The Big 5 Saudi, the meeting place for Saudi’s construction industry, will be moving from Jeddah city to capital Riyadh for 2021 edition.
It will be held from March 7 to 10 at the Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition Center.
Holding the event in the nation’s capital will drive vital business connections by bringing stakeholders closer to the heart of Saudi Arabia’s $1.2-trillion projects market, helping the kingdom to achieve its ambitious Vision 2030 objectives, said the organisers.
Alongside the move, the show will introduce a wealth of new value-added features for its international and local visitors/exhibitors, ensuring that the event continues to reflect the country’s growing attractiveness in the global construction area, they stated.
According to the organisers, for the first time, the 2021 edition will be co-located with Stone & Surface Saudi, and will see the urban design, landscape, and solar product sectors alongside the existing realm of product categories on offer at the event.
It will also include new features such as the ‘Festival of Construction Innovation’ and a dedicated Awards ceremony, each set to celebrate ground-breaking technologies and processes supporting the kingdom’s ambitions, they added.
Riyadh is the commercial and financial hub of Saudi Arabia, and bringing the event to the capital will allow visitors/exhibitors to elevate their business to the next level.
It has over 30 active projects worth $1 billion or more, of which $44.3 million worth of projects are in the early stages of construction, said the organisers.
More than 25% of all construction activities are taking place in Riyadh, they added.
