The brains behind Middle East Concrete and PMV Live are confident that their exhibitions will cater to requirements related to the extension of Dubai Metro.

The shows will be collocated with The Big 5 2016, which will take place in Dubai next week.

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) expects to extend Dubai Metro’s tracks to 110km by 2020, and to 421km by 2030.

To date, $8bn (AED29.4bn) has been invested into the construction of Dubai Metro.

The growth and popularity of the transport system will lead to additional multimillion-dollar contract awards for GCC construction outfits, many of which are expected to attend Middle East Concrete and PMV Live.

James Meltz, event director for Middle East Concrete and PMV Live, said: “The Dubai Metro has been a huge success since its inception, and this can only be good news for the infrastructure sector, with many more projects on the horizon.

“Infrastructure experts believe that Dubai offers a model for other cities in the region to follow. The system is tailored to the needs of the city, and the step-by-step approach to construction has proved to be a very sensible one,” he added.

The shows will host 430 exhibitors from 40 countries, offering an industry showcase for technologies that can help infrastructure companies to save money and energy, and reduce emissions and waste.

The Big 5 2016 will take place at Dubai World Trade Centre from 21-14 November.
