Big 5 Heavy rejoins parent expo
The Big 5 Heavy and Middle East Concrete spin-off exhibitions have been reintegrated with The Big 5 expo, to be held on 26-29 November 2018
The Big 5 Heavy was created as a dedicated event for the heavy construction industry to cover the early construction cycle from breaking ground, drilling, producing building materials, through to earthmoving and lifting. The inaugural edition of the event was held on 26-28 March 2018 in Dubai. However, the spinoff has been shortlived as Dmg Events, the organisers of the expo has announced that henceforth The Big 5 Heavy and Middle East Concrete exhibitions will be co-located with The Big 5 expo.
The 2018 edition of The Big 5 will be held on 26-29 November at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The Big 5 2018 will also include other expos such as The Big 5 Solar, HVACR Expo, and the Urban Design & Landscaping Expo.
Richard Pavitt, event director, The Big 5 Heavy, said: “Following on from the success of The Big 5 Heavy this year, the industry shows a clear demand for the PMV, commercial vehicles, foundations & geotechnical, quarrying & mining, road construction, and site equipment industries. As the demand continues to grow, we're delighted to announce that the show will now feature as part of The Big 5 Dubai. The introduction of The Big 5 Heavy will create one mega construction event for the industry to source products for the construction cycle, from concept through to completion, under one roof.”
