This year the trade exhibition hosts 20 country pavilions such as Germany, China, Greece, Italy, Türkiye, the UAE, the US and Qatar, with Egypt, Jordan, Spain and India joining the lineup for the first time. “As international presence grows at Big 5 Construct Saudi bringing together prominent industry players, it provides a collaborative platform for stakeholders to build new partnerships boosting the growth of the Kingdom’s construction sector,” added Kazi.
The growth of international presence also comes on the back of strong local support for the event as the nation’s leading construction players join the exhibitor lineup. Some of these include Al Zamil Group, a diversified company; Al Bawani, a contracting giant; Samnan Holding, a water solutions provider and Construction Product Company (CPC), a renowned supplier of finished products.
