The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, upon the initiative of WSM, the German trade association Steel and Metal Processing will sponsor a joint stand of German companies at the debut event of Big 5 Egypt. This will in particular have positive financial effects for the German participants, since government funding of this kind will reduce the exhibit fee by approximately one half. Integrated in government participation is a generously dimensioned business lounge with catering for the German exhibitors and their visitors at the fair. Participation, moreover, is simplified in terms of organization, since the German implementation company will be responsible for erecting the complete stand.
Big 5 Construct Egypt will comprise six special product sectors: Plant Machinery and Vehicles (PMV), MEP Services, Building Interiors & Finishes, Building Envelope & Special Construction, Construction Tools & Building Materials, and Construction Technology & Innovation. The fair will be accompanied by technical seminars, certified workshops and high-caliber technical conferences.
In addition to Egypt, Kenya is also an interesting market
The East African construction sector offers German companies enormous export opportunities. Big 5 Construct East Africa, which will take place from 07 to 09 November 2018 at the Kenyatta International Expo Centre in Kenya, will offer extensive opportunities to establish contact with African fair visitors from the construction industry.
In 2018, upon the initiative of the German trade association WSM, the German government will for the first time participate in Big 5 Construct East Africa in Kenya. The Federal Ministry for Economy and Energy will support German participation.
