Week covering the Arab Lab & Instrumentation show, BioLab, EnviroLab International Laboratory Conference, Gulf Instrumentation Forum and The Testing Range,” added Abulhoul.

Abulhoul was the former Foreign Relations Director of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and a long-time player in the emirateÂ’s exhibitions industry. David Domoney has worked in DubaiÂ’s exhibition industry for several years having developed the Big 5 show as well as organised events in the U. K, Monte Carlo, Hong Kong, Kenya, Malaysia, Egypt and the Netherlands. The companyÂ’s Marketing Director, Guy Guillemard has an established career in the exhibition industry in the U. K and Dubai and has held senior positions in property and leisure management in the Middle East, Europe and Asia Pacific. He was General Manager and Director of Dubai World Trade Centre for ten years from 1979-1989 and helped to develop the GITEX show.

The dates for THE DOMUS GROUPÂ’s upcoming events are International Laboratory Week coinciding with Arab Lab and Instrumentation Show (January 31-February 3, 2005), International Property Week and the Dubai Property Investment Show (February 1-3, 2005), International Media Week featuring the Media Show (7-9 November, 2005) and International Finance Week with the International Finance and Banking Exhibition in 2006, all held at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.
