The Big 5 closes after successful 4 days
Dubai, November 25, 2010
The Big 5, the Middle East’s largest event for the building and construction industry, finished on a high after a successful four days at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
The event hosted over 2,500 exhibitors from 70 countries who showcased the latest in technology and services from all sectors of the building and construction markets.
Expo organisers dmg are launching their new event in February next year, The Big 5 Saudi, which has been sold out since October of this year.
“Initial feedback from both visitors and exhibitors is that this year has been a great success. Footfall has been consistent and we have had the right people walking through the door. Exhibitors have been forthcoming with news and announcements, and we have seen a number of new technologies, from both regional and international companies, launched here this week,” said Andy White, event director of The Big 5.
“We are looking forward to The Big 5 Saudi, our first Big 5 outside the UAE, and the response to this new event has been phenomenal. Having sold out a brand new exhibition four months in advance highlights the business in the industry and the increasing strength of Saudi and the opportunities in the Western Province.”
The Big 5 Saudi will be hosted in collaboration with MICE Arabia Group (MAG) supported by the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce.
Running from February 27 to March 2, at the Jeddah Centre for Forums and Events, over 200 exhibitors from 25 countries will be looking to access the Saudi market, which has an anticipated $420 billion of projects currently underway and an impressive pipeline for the upcoming five years.-TradeArabia News Service
