Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 27 October 2021: The 2022 edition of The Big 5, The Middle East, Africa and South Asia’s (MEASA) largest and most influential event for the construction industry, will return to its traditional end of year dates.
The Big 5 in 2022, the 42nd Edition, will take place from 5th to 8th December at Dubai World Trade Centre.
The decision by dmg events to position The Big 5 back on its traditional timelines comes after a hugely successful return to face-to-face business in September this year.
After a 22-month break, thanks to the support of the Dubai government in reopening for international events, The Big 5 was the only major construction event of 2021. Heralding the return to live events it welcomed more than 36,000 industry professionals and reconnected the region’s engineers, architects, contractors, and project managers with 1,200-plus exhibitors from more than 50 countries.
“After a tumultuous two years and following the success of the Big 5 in 2021 we anticipate the worldwide construction events calendar will return to full swing in 2022,” said Matt Denton, President of dmg events. “It is therefore in the best interest of our exhibitors, country pavilions and stakeholders to return The Big 5 to our traditional datelines to fit in with that global calendar. These familiar end of year dates will ensure exhibitors from around the world can visit Dubai for a productive event, at the most convenient time.”
“The Dubai government’s COVID-19 response allowed us to connect construction players, despite the pandemic’s impact,” said Denton. “We look forward to staying front of market and to delivering the best possible event for all our stakeholders.”
