The 2,500 exhibitors at The Big 5 2011, have been keen to discuss developments in the market and the activities they have been undertaking by announcing new contracts and products at the show.
Technology company, Elematic, announced a deal with SMEET Precast to provide a complete precast 300,000 sqm factory in Qatar, delivering machinery, equipment, software, and services for production of all structural parts (e.g. hollow-core slabs, walls, columns, beams and staircases). Swiss-based Sterilios Group unveiled its ground-breaking anti-bacterial product Microsilver, which is designed to kill bacteria without causing environmental damage.
Dubai’s own Emirates Building Systems unveiled its range of new industrial products this week, citing The Big 5 as providing “a unique opportunity to explore alliances and investment opportunities.” Similarly, global adhesives manufacturer, Mapei, unveiled its new Ultralite S1 cementitious adhesive. The “next-generation adhesive” is designed to bond all types and sizes of ceramic tiles and natural stones on internal and external surfaces, as well as thin porcelain gres tiles on floors and walls, including external façade.
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.
