26 – 29 MARCH 2018 DUBAI WORLD TRADE CENTRE
Carolina Bronze Sculpture is one of four NC businesses sharing a booth at INDEX Dubai 2018 in Dubai, UAE. The booth is sponsored by the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina for manufacturing companies looking to export to the Middle East market. We will be promoting our foundry business as well as high end sculpture sales for both interior and exterior projects in the private, corporate, government, public and hotel hospitality sector. Our focus will be on abstract, figurative and animal sculptures in all media.
Launched in 1990, INDEX is the Middle East & North Africa’s largest gathering for the design community. INDEX connects architects, interior designers, developers & procurement professionals with new brands, trend setting start-ups & the biggest international names in the interior furnishings & fit-out scene across all industries.
We are looking for sculptors to participate in this venture with us. During the trade show, we will have both digital and print samples of sculpture for sale as well as the sculpture that is
represented on our sculpture garden website. We are also looking into shipping some small sculptures to display in the booth. We will be meeting with numerous potential buyers before and after the trade show in a one on one setting, with a translator if needed.
If you are interested in having your sculpture represented by Carolina Bronze, during and after this trade show, please contact Melissa Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org for information and requirements no later than March 2.

Sand molds are $30 per block and all tools and metal will be provided. Bring your own sand molds and have them poured for the cost of the metal. Molds can be carved from 11-3pm and will be poured at 3pm.
Please RSVP if you plan on creating or bringing a sand mold to email@example.com.
The sculpture garden will be open for tours on your own. We have an audio tour available at uniguide.me. If you are interested in learning about the sculptures and many of the plants in the garden, download the app to your phone and type in Carolina Bronze.
