Hansgrohe returns to the show this month, having received enthusiastic response to its participation in the Hotel Show in Saudi Arabia last year.
“We garnered fantastic feedback from both visitors and partners after our participation last year. This marked our inaugural exhibition in Saudi Arabia, where our primary objective was to convey our commitment to water,” Al Ahmed commented.
“Reuniting with everyone in person following the pandemic was truly heartening. The exhibition served as a remarkable platform to unveil our cutting-edge innovations and novel offerings, allowing us to engage effectively with our esteemed clients,” he added.
