Dubai project offers growth opportunity

Reed Exhibitions chief executive Alastair Gornall has expressed his excitement over the recent announcement from the Dubai government to build a multi-billion pound exhibition city within the Jebel Ali Airport City.

Gornall said the proposed 3-million sqm project, which will house an exhibition venue spanning more than 500,000sqm with 19 halls, will present 'an exciting opportunity to expand our business in the region'. Reed Travel Exhibitions organises Arabian Travel Market, which took place at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) from 3-6 May.

The project, announced in May, will be completed in phases by 2020. Hotels, flats and restaurants will comprise the rest of the scheme.
