Andy White, event director, The Big 5, said: “This year’s event has grown more than seven per cent on 2010 and the activity from the exhibitors has generated a real buzz. The Big 5 started over 30 years ago in Dubai, having become something of a barometer for the industry the event provides an excellent platform for participants to showcase their products and services and ascertain the market sentiment.
