The construction industry in the Middle East will get a boost this week when the region’s largest construction trade expo kicks off in Abu Dhabi on Monday, March 28. INTERMAT Middle East will showcase cutting edge equipment and products from some of the most renowned construction manufacturers in the area as well as exhibitors from countries around the world.
Despite a down economy, an estimated $600 billion is estimated to be spent on construction and infrastructure in the Middle East over the next three years. This will cause an increase in construction jobs and demand for construction equipment in the region, making this year’s INTERMAT Middle East expo a must for leading construction manufacturers that want a piece of the action.
It will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company center from March 28 to 30 and will correspond with Arabian Construction Week 2011.
