The four day event is aimed at providing a set of world-class international events in the symbolic city of Abu Dhabi at the award-winning ADNEC venue.

Abu Dhabi is the symbolic and chosen city for these events due to the presence of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque which owns the world’s largest Hand-Made Carpet and has world-class Mosaic Stone Flooring from Italy.

It measures over 5,600 sqm, weighs 35 tonnes, has approximately 2.27 billion knots and took approximately 2 years to complete! It was made from Cotton, and Wool sourced from New Zealand and Iran.

The Arab Carpet Expo will focus specifically on hand-made and machine-made carpets and rugs, standard industrial, commercial and residential carpet and any other carpet floor covering. It also includes their manufacture, laying, machinery, cleaning and application technologies, peripheral sales, marketing and services.

Yarn & Fiber Expo focuses purely on the Yarn, Fiber and related Raw Materials, Technologies and Innovations in this part of the industry. This special focus is important because it provides an opportunity for raw material providers to make direct contact with manufacturers.

Arab Carpet Expo is organised by Exco Media of London which is member of Association of Event Organisers, UK. The supporting associations include APID (Association of Interior Designers), Contractors Association. Key supporters include Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) and Abu Dhabi Tourism & Cultural Authority.

The MENA Construction Market (of which the Carpet and Flooring Industry is a key contributor) is experiencing strong year on year growth as a result ofheavy government investments and a number of key market drivers.

• By 2030 the city will have grown to a population of 3.1 Million - a 233% increase from 2007!

• Residential unit development will increase from 180,000 to 686,000.

• Tourists will grow from 1.8 Million to 8 Million.

• The UAE is to achieve a 7% growth per annum in 2010-15, and 6% through 2030.

• The investment in property developments from now to 2030 is estimated to be around AED 600 Billion.
