Saudi Arabia makes up almost 39% of GCC projects

Country’s construction sector expected to grow by almost 7.2% in 2014

Saudi Arabia is one of the most lucrative construction markets in the Middle East, accounting for almost 39% of GCC projects.

The country’s construction sector is expected to grow by almost 7.2% in 2014, driven by huge government investments into the development of large-scale infrastructure and construction projects.

With a gradual easing of labour and material shortages during the second half of 2014, Saudi’s construction sector is predicted to further its ongoing growth during 2015 onwards.

To be held from 10-13 November at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Centre, Saudi Build 2014 – the 26th International Construction Technology and Building Materials Trade Show - will present an eyed platform to position the KSA as the biggest construction market in the region.

The show will gather international and local companies over four days to showcase the latest industry solutions to the local and regional markets. Visitors can get deeper insights on the top products and cutting edge technologies, including aluminium frames and structures, architectural finishing products, building materials, ceramic tiles, concrete products and precast structures, construction systems, engineering and design services, environment protection equipment, landscaping and garden ornaments, security and safety tools and systems, water and heat insulation, and steel and wood products, among others.

Approved by UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, Saudi Build 2014 will be held concurrently with Saudi Stonetech 2014 – the 17th International Stone and Stone Technology Exhibition, and Saudi Build PMV Series – the 5th International Exhibition for Construction Equipment, Plant, Machinery, and Vehicles.

The industry leading show registered a footfall of around 23,000 professional visitors during its last edition to overview top-notch offerings from over 850 exhibitors from 36 countries.
