The Middle East’s largest construction event will take place from 12-15 September 2021 at the Dubai World Trade Centre
The Middle East’s largest construction event The Big 5, which is organised by dmg events, has been rescheduled from on 23-26 November 2020 to 12-15 September 2021 following the impact of COVID-19.
Set to take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre, dmg events said the decision to postpone this year’s event comes after a thorough consultation with key stakeholders groups.
The organiser added that the new dates is the closest possible time to ensure that the global construction industry can come together for a successful event, and prioritises the health and safety of the public.
The new dates will also apply to the events staged alongside The Big 5 show such as The Big 5 Heavy, Middle East Concrete, HVAC R Expo, Middle East Stone, The Big 5 Solar, and the Urban Design & Landscape Expo.
Commenting on the postponement, dmg events senior vice president, Ben Greenish, said: “Over the past weeks, we made it our priority to listen to our exhibitors, visitors, and other key stakeholders. We understand how crucial a successful trade event is for their businesses, and how challenging planning ahead can be in such uncertain times.”
He added: “We have therefore decided to postpone this year’s event to offer an edition of the scale and nature expected of The Big 5 in 2021, which will boost the construction sector’s recovery efforts in the post-COVID-19 era.”
