Expo 2020 Dubai’s key focus on sustainable & healthy built environment to attract multibillion-dollar investments in natural greens

IPM Dubai 2017 gears up for regional & international markets eyeing to serve urban greening initiatives across the Middle East

A growing focus on creating sustainable cities for healthier living environments – one of the main agendas under the sustainability theme of Expo 2020 Dubai - is attracting multibillion-dollar investments in urban landscaping and horticulture across the UAE and the Middle East. Dubai, for example, has allotted about AED 6 billion to further develop 12,000 hectares of land for natural greenery, while Abu Dhabi has invested AED 23 million for landscaping projects in the UAE capital. 

To meet the increasing demands in the sector, International Plants Expo Middle East (IPM Dubai), under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman of Dubai Airports, jointly organized by Messe Essen GmbH and planetfair Dubai LLC, will open its 12 edition (IPM Dubai 2017) to welcome a wide range of the latest market innovations and industry professionals in floriculture, horticulture, urban landscaping and architecture, among other industry-related products and services. The three-day trade show will be simultaneously held with the World of Perishables (WOP) exhibition at the Dubai World Trade Centre from December 5 to 7, 2017.
