For more than three decades, The Big 5 has been the premier platform for suppliers of construction products looking to connect with high profile buyers from the Middle East, South East and Asian market.
From modest beginnings with just one hall, The Big 5 has gone from strength to strength, to evolve into the largest, most influential and renowned portfolio of construction industry events spanning the Middle East and India. The Big 5 network now includes more than 300,000 construction suppliers and buyers from 120 countries worldwide.
New for 2013, and organised by the Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce (FICCI), the Ministry of Urban Development (Government of India) in association with dmg :: events, The Big 5 Construct India is the gateway to the one of the world’s fastest growing markets.
India presents unprecedented opportunities for construction product suppliers looking to enter the market. The 10th largest economy in the world for nominal GDP and the third largest by purchasing power parity, India’s infrastructure and construction sectors have witnessed phenomenal growth over the last five years with a projected spend of US$167 billion on real estate development, US$65 billion on the country’s railways, US$92 billion on roads and highways, US$ 22 billion on ports, and US$8 billion on airport build and construction by 2020.
The winning combination of The Big 5 brand’s reputation, industry-wide database opportunities and FICCI’s commercial know-how expertise will come together for four days of business and networking as The Big 5 Construct India reaches out to the market by opening a highly organised and professional gateway through which global suppliers will be able to showcase their range of products to buyers from across the country.
An series of free seminars, panel discussions and live interactive demonstrations will complement the show floor activity, providing participants with up-to-the-minute information, trends analysis and best practice case studies to improve the decision making process and encourage investment.
A one-of-a-kind forum for suppliers and buyers looking to meet and do business with the best in business, The Big 5 Construct India is set to deliver an outstanding industry event.
