ABOUT INTERIOR DESIGN OMAN

Interior Design Oman (IDO) is a décor, design and lifestyle exhibition happening alongside The BIG Show Oman. It covers the spectrum of products and services required for the design, fit out, and upgrade of residential, hospitality, office, and retail spaces.

It will introduce three sub-sectors: Artisan, which features a variety of designer, modern, and ethnic handmade crafts and objets d’art; Contemporary Collection, which focuses on contemporary furniture design; and Sleep, which showcases bedding, mattresses, linen, and related furnishing, fittings and accessories.


The significance of organizing IDO in Oman

Oman is experiencing a surge of investment in tourism, hospitality and infrastructure, which are, in turn, contributing to the expansion of the building, construction and interior design industry. Interior design is presently benefitting from these ever-expanding markets, which are now billion-dollar industries. A large percentage of budgets and investment are being directed towards the interiors and interior products and services segment, resulting from the influx of new luxury, boutique, high-end retailers and property. In recent years, the rise in the number of 3- 4- and 5-star hotels, shopping malls, restaurants, leisure facilities and entertainment centers, and the construction of the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre, set to be the hub for MICE in the Middle East region, has paved the way for increasing requirements for the design community.
