The role of technology on today’s construction sites is becoming more prevalent as project owners race against time constraints and increasing demand for cost efficiency. In response, The Big 5 Heavy exhibition will return this November with an all new product sector dedicated to Construction Technology.
The Big 5 Heavy, the region’s only event dedicated to the heavy construction industry, returns to Dubai World Trade Centre from 25 – 28 November 2019. The event will feature the all new Construction Technology product sector complimented by the first Geospatial Leaders’ Conference.
The Big 5 Heavy will host exhibitors across four more products sectors including Plant Machinery Vehicles, Lifting, Materials Handling & Transportation, Subsurface, Quarrying & Mining, and Site Equipment.
Richard Pavitt, Event Director, The Big 5 Heavy, said: “The heavy construction market is becoming increasingly reliant on software platforms that save time and cost at the beginning of build, and that create efficiencies for the full lifecycle of projects thereafter. With the introduction of the Construction Technology sector at The Big 5 Heavy, we will bring together solution providers that are best in class from around the world, to help contractors across the Middle East adopt new industry standards as soon as building begins”.
Market heavyweights including Trimble, Tenstar Simulation AB, Command ALkon, and A and Z Technologies will be exhibiting in the new product sector at The Big 5 Heavy, bringing with them a wealth of solutions relating to 3D Printing, Drones and Surveillance, Site Mapping, Robotics, Thermal Imaging, Virtual Reality Trainings and much more.
In 2018, The Big 5 Heavy was situated alongside Middle East Concrete, giving visitors access to all infrastructure products and solutions under one roof. The two events welcomed more than 19,000 visitors and played host to over 300 exhibitors from 132 countries - the two events will run side by side again.
The Big 5 Heavy and Middle East Concrete are co-located with The Big 5, HVAC R Expo, Middle East Stone, the Big 5 Solar, and Urban Design & Landscape Expo - together transforming Dubai World Trade Centre into the global hub for the construction industry from 25 -28 November 2019.
