​​​The Big 5 Middle East is the largest construction exhibition uniting products, suppliers and key buyers all under one roof, for four days of intense networking. Last year, the event reached its highest audience on record with 2,856 exhibitors representing 59 countries and attracting a record 78, 579 attendees.

Confirmed for 26-29 November 2017, visitors can once again expect to find products from MEP services, building interiors and finishes, special construction, tools and building materials and smart building and design technologies. This year, the expo will once again be styled with dedicated sectors across the show, making it easier for both exhibitors and buyers to conduct business, identify opportunities and manage their visit.

With a legacy spanning more than 4 decades, The Big 5 Show is renowned for the wealth of knowledge and experts it brings. This year will be no different, with more than 80 CPD certified workshops, seminars and conferences on offer by experts who will share insights, experiences and new developments from their respective fields. From lectures in construction technology to sustainability, visitors are well advised to book their participation early.

Platinum Club members can once again look forward to the same attention to detail and bespoke arrangements, as well as tailored networking opportunities. Last year, the Platinum Club brought together key buyers and products in excess of US$100 million. Members may also benefit from the Distributor’s Programme, which facilitates introductions between local distributors and international brands.

New for 2017 is the co-location of The Big 5 Solar - further solidifying the position of the Expo as the single largest gathering of both manufacturers and clients. Last year, 86% of exhibitors registered sales to new clients during the event.​
