He added: "We are very delighted with the strong paticipation of global exhibitors at Dubai Woodshow 2014, including architects, interior designers, furniture manufacturers, representatives of associations and commercial boards, as well as a large number of visitors.


Dubai WoodShow, spread over an area of 13,428 sq.m., has organized a series of specialised seminars featuring renowned international experts from timber trade bodies from all over the world



The UAE is a leading hub for the timber trade in Gulf region through Dubai. The legal use of Timber was a major highlight on the second day of Dubai Woodshow 2014 that seeks to promote wood solutions in the GCC, especially in the design and construction sectors



Positioned as the biggest specialised trade show, The Dubai Woodshow is an annual meeting point for producers, manufacturers, importers, exporters, dealers, suppliers and end-users and other players in the wood industry.
