Big5 in Dubai: Raw material suppliers to shift focus from construction to manufacturing

As part of their strategic moves in post-pandemic recovery, leading UAE and international raw material suppliers plan on shifting their focus to provide tailor-made resources to manufacturing and heavy industries in the construction sector in 2023. Moreover, many companies are now actively developing products to help companies and countries achieve their sustainability goals. Even heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) industries are focusing on providing products to alternate sectors, such as education and healthcare, industry leaders at the 43rd edition of the Big5 show told Gulf News. Big5, one of the most significant construction events in the region, got on to a booming start Monday morning as over 2,000 participants from over 60 countries presented their products and services at the show. Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Media Council, inaugurated the event. The expo features six specialised events addressing the entire sector eco-system - Big 5 Heavy, Middle East Concrete, HVAC R Expo, Middle East Stone, Urban Design and Landscape Expo, and FM Expo. Companies and industry leaders are reporting a shift in focus into different sectors as part of their pandemic recovery strategies. Mohammed Al Afari, Senior Vice President - Marketing at
