The Big 5, the largest and most influential construction event in the Middle East, is coming back under the theme “Shaping the future of construction”.

It will introduce never seen before technologies and innovative solutions, shed light on rising entrepreneurs that promise to disrupt the construction sector, as well as on the women that are pushing the industry forward. On its 39th edition, the show will once again pave the way for new partnerships, boost investments and connect professionals from around the world, in Dubai.  

Next to the Live Innovation Zone, selected start-ups in the construction industry will display the technologies and solutions that will revolutionize tomorrow’s built environment: The Big 5 Start-up City will gather the next construction tech disruptors, a selection of rising stars that will soon make an impact in the field. In order to support these innovative entrepreneurs, The Big 5 will offer a prize to the most innovative start-up, which will be selected by a panel of judges through an exciting competition. 

The event will feature the first FutureTech Construction Summit on November 26. The conference will be fully dedicated to exploring future trends and technologies through case studies, panel discussions and thought-provoking presentations. Under the theme of “Empowering Innovation in the Construction Ecosystem”, the Summit will unveil how construction industry professionals can achieve higher productivity, greater sustainability and enhanced affordability in their projects with the help of technology. 

The popular Big 5 CPD-certified and free to attend workshops will come back this year, running in four dedicated theatres as BIM Talks, Architecture Talks, Project Management Talks and Design Talks. The “How to Do Business in the UAE” Seminar in partnership with Dubai South Business Park will provide terrific value and business intelligence to exhibitors and visitors interested in navigating the burgeoning UAE construction market.
