Dedicated USA pavilion among new features
The Big 5, the region’s largest construction show, returns to Saudi Arabia next month for the second time.
Building on the success of last year, The Big 5 Saudi 2012 is twice the size of last year and will also feature an outdoor area. Similarly to the Dubai show, held annually in November, there will be dedicated concrete and FM zones and outdoor PMV demonstrations and workshops.
Educational seminars will focus on issues concerning LEED regulations and concrete repair.
“We want to create a platform for the industry that provides access to the opportunities that the Saudi market presents now and for the upcoming years,” commented Andy White, event director for both the Jeddah and Dubai exhibitions.
“The support for The Big 5 Saudi 2011, together with the event being recognised as the Best Trade Event 2011 at the Middle East Event Awards in its first year, has given us a very stable and promising foundation from which the event can grow,” White added.
US$108,156m worth of construction to take place in Saudi Arabia in 2012 – an increase of over $7.1m from two previous years, according to a report by Ventures Middle East.
The show will take place at Jeddah Centre for Forums and Events from 10-13 March 2012.
