Digital Twins, AI, Sustainability and Project management are among the key issues which will be discussed at The Big 5 next week - one of the first international 'live' events following the pandemic.

Now in its 42nd edition, The Big 5 exhibition is free to attend and runs at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) from September 12-15.

Visiting professionals including architects, engineers, contractors and project managers can connect with over 1200 exhibitors from 50 countries at the event, gaining access to the latest construction products and solutions.

Vice President at organiser dmg events, Josine Heijmans, said: “It has been some time since we have been able to welcome the industry to live in-person events and we are delighted to be back at Dubai World Trade Centre next week.

"There is no faster way to establish customer connections, reconnect with key industry stakeholders and debate future development than through face-to-face communication and the opportunity to do so couldn’t be more vital as the region’s construction sector rebounds and enters a new era.” 

Exhibitors include The Big 5 Heavy, Middle East Concrete, Windows Doors & Facades Event, Gulf Glass, HVAC R Expo, The Big 5 Solar, Middle East Stone, Urban Design & Landscape Expo, and FM Expo. 

The Big 5 incorporates a technology focus through its broad offering with features such as the all-new Digital Construction World, Intelligent Buildings and Offsite & Modular product sectors, Start-Up City, and the exclusive FutureTech Construction Summit.

The event also offers over 70 free-to-attend CPD certified talks delivered by 150 global speakers, and The Big 5 Global Construction Leaders’ Summit launches this year.

Inspire by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, The Big 5 Construction Impact Awards in its inaugural ceremony will recognise industry success across 15 categories, celebrating achievements and transformation of the sector that go beyond traditional measures of project delivery.

The Big 5 provides a safe environment for face-to-face business following the dmg 'All Secure' protocol and in collaboration with DWTC and local health authorities. The UAE has vaccinated 18,558,216 people according to latest figures.
