Sharjah event to focus on green technology, products
Sharjah, August 20, 2013
A variety of innovative green technology and eco-friendly products will be the focus of an exhibition to be held in Sharjah in October.
Aiming to empower local and regional industries in the green race, the Green Middle East 2013, will provide solutions to reduce and reuse solid waste and other trash, while helping save energy, lessen pollution and build greener structures.
The third edition of the environmental management and technology exhibition and conference will be held at the Expo Centre Sharjah from October 28 to 30.
Regional businesses will also have an opportunity to weigh up their green credentials against their peers, through the second Green Middle East Environmental Excellence Award.
Apart from adopting clean technology, substituting every day-use products with more eco-friendly ones is helping companies boost their corporate social responsibility initiatives as well as cater to the heightened environment awareness among office-goers, said a statement.
The event will also focus on residents and businesses that are enthusiastic about using eco-friendly alternatives in their homes and offices by launching a new event dedicated to such products – Green Products Middle East.
“Through the Middle East Green Products, we are planning a product range that covers food and beverage, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, textiles, household articles, products for animals, games and toys for children,” said Gregor Konrad, owner, Concept Agentur für Marketing and Kommunikation, a co-organiser of the event.
Apart from the Middle East Green Products, another new addition to the Green ME 2013 will be the Equip 4 Municipalities section, which will feature green solutions for urban road building, city transport and traffic support, street and outdoor lighting, communal facilities, parks and other public places.
Expo Centre has also tied up with IQPC to launch the Green Middle East Conference 2013, which will aim to bring spotlight on waste management and environmental protection within the industrial sector. - TradeArabia News Service
