Event organiser dmg events will launch the Jeddah Construct expo in 2024
Running from 29 September to 1 October next year, the show is expected to drive the port city’s rapidly transforming building and construction industry in line with Saudi Arabia's ambitious goals of Vision 2030. It will be held at the Jeddah International Exhibition & Convention Centre.
The event will be supported by the Saudi Contractors Authority (SCA) as a Supporting Partner. Established in 2015 the SCA, which operates under the supervision of the Ministry of Municipal, Rural Affairs and Housing, aims to regulate and develop the contracting sector in the kingdom.
“Jeddah is experiencing a surge in its construction market. Serving as the gateway to Mecca and situated on the Red Sea coast, the city boasts an astounding total project value estimated at $100 billion, according to ABiQ,” said Ben Greenish, senior vice president, dmg events. “In 2011, the inaugural Big 5 Construct Saudi took place in the coastal city of Jeddah. Although it later moved to Riyadh, the overwhelming regional demand from the Kingdom’s Western Province has now prompted us to embrace our shared history and launch Jeddah Construct, a dedicated event for the Western Province powered by Big 5 Construct Saudi. It will present an exceptional opportunity to unite construction professionals in the city and unlock business within this flourishing market.”
Jeddah Construct expo launches with the participation of five prominent industry players, who have been confirmed as exhibitors and Founding Partners. These include Al Bawani, Saudi Services Company Limited, Madaar Building Materials, Al Yamama Group and Samnan.
In response to Saudi Arabia's pledge to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2060, the event will also feature the newest digital technologies and solutions to offer sustainability within the building ecosystem. Building interiors and finishes, materials and tools, security and access control, HVAC-R, stone and surface, facilities management, offsite and modular construction, plant machinery and vehicles, solar and MEP services will be among the exhibitors.
More than 4,000 key decision makers, professionals, and leaders from the Jeddah construction sector, including architects, developers, interior designers, project managers, consultants, contractors, regulators, specifiers, engineers, procurement and purchase managers, distributors, wholesalers, and manufacturers, will attend the Jeddah Construct expo.
“The dedicated trade event will help businesses tap into this booming market by connecting industry players with the key buyers and decision makers involved in the ongoing and upcoming construction projects in Jeddah,” Greenish added.
