25 - 28 November 2019

I recently shared an opinion piece on LinkedIn suggesting that the ongoing wave of digital transformation will never replace the face-to-face interaction our events offer. This is never more apparent than in our celebration of four decades of The Big 5.

Over the years we have been very fortunate with the growth of The Big 5; from a small show that started off in a striped marquee on the Dubai Creek to being one of the world’s largest building and construction events showcasing the regional construction industry.

This 40 year milestone is a great testament to how our teams have effectively worked towards keeping the show fresh and relevant for our stakeholders and attendees. Innovation and adaptability have always been at the core of our strategy as we transform each edition to keep up with the changing business environment and industry needs.

The show has continuously seen new features, country pavilions and product sectors added and with the increase in the number of exhibitors each year both local and global, The Big 5 has truly become a gateway to the region’s top buyers and distributors.
