INDEX and workspace at INDEX 2016 editions officially open their doors with over 1,000 exhibitors

DUBAI, UAE – 23 May 2016 – INDEX, the GCC’s biggest event for sourcing interiors and design products, and workspace at INDEX, the region’s only exhibition dedicated to commercial interior design, opened their doors today for the 26th and 15th times respectively.

Excitement for this year’s shows was evident this morning, as H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Deputy Ruler of Dubai and the Minister of Finance and Industry of the United Arab Emirates, officially opened the doors to the exhibition’s largest number of exhibitors yet, welcoming 350 new exhibitors compared to last year’s edition, to total more than 1,000 incredible exhibitors.

Mirroring the ongoing success of INDEX and workspace at INDEX, the value of the GCC interior and fit-out market has risen and is now worth an estimated $7.35 billion, an increase of 25 percent from the previous year’s (source: Ventures Middle East, January 2016).

Samantha Kane Macdonald, Event Director, Index, dmg events said: “INDEX has seen significant growth over the years and is back with even bigger editions for 2016. The event offers the best opportunity in the region for the design community to come together for networking and sourcing products and judging from the buzz this morning, it’s set to be the best year yet”.
