Participation at 2015 edition of Dubai event set to rise 6% to 85,000 visitors Participation at this year’s The Big 5 International Building & Construction Show, which kicks off on Monday, is set to rise 6% to 85,000 participants, organisers said. The Middle East’s largest construction show is expected to include participants from across the world, with the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Iran, India, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Egypt and Pakistan the top countries by representation. A strong European presence is also expected at the trade show, with Italy, Germany, Spain, Greece, and the UK ranked among the top exhibitor countries. A total of about 3,000 exhibitors will demonstrate construction products at the 2015 edition of The Big 5, which runs from November 23 to 26 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. “While other events in the region may focus on real estate or property development, The Big 5 spans the entire construction industry, from inception to design and construction,” said Nathan Waugh, Event Director of the two co-located shows, Middle East Concrete and PMV Live. “With tighter budgets and greater demand on profit margins, the chance to be able to witness products, technologies, heavy machinery, and other equipment is important,” he added.
