The Gig 5 Saudi expands heavy machinery offering on the back of kingdom's increasing demand for infrastructure
  • Addition of a dedicated sector for Plant Machinery & Vehicles (PMV) solutions represents the transition of future projects from design to reality in Saudi Arabia
  • 10th edition of The Big 5 Saudi will now encompass the full construction cycle by showcasing the expanded PMV sector within the venue walls and at the new outdoor area

Jeddah, KSA: dmg events LLC, the organisers of The Big 5 Saudi, have announced the addition of a new outdoor area to facilitate the increased presence of PMV and heavy machinery exhibitors at The Big 5 Saudi. Taking place at the Jeddah Centre for Forum & Events from 8 – 10 March 2020, the new Plant Machinery & Vehicles (PMV) solutions sector further cements The Big 5 Saudi’s position as a central meeting place to source everything in the construction buying cycle.

With much of the Kingdom’s US$302 billion budget earmarked for being spent on the government’s infrastructure plans in line with the Saudi Arabia 2030 Vision, key projects cited as driving the increasing demand for PMV and heavy machinery include the US$500 billion NEOM smart-city project and other key developments like King Hamad Causeway, Qiddiya, Amaala, and the Red Sea tourism project.

Event Director – The Big 5 Saudi, Roni El Haddad, said: “Now in its 10th edition, The Big 5 Saudi continues to grow and to support the country’s ambitious development goals with the introduction of a dedicated area showcasing machinery for heavy construction and infrastructure industries. The expansion comes on the back of the increasing demand for these products in the country as US$825 billion worth of future projects are planned across construction and transport sectors in particular.

“As these future projects move from the design phase to reality, and the life-cycle of the project turns towards the construction phase, the application of PMV and heavy machinery becomes a critical consideration in the building process.”

Serving the entire building cycle from the ground up, The Big 5 Saudi will host more than 250 exhibiting brands from 20 countries and showcase products across sectors including building interiors & finishes, building envelope & special construction, construction tools & building materials, construction technologies & innovations, concrete, and MEP Services. Products on display come from market heavyweights including Kanoo machinery, Saudi Diesel Machinery Company with XCMG products, Saudi Diesel Equipment Company with Doosan products, and Kice, to name a few.

The Big 5 Saudi will also offer more than 50 workshops across three theatres. Curated by industry thought leaders, these free-to-attend and CPD (continuing professional development) certified sessions educate and empower construction professionals to achieve the Saudi Vision 2030 through stimulating case studies, power keynotes and captivating debates.

The event is supported by Katerra (Platinum Sponsor), Al Bawani Contracting (Contracting Sponsor), Al Latifa Trading & Contracting Company (Gold Sponsor), and Oscar Paints (Official Paint Sponsor). The Big 5 Saudi is free-to-attend for registered visitors.
