Canadian water rides giant ProSlide Technology, has been attending the DEAL Expo for 10 years and noted that the Middle Eastern leisure market is currently experiencing a slowdown in several territories. “The credit crunch has hit the real estate development market very hard in the UAE, with the latest protests in the Middle East not helping either,” he said. “We believe the two developing

markets in the Middle East are now Iran and Qatar.”

Severn Lamb UK-based leisure transport group Severn Lamb exhibited

at DEAL for the first time in more than six years in 2011 and managing director Patrick Lamb reflected positively on the contacts he had made throughout the exhibition. “In particular, I was pleased with the level of emails already

in my inbox upon my return to the office and responses received to date,” he told InterPark. “All indications are that the leads received were of reasonable quality.” He added: “Our objective of exhibiting at DEAL was to

promote our existing product line of people moving and engineering leisure solutions, therefore enhancing our presence in the Middle East. This was particularly relevant on this occasion, given a recent project that we have been working on in Oman for the Ministry of Tourism that is due to be delivered in June this year.”

Systems “DEAL 2011 was one of the best DEAL shows in its

history,” said Bilge Pakis, architect for Polin. “As a regular exhibitor at this show, we can easily say that not only the quantity but also the quality of the visitors was increased. “We promoted several new products, including King

Cobra, Racer Series, Splash Cinema, Surfstream and Creek Surfing this year. As a company located in the region, the Middle East leisure market has always been important for us. The importance of the region will definitely grow when we look at the quality of the visitors.”
