Following the success of the Water Technology, Energy and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) 2009, the organisers have announced that next year's show is already 60 per cent booked.
The exhibition is fast becoming a major date in the calendar of events in Dubai and is capitalising on the rapid growth in water and electricity markets which has been brought about by the unprecedented development of commercial and residential property in Dubai.
Saeed Mohammad Al Tayer, managing director and chief executive officer of the Dubai Water and Electricity Authority (DEWA), said that this year's event had tackled key issues in areas such as energy conservation and environmental protection.
"We would like to thank the sponsors, co-sponsors and participants from the public and private sectors for being part of this exhibition which plays a major role in enhancing the socio-economic development of the UAE," he added.
DEWA has recently joined forces with rival utilities provider Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority to develop new high-voltage cabling solutions in both emirates as part of ongoing efforts to improve utilities in the UAE.
