Held at the Dubai World Trade Centre, The Big 5 will run from 26 to 29 November. Endorsed by the Dubai Municipality and held under the patronage of the Ministry of Infrastructure Development, The Big 5 is set to welcome more than 2,500 companies from 60 countries. Moreover, 79,000 construction professionals will be participating this year, including the chairman and co-founder of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, Bibop G. Gresta.

Our summits, educational sessions and the thousands of innovative solutions on display this year are all geared towards facilitating the Dubai Plan 2021 and the UAE Vision 2021 by building fully connected and integrated infrastructures, as well as a sustainable, safe and resilient built environment,” he added.
