This year’s edition of the ‘Dubai International Wood & Wood Machinery Show’ (Dubai WoodShow), the regional landmark event for wood trade and investment, which ran from April 9 to April 11, 2013 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC), ended on a high note with over USD 100 million in reported sales during its exciting three-day run. According to Strategic Marketing and Exhibitions, the event’s organizers, the show posted an attendance of 7,000. 'Dubai WoodShow 2013' lived up to its reputation of providing a strategic platform for communication and development on the latest wood industry products and suppliers, while at the same time also giving participants and exhibitors the opportunity to explore new markets and help maintain relations with existing clients.

Dubbed as the largest ‘Dubai WoodShow’ ever, the event’s opening was graced by visiting foreign dignitaries that included the DWS honoured guest, H.E. Ngole Philip Ngwese, Minister of Forestry and Wildlife for Cameroon; H.E. Henry Djombo, Minister of Sustainable Development, Forest Economy and Environment for the Republic of Congo; Mariteuw Chimère Ndiaw, Executive Officer, African Model Forest Network and Franz-Josef Bütfering, President, EUMABOIS. The show, which was 35 per cent bigger in terms of exhibitor participation and exhibition floor space, aimed towards complementing the industry’s continuing efforts towards encouraging the use of more wood in further keeping with green and sustainable building and construction practices. As with its previous editions,'Dubai WoodShow 2013' featured 12 international pavilions hosted by participating countries like the United States, Canada, Germany, France, China, Malaysia, Cameroon and Congo, to name a few.

"We were highly impressed by the display of technology, the massive presence of major companies and the numerous interactions and stakeholders of the industry at this year’s event,” said H.E. Ngole Philip Ngwese. "Participating at ‘Dubai WoodShow’ has allowed us the opportunity to showcase Cameroon's large wood market, which includes 300 different species of trees out of which 60 are being used. I am glad that we have created opportunities for wood transformation and have also increased our contact list of potential investors to Cameroon.”

One of the main highlights of ‘Dubai WoodShow 2013’ was a special seminar focusing on the various possibilities to be gained from building with wood. The seminar covered four timely topics, which included the use of wood as a building material in the GCC; wood as a design component of architectural projects; the current state of wood use in the GCC and timber legality. During the day-long seminar, special presentations were made by representatives from the Emirates Authority for Standardization & Metrology; the Malaysian Timber Certification Council; Quebec Wood Export Bureau; Dubai Municipality; Dubai Central Laboratory and the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC).

“’Dubai WoodShow 2013’ was a complete success. This year’s event has so far, generated over USD 100 million in sales, let alone the new partnerships and opportunities created among the exhibitors and potential clients that visited during the show’s three-day run. We are also grateful for the overwhelming response that we have received for the preparations we made for this year that included a larger exhibition area, strategic seminars and key networking events. As a result, we have already received advanced bookings for next year’s event which we promise will be larger, and will be true to our commitment of promoting an “wood” an essential building and design material,” concluded Dawood Al Shezawi, Chairman, Dubai WoodShow Organizing Committee.
