Dubai Exhibition Centre (Co-Ex Campus)
The Dubai Exhibition Centre is our biggest supply reference, the main aims of the Conference & Exhibition campuses are to host international fairs, markets and trade shows in its exhibition hall. It also has meeting rooms, retail shops, food & beverages shops to continue business long after the Expo. The revenue generation will exceed up to $17.7 billion and create 277,000 jobs. For high-profile high traffic areas, combining aesthetics with serviceability is key. AQUAECO wall-mounted touchless mixers, in a bespoke Matt White finish, were installed alongside Alavo Dolphin mirror-systems are installed ensuring touch-free hand washing with custom Dolphin hand dryer-paper towel dispenser combination unit.
To service the huge project, water-saving and hygiene were a major requirements to achieve the LEED Gold certification. From concealed cisterns for the 11 purpose-built metro stations to 700 AQUAECO Sensor Taps for the pods covering the entire public areas within the Expo site specific and water restrictions were met. For basin mixers a further 20% reduction from the standard 1.9L a minute was insisted upon; cisterns were created with 2.5 L & 4L flushes, as well as 7.5 L p/m for the showers – all these items were a special order from the factory and helped us win the projects.
The logistical capabilities and extensive stock holding from SANIPEXGROUP enabled us to meet both the high-volume and quick delivery demands.
What is the World Expo 2020?
1851 saw ‘The Great Exhibition’ at Crystal palace London, showcasing the incredible inventions the Industrial Revolution brought us; the educational exhibition was praised and every few years what we now name a ‘World Expo’ is hosted in a different geographical location. The Dubai World Expo is the first to be held in the MEASA will be a 438-hectare area (1083 acres) located between the cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi and will run for almost 6 months from 01 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
The World Expo’s have been iconic exhibitions with unveilings that have proven to pave the future since the 19th Century. During each prolonged exhibition period of up to a year, past visitors discovered the first telephone, wireless technology and even the first Ferris wheel – The Ain Dubai, or Dubai Eye is under construction as the tallest observation wheel set to aptly open in line with the Expo 2020 – another Sanipex Group project reference.
