Tower Tech 2011, the fourth edition of Qatar’s International Exhibition for Tower Building Technologies concluded yesterday with a ceremony held at the Doha Exhibition Centre.
Over 2,000 visitors attended the four-day event. They visited around 80 stalls from various countries, majority of which were Turkish and Doha-based companies dealing in products and services, technologies and innovations for all building and construction-related industries.
The exhibition was a timely event with many of the important projects set to take off in a few months time as Qatar gears up for World Cup 2022.
Qatar’s construction sector is poised to reach QR33bn by 2013, and with over 800 new towers planned to rise in Doha over the next 10 years, the market has been identified as one of the busiest construction areas in the world.
Qatar now is in constant need for the latest tower building and construction technologies, and Tower Tech provided massive opportunities to suppliers to explore new ideas for extending their businesses.
“There had been great demand for our products especially garbage chutes which are all made here, making our prices very competitive in the market,” said John Mingo, Sales Executive, Arabian Specialised Materials Company, adding the product is needed especially in high-rise buildings. The 15-year-old Doha-based company has been manufacturing, fabricating and selling products such as aluminium covers and Mapei which have generated much attention at the exhibition.
The event focused on latest technologies in green buildings, safety and security innovations. It was organised jointly by Doha-based Economic Group Exhibitions and Pyramids International.
The exhibition spread over an area of 7,500 square metres, half of the total Exhibition Centre area.
The fifth edition of Qatar’s International Exhibition for Tower Building Technologies would even be bigger covering the entire exhibition area, organisers said. It would be held from October 7 to 10 next year.
