More than 350 local and international brands from the heavy construction industry will exhibit at The Big 5 Heavy, which will be held next month (March 26 to 28) in Dubai, UAE.

To be staged at the Dubai World Trade Centre, The Big 5 Heavy is the largest dedicated heavy construction industry exhibition in the region. Organised by dmg events Middle East, Asia and Africa, it is a re-launch of the Middle East Concrete and PMV Live events.

Richard Pavitt, event director of The Big 5 Heavy 2018, foresees that “harnessing the reputation of the largest construction show in Middle East, The Big 5, and focusing it on a specific sector will bring exhibitors face-to-face with a high number of solely dedicated customers.”

The event will showcase innovative solutions and products clustered into five product sectors: Middle East Concrete, PMV Live, Foundations and Geotechnical, Mining and Quarrying, and Road Construction.

“More than just an exhibition, The Big 5 Heavy will also offer a broad educational agenda with free-to-attend CPD (Continuing Professional Development)-certified workshops, as well as the ACI Concrete Essentials Seminar Series held by the American Concrete Institute,” the spokesman said.

Caterpillar and Al Bahar have chosen the Big 5 Heavy to showcase their latest products for the construction and infrastructure in the Middle East, and are expected to have the biggest stand at the exhibition.
