Interiors fair INDEX has announced it will now take place in 2021.
The trade fair for interiors professionals in the Middle East was scheduled to take place at Dubai World Trade Centre in September 2020.
However the ongoing global pandemic has seen many industry events shifted to later dates.
INDEX's 30th edition will now be held from Monday 31st May to Wednesday 2nd June alongside WORKSPACE, The Leisure Show and The Hotel Show.
In a statement announcing the postponement, organisers dmg events say the decision to postpone had been based on concerns around the global pandemic, accessibility, and for the wellbeing of exhibitors, visitors, speakers and delegates.
Katie McBride, commercial director of design, dmg events explains: “Over the past few months, we've been astounded by the positivity and resilience creative businesses have shown when facing the unprecedented challenge of COVID-19.”
“This global pandemic has impacted the interiors community in multiple ways, not least the ability to meet face-to-face and see first-hand the latest innovations in design and products. With this in mind, and considering the important role that INDEX plays as a platform to facilitate networking, trade, and business connections in the Middle East, today we are announcing the postponement of the event to 31st May – 2nd June 2021, at Dubai World Trade Centre.”
More than 20,000 visitors attend the annual INDEX events, which gives access to suppliers and manufacturers in furniture, furnishing, fit-out, textiles, lighting and surface materials from around the world.
