The MENA event will cover all sectors of the construction industry including a strong emphasis on new technology in the field of green building.
At a press conference held last week Zahi Salameh, director of the hosting company Al Mutaaleq for international exhibitions, said that government officials and business delegations from Algeria, Iran, Iraq, Bulgaria and Palestine are all scheduled to attend the construction trade expo.
Salameh also stated that due to political unrest sweeping across the Arab world companies from nine countries originally scheduled to attend had canceled. This includes Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco.
