Environmental Technology Event Makes Timely Debut in Dubai

Nov 17 2014

With the European environmental technology market alone estimated to be worth somewhere in the region of €227 billion annually, the ArabLab Group’s move to develop a new industry event in Dubai is timely. The event, Envirotec, will sit alongside the groups’ well established ArabLab exhibition which will run from 23rd-26th March 2015 at the Dubai Exhibition Centre.

Like its stable mate, ArabLab, Envirotec will concentrate on developing a highly focussed platform where specialist exhibitors will be able to meet and do business with equally specialist visitors. Commenting on the development of the Envirotec show David Domoney, Managing Director of the ArabLab Group, said; “It has been an exciting 8 months since we announced the launch of Envirotec. Launching a new show is always a challenge as we fine tune the final event from the detailed plans we set out with.

“We took the decision to launch Envirotec in response to the steadily growing interest in the environmental technology sector from many of the existing ArabLab exhibitors. The move will allow ArabLab to expand, taking in new exhibitors who will find a natural home under the Envirotec umbrella.”

The importance of the environmental industries were highlighted by this week’s report from the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) which said that the planet faces real environmental challenges this century. “We have the means to limit climate change,” said R. K. Pachauri, Chair of the IPCC. “The solutions are many and allow for continued economic and human development. All we need is the will to change, which we trust will be motivated by knowledge and an understanding of the science of climate change.”

Domoney continued; “Environmental technologies are about greening the economy and as such are the missing link between raising competitiveness in the world economy and making sure that development is sustainable. Envirotec will provide a platform for those companies producing tools and applications that can decrease material inputs, reduce energy consumption and emissions, recover valuable by-products and minimise waste. In general they are lean and resource-efficient technologies that can help to reduce the impact on the environment.”

In addition to the exhibition, Envirotec will run a series of high-profile seminars over the four days covering five themed channels. The AIRTEC seminars, which will provide an effective learning source in clean air technology; the SOILTEC seminars, focussing on instrumentation in the soil testing sector; the POLLUTEC seminars, which will look at the analytical approach to a better environment; WASTETEC seminars providing a research source for controlled waste management; and finally the WATERTEC seminars which will look at efficient control and management for water quality.

“We are excited about the launch of ENVIROTEC”, said David Domoney. “It is, I believe, a great step for the ARABLAB Group, an exciting one for the industries involved in environmental technologies, and puts Dubai and the United Arab Emirates at the forefront of this growing technology sector. We are looking forward to the first exhibition next year, and to growing the event in the years to come.”
