Design Congress 'first time for Dubai'

By Neil Young

Those with a Dubai property investment they may be interested attend the World Interior Design Congress that will be held next month.

The event is scheduled to take place between November 6th and 11th at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Dubai and will be hosted by the Association of Professional Interior Designers, with platinum sponsorship from Al Aqili Furnishings.

Shahriar Khodjasteh, group marketing director of AAF, said: "The choice of Dubai as the venue of their first gathering in the region speaks volumes about the interior design industry in the United Arab Emirates and without doubt this will be one of the most successful ever."

Mr Khodjasteh added that such events help to place the region at the centre of the interior design industry, in which he looked forward to seeing growth in every year moving forward.

The event will run at the same time as the General Assembly of the International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI) which is being held for the 24th time.

The IFI was founded in Denmark in 1963 and has 70 member associations, schools and institutions in 45 countries.
