INDEX is a long-established international interiors exhibition and one of Dubai’s (and the Middle East’s) first large-scale trade exhibitions. Created 30 years ago as a gateway for global interior furnishing businesses to capitalise on the booming real estate in the Middle East, the event remains the region’s largest showcase of furniture, furnishing, decorative products, textiles, surface materials and lighting for interior designers and procurement managers to source from.
The event will be featuring more than 70% international brands as part of the 500+ exhibitors exhibiting, it is unique in its position globally as a melting pot of design styles and inspirations for the regional interiors industry alongside new furniture brands and manufacturers from Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia.
Every year, 30,000+ visitors utilise the Dubai based exhibition to discover new and innovative products from across the globe in addition to exploring showcases from local designers, brands, and manufacturers. The world-renowned event now runs a brand extension in Saudi (INDEX Saudi) and is itself co-located with The Hotel Show Dubai, HITEC, The Leisure Show, and WORKSPACE.
The combination of events offers an excellent proposition for business professionals in the home, hotel, office, and leisure sectors, resulting in the ultimate destination to learn, network and source premium-quality products from across the globe.
Why does INDEX exist?
Designers need to find new and interesting products that make interiors stand out in an extremely fast-paced region for new projects, that deliver to specific project locations in the Middle East. Retailers need to find manufacturers that have the logistics to supply to specific requirements and be innovative enough to sell out in store to new consumer trends. These people need to be able to build long term relationships with suppliers they trust, and touch/feel products in person to understand technical specs, quality, colours, and textures.
INDEX is the ONLY way they can do that, all in one place, at one time – refreshing little black books of buyers and specifiers from across the region. Unearthing new designs that will put their business at the cutting edge.
INDEX has the power and influence to transform the interiors of an entire region, existing only to make connections between people and product.
