DAB keeps moving forward. Instead of resting on its laurels after the revolution that led to the creation of the DAB Water Technology Group (which unites the brands DAB, Alma, Brisan, Tesla and Wacs), the Italian company is continuing to explore important new international markets. Convinced of the quality and reliability of its products, DAB Water Technology Group has decided to set its sights on such exacting and prestigious markets as North Africa, the Middle East and the GCC countries, which are experiencing some of the world’s highest growth rates in the water management and treatment sector. As a result, for the first time in their more than 30 years of history, DAB and the DWT companies will participate in the Gulf region's most important showcase for the sector – the BIG 5 in Dubai. Leading players in the construction, safety systems, environment and water treatment sectors will meet at the four-day international fair, which will be held in the spectacular setting of the World Trade Centre in Dubai. Participants will include a large number of professionals operating in these sectors (contractors, architects, engineers and buyers), arriving not only from the United Arab Emirates and the Arabian Peninsula, but from the entire world. The 2009 BIG 5 event had almost 50,000 visitors and more than 2,000 businesses from 50 different countries. These numbers attest to the recognition that this important international fair enjoys. The event offers a unique opportunity to promote the company’s excellent products and generate sales primarily, but not solely, in the Middle East. DWT Group could not pass up this chance to meet directly with regional clients and strengthen its relations with local partners and distributors. Representatives from DAB Water Technology Group will staff the group's 40 m2 stand, which will display the entire range of products from the pumps division (with products from DAB, LEADER, ALMA and BRISAN), the motors division (with products from TESLA), and the electronic control systems division (with products from WACS).
