The inaugural Jeddah Construct, a key industry event that aims to propel the Saudi port city’s rapidly transforming building and construction sector, will open its doors next year, attracting over 4,000 construction professionals and decision makers, according to dmg events, the organiser.

The event, which caters to the kingdom’s Western Province, will run from September 29 to October 1, 2024 at the Jeddah International Exhibition and Convention Centre.

The expo, which comes as part of dmg events’ phased expansion plan, is the newest addition to its list of trade exhibitions.

The launch of Jeddah Construct expo (powered by Big 5 Construct Saudi, the largest construction event in the country running for the past 10 years), follows the successful introduction of other targeted shows in the kingdom by dmg events such as the Saudi Wood expo, the Saudi Warehousing and Logistics expo and the Saudi Hospital Design and Build expo.

The event will have the Saudi Contractors Authority (SCA), which operates under the supervision of the Ministry of Municipal, Rural Affairs and Housing, as a supporting partner. 

“In 2011, the inaugural Big 5 Construct Saudi took place in Jeddah. Although it later moved to Riyadh, the overwhelming regional demand from the kingdom’s Western Province has now prompted us to embrace our shared history and launch Jeddah Construct, a dedicated event for the Western Province powered by Big 5 Construct Saudi,” stated Ben Greenish, Senior Vice President, dmg events.
