According to Matthew, the event was a great success “This conference provides a great opportunity for us to enhance our presence in the region where a number of large tunnelling projects are either under way or planned. The visitor profile for this conference is extremely diverse including engineers, specifiers and contractors, all of whom are key contacts involved in the selection of tunnel segment gaskets”. Jim Shaw added “Another  main benefit of the conference is that it attracts key personnel not only from the Emirates, but also from surrounding countries where we are looking to secure projects and increase our representation network”.
