An innovative UK based business which has launched themselves into the Middle Eastern market in 2013 are celebrating after securing a number of big money deals at the Big 5 International building and construction show, held at the World Trade Centre in Dubai.
Echo Barrier exhibited at the event, which is the biggest of its kind in the region, in 2012, as a way of testing the market, and secured a number of deals for their innovative noise reduction barriers. They opened offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi in early 2013 and have seen the demand for their products rise over the last few months.
As a direct result of the event this year, deals are being negotiated not only regionally (MENA Region) but also in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, South Korea, Germany, Spain, Malaysia, Russia and Australia.
Peter Wilson, technical director commented: "We have had a really successful first year doing business in the Middle East, making some strong business contacts and building our brand. The success of exhibiting at the Dubai Bug 5 has topped this off, and means we go into the new year with the future looking bright."
Attracting on average 50,000 people over three days, the Big 5 event brings together the most comprehensive range of building and construction companies and products in the Middle East, as well as the chance to attend seminars and hear about new opportunities in the quickly developing region.
The region boasts one of the fastest growing construction industries in the world and the opportunities for UK organisation are vast.
Echo Barrier offers high tech, market leading solutions for controlling excessive noise. Their systems make noise management simple, fast and highly effective. Barriers are flexible, provide exceptional acoustic performance, are easy to store, transport and fit. They were recently recognised by the Institute of Acoustics and Noise Abatement Society at their annual awards.
The commercial benefits of noise reduction are enormous, including extending site operating hours (and so reducing operational costs), minimising noise complaints, enhancing company reputation and providing for an improved working environment.
