About Big 5 Construct Egypt

Our story


As the foremost portfolio of global construction industry events, Big 5 has built on major success at its flagship event Big 5 Global, running for 43 years in Dubai, UAE. Boasting a series of shows within local and rapidly developing markets including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Nigeria, Kenya, Qatar, Southern Africa, and Ethiopia, Big 5 shows serve as a dynamic platform, attracting key players from around the globe to the region, igniting lucrative business opportunities.

As it continues to evolve and expand into new territories, the portfolio has also developed specialized events for the construction landscape including concrete, PMV, stone, HVAC R, solar, glass, windows, doors & facades, and facilities management sectors.

Established in 1979 in Dubai, the trading hub between East and West, over the past four decades, the event has facilitated trade and brought thousands of innovative products to the region and beyond, helping construction professionals thrive through face-to-face connections.

Since 2018, Big 5 has set up a local office in Egypt, where the organizer, dmg events, also runs the renowned Egypt Petroleum Show, EGYPS, under the patronage of His Excellency Abdel Fattah El Sisi, President of the Arab Republic of Egypt.

Today, Big 5 portfolio of events attracts over 100,000 participants, bringing together real estate developers, architects, contractors, engineers, consultants, manufacturers, and distributors.

Connecting the construction industry in Egypt

With five editions connecting the Egyptian construction sector with the world, Big 5 Construct Egypt has become an unmissable platform for companies to network with leaders and professionals, build fruitful business relations, and excel in the industry by gaining insights on latest trends and innovations.

Running for three consecutive days at the Egypt International Exhibition Center (EIEC), the event will present value-added features such as the Big 5 Egypt Impact Awards, Big 5 Egypt Construction Leadership Summit, and CPD-certified Industry Talks.
