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.
