“The solar industry in the middle east is growing rapidly every day and we feel it's good business to target all the upcoming projects in the MENA region which is why we exhibited at The Big 5 Solar. It's our first year participating and we're very happy to have met a lot of potential business and the client list we got from the event was also great.”

Rajasekhar Rongali

Business Manager , Taisei International

“After our participation in The Big 5 Solar last year, we were able to reach so many clients within and outside of the UAE. So it has been an amazing year for us. This year we brought in a new product because we believe The Big 5 Solar gives us a huge potential to showcase our products to a wide range of clients.”

Ahmad Jadallah

Managing Partner , Campion International

“Dubai has all the potential for renewable energy, which is why we decided to participate at The Big 5 Solar to showcase our products and technologies and convince the market on how they can take advantage of solar energy in the most efficient way. We made a lot of new contacts and we expect to have partnerships from this region.”

Michaloudis Michalis

Mechanical Engineer , MyTherm

“We chose to exhibit at The Big 5 Solar because it is a premier show which attracts not only visitors from Dubai, but as well as the GCC region in general. We met a lot of different contacts from all over the region and we're very happy. We think it's worth it because all we need is a few clients and we can more than cover the cost of exhibiting. ”
