Big 5 to be back in 2018 with an expanded platform

DUBAI, December 14, 2017

The Big 5, the largest construction event in the Middle East, will be back next year in Dubai, UAE, with a host of new co-located events.

Against the backdrop of a successful 38th edition of the expo last year, organisers dmg events Middle East, Asia & Africa are further broadening The Big 5 offer with the addition of an all-new HVACR Expo, Urban Design & Landscaping Expo and the second edition of The Big 5 Solar.  

"Meeting the evolving demand of construction professionals is our number one priority," remarked Josine Heijmans, the portfolio event director of The Big 5.
 
"For this reason, recognising the outstanding performance of the dedicated HVACR Hall during the last edition of the show and the growing demand for energy-efficient and technologically advanced heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems in the region, we’re pleased to announce the launch of HVACR Expo in 2018," she stated.

Heijmans pointed out that outdoor specific design-and-build projects were also on the rise in the GCC, boosted by an explicit change in lifestyle and a strong call for more authentic public spaces.

"The Urban Design & Landscaping Expo will thus perfectly complement The Big 5 exhibition, providing industry professionals from around the globe an enhanced platform to source the latest solutions for the construction and maintenance of urban and green spaces, sports grounds and playgrounds," she added.

Running from November 26 to 29 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, the 39th edition of The Big 5 will provide 360-degree building solutions for both indoor and outdoor spaces, with a strong focus on technology and sustainability.

The second edition of The Big 5 Solar will run alongside the major construction event, showcasing the most advanced solar technologies to meet the growing demand of environmentally sustainable solutions in the Middle East.

Commenting on the latest edition, Heijmans said: "The record international participation at The Big 5 2017 established the event as a leading platform and a point of reference for the future of the construction industry not only in the Mena region but at a global level."

The event, which welcomed over 65,000 participants and more than 2,600 exhibitors from 64 countries, has been recognised as the most successful edition to date, thanks to its high quality in terms of both participants and features.
