Organiser says free-to-attend seminars will make the event an indispensable part of the industry’s calendar
The Cairo Exhibition Centre will play host to The Big 5 Construct Egypt next year, as per dmg events Middle East, Asia & Africa, the organisers of the construction exhibition. The event will highlight innovative products, services, and technologies relating to the construction industry, and the organisers expect 70% of the exhibitors to be international companies.
The exhibition will take place in 2018 from September 15 to 17, and will also focus on advancing attendee skill levels. The event caters to architects, consultants, contractors, developers and engineers, and will host free-to-attend educational seminars that will run alongside the event.
“With $140bn worth of projects awarded and due for construction, Egypt and its 93mn people represent a market with huge potential for the industry,” said Andy White senior vice president of construction at dmg events.
The event will run CPD certified workshops, which will explore issues within the Egyptian construction sector, while seminars and live demonstrations will showcase innovative solutions, and thinking around common challenges.
“The Big 5 has run successfully in Dubai for more than 30 years. The new launch into Egypt, a rapidly expanding construction market where our brand is already really well known, seems like a very natural progression for our team,” said Matt Denton, president at dmg events. “Adapting our market leading event brands to new geographies is a central strategy for dmg events as we explore fresh ways to expand our reach, while finding new audiences for our most successful exhibitions and their loyal exhibitors.”
Over the last six years Big 5 events have been rolled out in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, India, Indonesia, East Africa and North Africa.
