A globally recognised brand with an international pedigree, The Big 5 portfolio has grown to become a leader in the construction industry events arena since it first launched 36 years ago.

With over 73,000 audited participants in 2015, the flagship event, The Big 5 hosted in Dubai, is now the largest and most respected construction exhibition in the Middle East & North Africa, Central and South-East Asia, providing international and local suppliers with an unrivaled opportunity to meet key regional buyers and do business.

In 2016, The Big 5 will host seventeen international events in key gateway cities across the world, bringing construction product suppliers and buyers together under one roof to showcase, examine and sign deals to acquire a raft of innovative products, as well as obtain the very latest market information.



Supporting the events portfolio, The Big 5 Hub, the industry’s most important online portal and publication for the construction industry provides readers with in-depth analysis and opinion from a network of global industry influencers. 

Our Concrete Trends publication focuses on the Cement and Concrete industry in Africa providing information on projects, products, people, countries and events.
