Before discovering the oil in the late 50’s Abu Dhabi, Dubai and other emirates’ main source of revenue was pearl fishing. Nowadays the UAE’s economy has been built on trade, of course boosted by the massive wealth accumulated through oil & gas.
UAE, however, does not want to remain dependent on the oil and gas industry, and this is why the atmosphere is favorable for international business development and expansion. For all this, The Big 5 exhibition is more attractive than ever – it is the largest and the most important construction industry exhibition in the Middle East, and can be described as the modern pearl of Dubai.
Also the UAE’s appeal as a steady and safe destination helps to strengthen its attractiveness to investors.
The growth of the UAE economy since 2011 has given a boost to many construction projects. In the coming years the whole Middle East region, but especially the GCC countries are about to make substantial investments in infrastructure, energy and construction projects.
In particular, the new regulations for promoting sustainable development in construction offer entirely new possibilities for producers of energy-saving materials and products and for suppliers of new ecological solutions.
“The main growth appears to be coming from the general construction sector, with project types including commercial and residential units, education, health care and hospitality buildings, leisure and recreation facilities, religious buildings, retail facilities and mixed use urban development. The total value of these general construction projects is around USD 319.8 billion, which makes up approximately 77% of all project values in Dubai”. – BNC Network Dubai Construction Market 2016 Report
Dubai’s attractiveness will be further enhanced by the World Expo, which will be held in the city in 2020.
The BIG 5-event for its part has performed for many years as a great networking place for construction industry professionals to explore new products and industry trends. The 2016 event promises to be even bigger and better than ever before, and will see professionals from multiple disciplines from the construction industry attend the show.
