The Big 5 Construct Qatar is all set to return with its second edition
After a successful launch last year, The Big 5 Construct Qatar is all set to return to Doha with its second edition at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC) from 23 -25 September 2019.
The Big 5 Construct Qatar is organized by dmg events and supported by the Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC).
First launched last year, when just over half of Qatar’s $10bn-plus contracts awarded were in the construction and civil infrastructure sectors, the international construction expo comes back to Doha as industry reports forecast ongoing business opportunities.
“Qatar now has over $150bn worth of known planned and un-awarded projects in the pipeline. It is by far one of the largest future markets in the MENA region and we couldn’t be more delighted to return in support of it,” says Loubna Aghzafi, Country Manager at dmg events (Doha).
Commenting on the Qatar Construction Market Report, released in partnership with MEED Projects, she adds: “Construction and transport projects continue to make up the bulk of planned projects in Qatar, approximately 86% of the total current value, in fact, showing that we must continue to bring international and local stakeholders together.”
The report highlights the key projects including the new Airport City which will comprise of development and logistics parks, Sharq Crossing consisting of a tunnel, a bridge connecting North and South Doha, and the ongoing expansions of Doha Metro and Hamad International Airport.
On the business landscape in Qatar, Loubna Aghzafi concludes: “Changing legislation in Qatar is also helping to make it an exciting hub for international brands to come and do business; here you find visa-free entry for citizens of 80 countries, foreign investors who are able to own 100% of a company, and new Public-Private Partnership (PPP) laws that are reshaping the way large projects are financed.”
The Big 5 Construct Qatar is a platform where international and local construction professionals can meet each other. It will host products and solutions from the entire building cycle across seven product sectors; MEP Services; Building Interiors & Finishes; Building Envelope & Special Construction; Construction Tools & Building Materials; Construction Technologies & Innovations; Concrete; and Plant Machinery and Vehicles.
Furthermore, visitors are guaranteed with a free-to-attend and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) certified workshop programme with over 30 sessions on offer which will run across two theatres and multiple themes.
The Big 5 Construct Qatar welcomed more than 12,000 participants to Doha Exhibition and Convention Center last year.
