The first edition of Arab Carpet and Flooring Expo was a successful launch show. It attracted 47 exhibitors from 15 different countries around the world and drew in visitors who from different 34 countries, making it a truly international event.
The second edition aims to continue to cement Abu Dhabi’s position as the hub of carpet and flooring in the MENA region by providing a platform for the world’s very best suppliers to showcase their products, services, technologies and innovations every year.
