The Big 5 Construct Egypt, the most important event connecting the construction industry in Egypt, will take place in person from 26-29 June at the Cairo International Convention Centre (CICC), the event organisers, dmg events, have announced.
Construction activity in Egypt has continued at pace despite the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and has shown great resilience over the last year.
According to GlobalData, construction in the country is expected to have grown 7.7% in 2020, and looks forward to growth of 8.9% in 2021.
Muhammed Kazi, Vice President at dmg events, said, “We are delighted to confirm that preparations for The Big 5 Construct Egypt are well underway for the June event, and I am happy to reveal that reopening this year comes hand in hand with a wealth of new impactful features designed to provide opportunities for the industry to network, learn and do business.”
He added, “It is more important now than ever to bring the community together to boost business activities and build strong partnerships for the post pandemic era, and it is our belief that there is no better way to do this than through powerful face-to-face connections.”
The Big 5 Construct Egypt will showcase the latest construction products and technologies across an extended offering of specialised events. Joining international brands committed to the event despite travel restrictions, all major Egyptian contractors are signed up to exhibit, including: Hassan Allam Holding; Orascom Construction; El Soadaa; ASGC; Hanimex; Al Zamil; Al Ahram; Wellbond; Al Amal and more.

“As the population grows, it is critical to explore how the country can build on local, regional, and international partnerships to realise the value that the infrastructure and construction industry has in sustaining economic development and diversification going forward,” he added
