The Big 5 granted us the ideal platform to enter the GCC market. Now after 3 years of exhibiting and being frequently in the region we have become a well known brand in the UAE. Without the Big 5 this would not have happened.

Jasmin Sahnow Marketing, Eurotec GmbH

We have been part of The Big 5 for years now and it has been an extremely good experience for us. It is undoubtedly the biggest convention in the UAE, which not only brings companies from the UAE but also the GCC and the wider North African region.

Francisco Castano CEO – Technal

The Big 5 Dubai Show is the place to be if you want to expand your brand awareness and sales in the Middle East region. The new floor plan organization implemented this year was a success for us, it was more easy for all the actors of the show. Great show and see you next year.
