Exhibitor Testimonials


For the Chartered Institute of Building The Big 5 Event is an ideal opportunity for us to encourage new members into the institute which will help raise the overall image of construction through learning events such as continuous professional development, and work with these members towards chartered membership.

Manager – Middle East, The Chartered Institute of Building

Portobello is a Brazilian company that exports to more than 70 companies around the world, and we decided to come to The Big 5 this year because there is strong business potential; many projects use Portobello tiles, such as The Palm and Ibn Battuta Mall.

This is our second consecutive time, everything looks great this year, and everyone that comes has very positive things to say so we are very happy to be participating in The Big 5 again.

Visitor Testimonials 


It was a great opportunity to be a part of the major event of the construction industry; especially as it was more competitive and well-organized more than ever.
The huge number of exhibitors and the wide range of products provided me with all the necessary information about the market, and were more than sufficient to achieve my goals from the event.

I decided to visit The Big 5 to check for products that we have difficulty in finding in the local market as well as to have more options for suppliers for the same item, as well as check for new products in the market.

I visited The Big 5 to help my awareness of the latest products and new technology. The Big 5 is the best platform to network and upgrade our career. I was pleased with the CPD seminars and I will return next year. It was a fantastic opportunity.

Speaker Testimonials


The best thing about The Big 5 for me is the sheer scale, the enormity of it; the fact that most the industry are here networking together.

Julie Kortens

Chairman, British Institute of Facilities Management

What I love about The Big 5 is that there are over 75 free educational workshops, so its not just about exhibitions and people demonstrating their products and services. People are learning and they’re able to take knowledge away from the show.
