November 2020

The Big 5 Saudi, the leading construction event in the kingdom, will be held in Riyadh next year for the first time, according to the organiser dmg Events. To be held from May 24 to 27 at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Centre, it will run alongside new co-located events, namely FM Expo Saudi, Saudi Clean Expo, HVAC R Expo Saudi and Stone and Surface Saudi Arabia.

Now in the capital, the expo can effectively drive vital business connections and Vision 2030 objectives, while supporting recovery efforts following Covid-19, said dmg Events.

Ben Greenish, Senior Vice President at dmg events, commented: “We are delighted to confirm new dates for The Big 5 Saudi, and to announce that the event will be held in Riyadh for the first time in 2021. At a time when construction developments and the business landscape are rapidly changing, we look forward to providing a safe environment where the industry can connect, kick-start business, and drive growth.

“It is our hope that both the discussions and the partnerships made at the event are going to have a long-term impact on the future outlook of Saudi Arabia’s $1.4-trillion projects market.”

The Big 5 Saudi returns next year with new co-located events and added features designed to represent and celebrate the construction sector in its entirety, according to dmg Events. Alongside seven general construction product sectors, the event introduces a number of co-located events covering facility management, HVAC and the stone and surfacing sectors.

Furthermore, ‘The Big 5 Saudi Impact Awards’ will be launched at the 2021 edition to honour the people, organisations, and projects driving transformation in the kingdom’s construction industry. Free and certified education sessions continue at the event, set to help professionals keep up with the latest industry trends and standards, the organiser added.

To ensure the construction community can meet, network, and do business in a safe environment at the event, the ‘dmg events All Secure’ set of safety protocols for exhibitors and visitors will be implemented, following guidelines from UFI, the global association for the exhibition industry’s international standards and in collaboration with the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Centre, and the kingdom’s authorities.

The Big 5 Saudi is supported by Katerra (Platinum Sponsor), Al Bawani Contracting (Contracting Sponsor), Al Latifa Trading & Contracting Company (Gold Sponsor), and Oscar Paints (Official Paint Sponsor).
