This year’s Big 5 Construct Saudi recorded 64,331 attendees.

Next year’s Big 5 Construct Saudi is expanding into a two-week event, offering attendees more opportunities to connect and do business in the Saudi construction sector.

With over 2,000 exhibitors from more than 60 countries expected to participate in the region’s premier construction showcase, Big 5 Construct Saudi will run from February 15 to 18 with a focus on ‘Strong Foundations from Design to Build’ and again from February 24 to 27 with the theme ‘Transforming Projects from Fit-out to Services’.

“It’s the first time in the Middle East that an event will be held across two weeks and is unprecedented in Saudi Arabia’s events landscape,” stated Muhammed Kazi, the Vice President (Construction) at dmg events, the organiser.

“Focusing on the latest in construction design, materials and technologies as well as showcasing interior fit-outs and essential construction services, Big 5 Construct Saudi will shape Saudi Arabia’s construction landscape,” added Kazi.

Saudi Arabia’s largest event for the built environment will be accompanied by eight co-located events including the esteemed HVAC R Expo Saudi, Windows, Doors & Facades Event Saudi, Stone & Surface Saudi Arabia, now rebranded to Marble & Stone Saudi, and FM Expo Saudi, now with an expanded profile and renamed to Saudi FM & Clean.

Alongside the already anticipated launch of Saudi Hospital Design & Build Expo, Big 5 will also be introducing two new specialised events in the kingdom next year: Totally Concrete Saudi and Saudi Urban Design & Landscape Expo.

Totally Concrete Saudi will transform the concrete industry in the kingdom by bringing in new technologies, sustainable methods and products, dmg events said.

Separately, Saudi FM & Clean will highlight FM products and services, commercial cleaning and hygiene for residential, commercial and mixed-use facilities. Saudi Urban Design & Landscape Expo will present design, urban planning and landscape architecture professionals, said Kazi.

“The collective launch of these three shows underscore our commitment to empowering the Saudi construction market with comprehensive solutions and unparalleled opportunities for growth,” he added.

This year’s Big 5 Construct Saudi, which was held from February 26 to 29 at the Riyadh Front Exhibition & Conference Centre at Roshn Front, welcomed 64,331 attendees.
