The four-day event will be unveiled at Doha Exhibition Centre on November 10, 2010.
Qatar Expo and EPOC Messe Frankfurt are joining forces to develop INFDEX 2010. The event, which is Qatar’s only major interior design and furniture expo, continues its evolution into a regional event by serving GCC & international markets and attracting an expected 30,000 trade and public visitors., said Ahmed Pauwels, CEO, EPOC Messe Frankfurt GmbH.
“There is a tremendous focus by international and regional companies, on discovering and nurturing new business opportunities in GCC.
This new venture is our first step into the Qatar market which is a very attractive place to do business. We are very excited about the potential growth here and look forward to doing business in this amazing city”, Pauwels said.
The partnership with Qatar Expo will capitalize on the expertise and experience of both companies to maximise business opportunities for the interior design industry and companies exhibition at INFDEX 2010, he added.
The joint collaboration between the two exhibition industry leaders will add fresh impetus to INFDEX 2010 as the exhibition looks to increase the 3000 new design ideas and 140 exhibitors from INFDEX 2009.
Both companies will work towards the common goal of establishing INFDEX as a truly regional show and a ‘must attend’ event on the international furniture and design industry calendar.
EPOC Messe Frankfurt will work closely with the Qatar Expo team and its worldwide representatives to put together a winning strategy to increase and enhance the value and exposure of INFDEX 2010.

EPOC Messe Frankfurt brings to the partnership their track record and strong knowledge of the regional and global exhibitions market. Together, we can develop INFDEX into a one-stop shop for the regional design industry.”
For the third year in a row, INFDEX 2010 will host the finals of the region’s most prestigious student design award, the INFDEX Best Young Designer Award sponsored once again by Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company.
