Domo Sports Grass will be exhibiting its latest products at The Big 5 Construct Nigeria this September. We spoke to the company's Sales Manager Africa, Yessine Ben Hamida; here's what he told us as he prepares to participate at the largest construction event in Nigeria.
What products will you be showcasing at the event?
Artificial grass for sports applications: soccer, rugby, tennis, multisport and hockey.
What value do these products bring to the region’s construction industry?
Natural grass needs a lot of maintenance and water. Synthetic grass is therefore an optimal substitute for it. Since there is a scarcity of water in the world, and especially in Africa, artificial grass is a very good alternative to natural grass.
We are exhibiting at this exhibition because we expect participating companies will be the constructors of new stadiums and sports fields where eventually our products will be used.
On that, can you share your outlook on the Nigerian construction industry:
Why is it important for you to do business in the region?
Nigeria is one of the fastest growing markets in West-Africa and Africa. By choosing Nigeria, we aim at the heart of Africa because of its big and diverse population and central position in the continent.
At Domo Sports Grass, we believe that today is the right moment to invest big here.
What is unique about the Nigerian industry compared to other regions?
Nigeria has a population of almost 200 million inhabitants and is a country that loves soccer. Their strategic position with the ports also plays a big role in choosing this country as our new target market.
Finally, how will it benefit customers to see you at the event?
It will help them to meet us in person and clear their doubts. It will also be enrich for them to meet one of the largest artificial grass companies in the world known to be FIFA’s (the International Football Federation) and FIH’s (International hockey federation) preferred producers.
