Helping the Middle East grow

PMV-Live-2014-Big5-DubaiThrough PMV Live, exhibitors and dealers can expect a wide array of technology, knowledge and innovation to be presented. (Image source: Saudi Railways Company)Machinery and equipment expo PMV Live will showcase the latest innovations in construction machinery, plant and vehicles at Dubai World Trade Centre

Come November, and the who’s who of the construction industry will congregate at Dubai World Trade Centre for machinery and equipment expo PMV Live, which will be held alongside The Big 5 and MEC 2014, from 17-20 November.

PMV Live will showcase the latest innovations in the field of construction machinery, plant and vehicles. The show also acts as a useful platform for industry professionals to network and exchange ideas and innovations.

Vigourous growth within the construction sector has set the precedent for shows such as PMV, which this year promises to be the largest in its history, according to organisers dmg events.

With construction projects taking the lion’s share of overall spending in the region, real estate developers and builders have been bullish about their prospects in the market.

A report by Ventures Onsite stated that there would be a huge rise in revenues in the construction sector over the next 18 months.

Despite the global financial crisis in 2009, which caused sales to fall by 34 per cent, the market for earthmoving equipment has shown a 1.67 per cent compound annual growth rate between 2008 and 2012. By 2015, the global construction equipment market is expected to rebound to an estimated market size of US$145.5bn.

Rail infrastructure in particular will be in focus as GCC states prepare to build an integrated railway network connecting all countries.

On the first day of the show, a panel session entitled Market update and future forecast of the Middle East's infrastructure sector will focus on the issues facing the region’s PMV companies.

Paul Groves, head of tunnelling and ground engineering with atkins, will present a case study on a metro project. atkins, among the leading rail sector consultancies in the Middle east, recently set up a centre of rail excellence and is involved in a number of major rail and metro projects in the uae, saudi arabia and Qatar. Atkins first developed its team seven years ago to provide multi-disciplinary design and management of the civil works on Dubai Metro.

Through PMV Live, vistitors can expect to witness the lastest technological developments and innovations presented to them by exhibitors and delegated.

Products and services showcased at PMV Live 2013 included accessories and wear parts, building material handling and packaging, civil and mechanical utilities, communication and navigation, component and service supplies, construction equipment, tools and special systems, construction machinery, vehicles, cranes, earthwork, exterior improvements and retro-fitting.
