Record attendance anticipated at next week's Big 5

adipecMiddle East Concrete and PMV Live are the region’s meeting points for heavy construction machinery, plant equipment, commercial and construction vehicles, and concrete. (Image source: The Big 5)The Big 5, along with co-located shows Middle East Concrete and PMV Live, will host more than 2,700 exhibitors from across 60 countries, with 25 per cent of participants set to exhibit for the first time

The Big 5, Middle East Concrete and PMV Live will take place from 17-20 November 2014 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

A report released by the organisers stated that the GCC countries will be awarded with construction contracts worth US$195.67bn this year, which is up by almost US$35bn compared to 2013. The events' organiser believes the region's construction sectors hold a lot of potential to develop quickly in the coming years.

Andy White, group event director for The Big 5, said that The Big 5 2013 attracted more than 74,000 industry professionals from 124 countries. He added that he expected this number to increase by a larger percentage this year.

“The programme has increased our audience appeal and attracts a more diverse group of visitors. This year, there will be 55 CPD certified workshops, allowing attendees to learn at the show and earn professional recognition,” White said.

The four-day workshop will be attended by specialists who will discuss green buildings, project management, PPP financing and contract resolution. A two-day ‘Sustainable Design and Construction Conference’ will also be held on the second and third days of the event.

Mario Seneviratne, managing director of Green Technologies, said, “The sophistication of the industry and the requirements of clients for higher levels of buildings, products and services has certainly increased in pace and complexity. Sustainability has quickly picked up in the region, especially in the UAE, and we continue to see major advances in green buildings.”

A one-day conference called ‘How to Trade’ will also be held on the third day of the show. Adil Al Zarooni, vice-president of sales at Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA), will be one of the key speakers at the conference, providing an insight into how free zones work and how foreign companies can enjoy unrestricted labour import and capital export.
