Additionally, it presents over 50,000 products and solutions, featuring both established and new-to-show brands from around the world.
The Big 5 Global event is not just about exhibitions; it fosters thought leadership and provides a platform for industry leaders, experts, innovators, and practitioners to discuss and drive the regional construction market forward. In 2023, the event includes the Big 5 Global Leaders’ Summit, Big 5 FutureTech Summit, and Big 5 Talks, covering diverse streams like Project Management, Concrete, Geotechnical, Architecture, Solar, Facilities Management, and more.
