INDEX design fair is postponed until 20201
Interiors fair INDEX has announced the 2020 event will not take place.
The trade fair for interiors professionals in the Middle East was scheduled to take place at Dubai World Trade Centre in September 2020, with more than 20,000 people usually attending the annual event.
They have access to suppliers and manufacturers in furniture, furnishing, fitout, textiles, lighting and surface materials from around the world.
In a statement announcing the postponement, organisers dmg events say the decision was 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."
The next INDEX fair is scheduled to take place in May 2021.
