The confidence in the building and construction market demonstrated at The Big 5 2012, which took place in November at the Dubai World Trade Center in the United Arab Emirates (see photo gallery), has propelled the event’s expansion across the Middle East and India.
As a total of 2,371 exhibitors, from 60 countries showcased the latest products and technologies from across the building and construction industry, millions of dollars worth of deals were reported from the exhibition floor.
Two new events
“The Big 5 2012 appears to have set a precedent for the market, and generated a significant amount of optimism and enthusiasm for the year ahead,” says Andy White, event director, The Big 5. “Having such a well established reputation, with more than 30 years in the region, The Big 5 will see substantial expansion in 2013 with the launch of two new events and further growth of the Saudi event (9-12 March), which has doubled in size year-on-year since 2011.”
The Big 5 Construct India and The Big 5 Kuwait will both launch in September 2013, taking place from 2-4 in Mumbai and 16-18 in KuwaitCity respectively.
The Big 5 2013 will take place from 25-28 November at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
“Two thousand and thirteen will very much be a milestone year for The Big 5, with two new events and phenomenal growth in Saudi,” concluded White.
