World-leading products add sparkle to The Home Show 2016

MUSCAT: The 2016 edition of The Home Show, the Sultanate’s preeminent showcase of the ideal home environment, opened at the Oman Convention & Exhibition Center yesterday, paving the way for four days of lucrative retail shopping, B2B transactions, financing and contracting deals, and networking opportunities.
Dr Rasheed bin Al Safi al Huraibi, Chairman of the Tender Board, formally inaugurated the sixth edition of this popular trade fair.
The annual event, which concludes on December 8, 2016, is keenly awaited for its exciting promotions, latest offerings in furniture and furnishings, bedroom and bathroom sets, kitchen systems and appliances, doors and windows, home appliances and electronics, wall and floor coverings, lighting and fixtures, and comprehensive selection of smart home solutions.
Organised by well-known events management firm Global Exhibitions & Conferences LLC (GEC), this year’s event has attracted the presence of more than 100 firms well regarded as leading lights of the home-building, interiors, furnishing and homeownership arena.
The large majority are regular participants, who have long capitalised on the event’s huge appeal to grow their market share in Oman.
Lending further prestige and glamour to this year’s edition is its location in the upscale Oman Convention & Exhibition Center —the nation’s flagship venue for high-profile exhibitions, conferences and events.
Given its importance to advancing homeownership in the Sultanate, The Home Show is backed by the Ministry of Housing.
Also extending support are Oman Housing Bank, Oman Real Estate Association, Muscat Electricity Distribution Company and Riyada, among other agencies.
Sponsorship support for the event has come from a number of leading local furnishers and distributors.
The list includes Berger Paints and Global Pyramid LLC as Gold Sponsors, and Al Jassar Furnishing, Pro Windows, and Taj Al Lulu Ceramics as Associate Sponsors.
Part of The Home Show’s popularity stems from the exciting raffle draws and competitions that enable visitors to walk away with attractive prizes.
