Dubai: Walid Farghal, Director-General of Strategic Marketing and Exhibitions, organisers of Dubai WoodShow 2014, said wood sustainability in construction works will be one of the major topics of discussion at the exhibition that will be held from April 8 to 10 at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Farghal says using sustainable wood in the GCC construction industry would help conserve natural resources and boost the global wealth of trees. He added that sustainable wood is a topic that is dominating the regional construction sector in line with the governments’ vision of environment sustainability.
Farghal said that construction and real-estate sectors had started implementing stringent eco-friendly standards, having a domino effect on other related sectors working toward a green approach.
“The exhibition highlights international standards in manufacturing carpentry and furniture companies which are highly dependent on hardwoods, aiming to pass on the experience to the local importers, especially those working with the real-estate developers. Moreover, the exhibition will provide insights into the environmental performance of wood products and the right methods of choosing suitable wood products,” Farghal said.
