What an incredible journey this has been!

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the first Big 5 Digital Festival, and everyone who made this possible: speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, attendees, partners, really thank you.

Over the four days of the event, thousands of experts and industry professionals tuned-in from around the world to restart business together, to get a clear vision of what’s next in construction and the economy at large, to build strategic connections, and be inspired by powerful ideas.

2020 has been a challenging year, but the time to reconnect, to meet again in person, is finally in sight.

The Big 5 in 2021 will be the start of a new beginning, and it will be fantastic to see you all there again, as a community of inspiring, resilient and enduring professionals.

So see you at The Big 5 2021, from 12 to 15 September, to build a better future together.
