The region's largest machinery show is back - and it's bigger than ever.

The PMV expo is relocating to a site adjacent to the Big 5 at Dubai International Convention Centre from November 23-27, transforming the event into one of the world's largest trade shows for the construction industry and associated suppliers.

Event organisers suggest the expo will be larger than the 2007 event by at least a third.

"As the latest research shows, there has been no let up in the construction boom since last year,' said Nick Webb, director of Streamline Marketing Group, who stage PMV on behalf of Dmg World Media, the Big 5 organisers.

"It means suppliers of plant, machinery, construction vehicles and equipment are still pursuing contracts worth many billions of dollars, and we've created a platform for them to meet face to face with key buyers'.

Research by database company Proleads, which monitors regional construction projects across all industry sectors in the Middle East, shows that there are now 3,339 projects estimated to be worth in excess of $2.8 trillion underway in the region, the bulk of development taking place in the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

A massive wave of projects in the GCC, Egypt, Iraq and Libya has turned the region into the world's biggest market for plant, construction machinery, vehicles and equipment, demand for which is expected to grow by up to 20% over the next four years.

As more new airports, ports, mega resorts, theme parks, residential and commercial cities, and man-made islands take shape, industry suppliers are cashing in and they will be out in force when the Big 5 PMV relocates to Dubai Intl. Expo Centre in November.
