The Big 5 Show

MEASA's most extensive and influential construction event

The Big 5 Show has been the go-to international trade fair for building and construction industry professionals looking towards glimpsing the future and position themselves in the competitive markets in the Middle East. The trade fair has built a solid reputation as a strong procurement platform with cross-border appeal since its official opening in 1980. It’s been so successful that it has managed to branch off into fairs under the same name in Saudi Arabia, East Africa, Morocco, Egypt, and Nigeria. There’s a lot of ground to cover in terms of product portfolio, so as the name says, the show floor is broken into five main zones. Visitors can explore the full value chain at MEP Services, Building Interiors & Finishes, Building Envelope & Special Construction, Construction Tools & Building Materials, and Construct Technologies & Building Automation.

The Big 5 Show arrives annually in Dubai, United Arab Emirates to showcase the next generation of materials, equipment, and machinery. Editions are held at Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre - Dubai World Trade Centre at the end of November and programming goes on for a total of four days. The main role as organizer falls to dmg :: events Middle East, but with the more than generous support of the Dubai Municipality, the Ministry of Electricity and Water, the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Federation of VAE and Department of Economic Development. The official working hours are from 11:00 am until 19:00 pm and only professionals are admitted through the gates. Now let’s discuss commuting in Dubai. The easiest way to get to the Dubai World Trade Centre is to rely on the metro system, which is extensive and one of the fastest in the world.

“If a company has a popular product and has a desire to develop and grow in the MENA region, then exhibiting at The Big 5 is a must,” said Eldar Ibragimov, CEO, KAPELLI;

“The Big 5 is one of the best and most important events in the Middle East and Asia regions. Who’s who of the construction industry shows up here, including a lot of vendors and potential customers,” said Ash Bhardwaj, President, Katerra;

“Networking is a big part of the Big 5 and being among the thought leaders and industry professionals is extremely important to us,” said Mohammad Saleh, Regional Manage Middle East, Audiodesk.

The Big 5 Show rewards its exhibitors. It currently holds the title as the biggest construction event in the Middle East, so naturally, all the most significant players gravitate towards this trade fair first. This is seen in the numbers, which show over 2500 international exhibitors and more than 66,000 industry insiders. In total that’s 134 countries represented currently. That’s enough to open you up to new regions altogether. The biggest buyers do come from the United Emirates and Saudi Arabia, but you also have markets such as Pakistan, China, and India present. We also need to see who are the visitors that attend The Big 5. The group is varied and features not only experts but also many decision-makers. We are talking about engineers, distributors, architects, consultants, project managers, contractors, c-level leaders, and procurement professionals.
