"Now in its 13th edition Hardware+Tools Middle East has been playing a significant role in the overall development of the industry over the years," said Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Epoc Messe Frankfurt. "Being the only dedicated trade event of its kind to serve the region, international manufacturers and suppliers have seen Hardware+Tools Middle East as a vital access channel to reach the growing markets of the wider Middle East region, currently enjoying steady economic growth."
"Apart from serving as a networking and business platform, the event has also played a greater developmental role by facilitating the implementation of industry best practices and creating awareness of the latest trends and developments in the industry through the various seminars and workshops organised alongside the trade show," Pauwels added.
