The 4th Gulf Glass exhibition in 2011 (and the first in Abu Dhabi), has seen a large-scale upswing in terms of exhibitors from sectors not traditionally seen in great numbers at the event. According to Derek Burston, sales and marketing manager, The flat and processed flat glass sector is usually the most important, but on this occasion, we are seeing container glass, tableware and refractories coming up in terms of numbers of exhibitors. Companies such as Saint Gobain Sefpro are among the most recent high-profile refractory companies to sign up for the 2011 show, whilst on the container side the likes of Zippe, CMS Makine and Ungricht have all signed up in the last few weeks. We now have offers out for double the remaining space, added Burston and are in negotiations with Abu Dhabi to release another hall should we require it. When you consider that we have secured sizeable involvements from China and – the first time – Egypt for 2011, as well as support from the industry“s leading machinery organization, GIMAV, we are delighted to report that the exhibition is likely to be sold out entirely for the first time. Abu Dhabi, and the Gulf Glass 2011 show, are positioning themselves as the premier location and event for all aspects of the glass industry in the region, adds Burston.
