2nd Arab Carpet & Flooring Expo is set for Abu Dhabi in September 2017

June 2017

The second edition of Arab Carpet & Flooring Expo, the international carpet and flooring exhibition, will take place from 12th to 14th September 2017 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre in the United Arab Emirates
Arab Carpet and Flooring Expo’s objective is to provide a world-class international event in the city of Abu Dhabi which boasts the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque; the location of the world’s largest hand-made carpet and a centre of truly world-class flooring. This unique carpet, made especially for Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque by around 1,300 Iranian carpet knotters, measures 5,627 sq. metres, weighs 35 tonnes and comprises approximately 2.27 billion knots.  It took two years to complete and was made from cotton and wool sourced from New Zealand and Iran.

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.

The organisers, ExCo Media, claims that no other event in the region provides a platform such as this for exhibitors, sponsors, visitors, industry professionals, private buyers and all other interested individuals and parties to participate in a set of events that focus specifically and only on carpet and flooring and to take advantage of the abundant economic, social, educational and environmental opportunities that exist locally and regionally in this space.
