$2.5 million in equipment deals made at first The Big 5 Heavy show in Dubai

The launch edition of The Big 5 Heavy has been hailed a success after the event welcomed over 6,000 visitors and exhibitors recorded $2.5 million in deals at the Dubai World Trade Centre last month.

When asked, 90% of visitors said that they would return next year, said organiser dmg::events, adding that it is now the largest event dedicated to heavy machinery in the Middle East having assembled 300-plus exhibitors across 7,000 sqm of specialised exhibition space.

“When combined, deals that were made at The Big 5 Heavy between leading manufacturers like Total Foundation Solutions, Deewan and Putzmeister, came in at a total of USD2.5 million” commented event director for The Big 5 Heavy, Richard Pavitt. “The event this year was a visually stunning crowd pleaser. And as for the deals, well they support a growing infrastructure industry in the Middle Eastern region.”

Andrea Bristot, Middle East Area Sales Manager for leading Spanish tower crane manufacturer, Linden Comansa, revealed that his company was able to greet visitors from across the region.

“During the three days of the show, we were very busy with customers and potential buyers, not only from the Emirates but also from Egypt, Oman, Saudi Arabia or Kuwait, which shows that the entire region is under an evident recovery,” he said. “Another good indicator is that the world’s main tower crane manufacturers were at the Big 5 Heavy show.”

The exhibition showcased heavy equipment from a range of industries with product variety including concrete, mining, and construction. In addition to showcases for tyres, scaffolding structures, tower crane and heavy vehicles, there were also over 40 seminars and workshops.

“Events like this should be mandatory for professionals to come and see, and companies should be encouraging their employees to come and visit – it’s a must,” said speaker Omar Essam Barakat, Dubai Novus, chairperson for The Chartered Institute of Building.

The next The Big 5 Heavy will return from 14-16 January, 2019 to the Dubai World Trade Centre.
