BUYER TESTIMONIALS

Each year we ask our delegates to provide detailed feedback on their HI Design MEA experience. Here is a sample of Buyer testimonials from the last HI Design MEA 2017 event. You can also read the Supplier testimonials.

  Most important is the opportunity of meeting many suppliers in a short timeframe.  

PARTNER / DESIGN DIRECTOR, HBA DUBAI

  Well-organised & managed in terms of time and structuring. Good selection of people. Extremely valuable time investment. I would recommend it to any one.  

MANAGING DIRECTOR + PARTNER, MMAC DESIGN ASSOCIATES

  You guys are beyond amazing! There is a genuine care that is unlike any other event. It is a great opportunity to quickly see what’s new, who is where and doing what  

DIRECTOR OF DESIGN ARCHITECTURE & CONSTRUCTION, MEA, HILTON

  I think the organization and programme were great. The selection of suppliers was well researched and the contacts made will definitely add value to the services that we can deliver in the future. Great to get an update on who and where the industry is moving. Picking up on design trends in projects and products and getting an idea on regional strengths and weaknesses.  

DIRECTOR, INFINITE DXB

  It was a very efficient and effective event. It is fantastic as we have the opportunity to focus on the meetings. A great platform to network. I was very pleased to discover suppliers in other regions of the world that I was unaware of. I thoroughly enjoyed the panel discussions too. The possibility to see so many suppliers in a couple of days, which is something I would never take the time off to do in Dubai.
