It has been confirmed that the leading international exhibitions company dmg events will be launching its Big 5 Construct event in Cairo in 2018. The event will be held at the New Cairo Exhibition Centre on 15-17 September 2018 and will showcase innovative products, technologies and services of hundreds of exhibitors.

 “With $140bn worth of projects awarded and due for construction, Egypt, and its 93 million people, represents a market with huge potential for the industry,” said Andy White, Senior Vice President of Construction at dmg events.

This year, the event will be held in Dubai, featuring a number of major players throughout the construction industry. Companies such as Assa Abloy, Danube, Gulf Construction and Saint Gobain attended the event in 2016, with many national and international players expected to attend the event in Dubai this year and in Cairo. Educational workshops will also be provided at these events, suitable for all workers within construction, building and design.

With over $100 billion reserved for a number of residential and infrastructural projects, international exhibitors are set to flock to the capital. “It’s figures like these that have helped to convince our base of international exhibitors that Egypt will be one of the fastest growing export markets for their international operations over the next two years,” commented White.

Matt Denton – President, dmg events said, “The Big 5 has run successfully in Dubai for more than 30 years. The new launch into Egypt, a rapidly expanding construction market where our brand is already really well known, seems like a very natural progression.”
