Barrel Sauna in Dubai
I am pleased to say that Almost Heaven Saunas has just established our first distributor in the Middle East, located in Dubai. This event occurred at the Middle East Pool and Spa show, located in Dubai this past week. We displayed our popular Barrel Sauna, and the response to our products was unbelievable.
At first glance it might seem odd exhibiting and outdoor sauna at a show in a region where the temperature rarely dips below 100F. However, while this particular show is located in Dubai (part of the United Arab Emirates) it draws prospective customers from Russia, Eastern Europe, India, Turkey and more. Our goal was to establish a distributor in this part of the world where our saunas can be stocked and used to service customers within the region. Mission accomplished!
Most people expect quality, but in this part of the world, quality is demanded and there is no room for anything less than the best. So, we were flattered but not surprised at the attention we received for our cedar saunas. Our outdoor sauna designs are perfect for all regions in the world, and are especially popular for those wanting a quality, handcrafted product. While the show was moderately attended, there were rarely times where our stand was not packed with people. Prospective customers want to inspect the sauna in close detail, and we allow the buyers to enter the sauna and inspect it first hand.
While in Dubai I was able to tour just a bit, and I toured the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, and visited a Sauk marketplace in the center of Dubai. My hosts were unbelievably accommodating, extremely friendly, and everyone from the hotel workers to convention center hosts, were terrific! I want to thank my associates at the ME Pool & Spa Show for their professional assistance and hospitality. The Middle East is now home to Almost Heaven Saunas! Next stop… the Interbad Show in Stuttgart, Germany!
