A total of 558 exhibitors have booked prime space at this year’s edition of the Saudi Build in a bid to tap the lucrative opportunities the booming Saudi construction market is now offering as the kingdom pushes ahead with its ambitious Vision 2030 programme.
The 32nd edition of Saudi Arabia’s premier construction showcase is set to take place this month (November 14 to 17) in the kingdom’s capital city and will cover six halls at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Saudi Build 2022 will put the spotlight on the products and services of these exhibitors from 42 countries around the globe over 13,400 sq m of exhibition space. A total of 13 countries will also host their own national pavilions and these include Russia, Belgium, Italy, Pakistan, China, Egypt, Germany, Qatar, Malaysia, South Korea, Türkiye, Austria and the UAE.
Saudi Build 2022 has the patronage of HE Majid Al-Hogail, the Minister of Municipal and Rural Affairs and Housing, says Mohammed Al Hussaini, CEO, Riyadh Exhibitions Company (REC), the organiser of the event.
Among the sectors covered by Saudi Build are construction and building materials; construction technologies and services; interior design and finishing; heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC); stone industry and technology; and plant, heavy machinery and vehicles (PMV).
The event comes at an opportune time for the Saudi construction sector which is looking to procure products and services for the numerous giga and mega projects which are now poised to take shape around the kingdom. In line with Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia is investing heavily in infrastructure, and construction of ports, railways, airports, and roads to enhance the kingdom’s interconnectivity and facilitate the flow of raw materials and human resources.
“This exhibition comes at a time when the Saudi construction sector is witnessing significant growth. With more than 5,000 construction projects planned in the kingdom for this year alone, Saudi Build 2022 will be an ideal platform for the local and global construction community to build partnerships and explore the huge opportunities offered by the construction sector in the country,” adds Al Hussaini.
The gold sponsors of the event include Saudi Ceramic, Milano Concetto, Gold Art, Oil Sustainability Program, and Saudi Contractors Authority (SCA). The exhibition is held concurrently with Saudi Stone Tech, Saudi Build PMV Series, and Saudi Elenex, making it a unique dedicated construction sector platform that will provide opportunities and business prospects for investors who are eager to enter the Saudi market.
“Saudi Build 2022 will display innovative building technologies and solutions, inspiring advancement in the building sector, and will feature state-of-the-art technologies in the field of materials science. We look forward to welcoming local, regional, and international companies who will undoubtedly take advantage of the 32nd edition of the event to network with industry influencers, decision-makers, and professionals to drive their business development and growth prospects in the kingdom’s rapidly expanding construction sector,” concludes Al Hussaini.
