The Big 5: Sharjah Chamber brings 11 construction companies together
SCCI and SEDC focus on promoting export of Emirati building products and enhancing growth of real estate sector
The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI), which is being represented by the Sharjah Exports and Development Centre (SEDC) has brought 11 building and construction companies from among its Chamber members to The Big 5.
The largest trade fair in the Middle East for building materials, as well as construction products and solutions – The Big 5 – is being held on 25-28 November at the Dubai World Trade Center.
The SCCI is looking to improve domestic industries and open export channels for Emirati companies into regional and international markets. The SEDC aims to explore production potential, and highlight its products to local and foreign investors.
The construction industry’s mega-event has welcomed approximately 68,000 participants, with 2,390 local and international exhibitors from 66 countries showcasing 20,000 building solutions and products.
Commenting on the opportunity created for Emirati building products in the context of a considerable hike in the export of building materials around the world, SCCI director-general, HE Mohammad Ahmed Amin Al Awadi, said: “Our participation falls within the SCCI’s strategy to diversify exports and re-exports from Sharjah and encourage the exporters to expand in the global markets by promoting their products and services in local and international forums.”
Sharing his thoughts on the impact of The Big 5 on the growth of the real estate sector, head of the exhibitions department (SEDC), Marwan Salem Al Muhairi, said: “This event is a perfect platform to establish new strategic partnerships supportive of the growth of the Emirate’s real estate sector, where the SEDC is keen on seizing such opportunities to meet with those interested in establishing or expanding their businesses, introducing the Center’s products to the potential clients in the construction sector, and learning closely about the new construction projects in the UAE and the region.”
