PMV joins Big 5 near Convention Centre

The Big 5 PMV exhibition will relocate to a site adjacent to the Big 5 location at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre this year.

The Big 5 PMV exhibition will relocate to a site adjacent to the Big 5 location at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre this year.

The Big 5 will take place from November 23 to 27.

The PMV expo is dedicated to manufacturers and suppliers of plant, machinery and construction vehicles.

Bernard Walsh, managing director of DMG World Media Dubai and organisers of the Big 5 said: "The arrival of the PMV expo at Big 5 in a single site venue is a natural synergy for us. We've listened to what our exhibitors and visitors wanted and have responded with a one-stop-shop for all construction professionals. It plans to be a dynamic five days in November."

A massive wave of projects in the GCC, Egypt, Iraq and Libya has turned the region into the world's biggest market for plant, construction machinery, vehicles and equipment, demand for which is expected to grow by up to 20% over the next four years.

"The PMV element will retain its individual identity and have separate indoor and outdoor arenas. Suppliers of plant, machinery, construction vehicles and equipment are still pursuing contracts worth many billions of dollars, and we've created a platform for them to meet face to face with key buyers," said Nick Webb director of Streamline Marketing Group, which stages PMV on behalf of DMG World Media.

Last year's PMV attracted more than 240 key manufacturers and suppliers from 24 countries. This year's exhibitor line-up is expected to break the 300 mark, with exhibition space expected to top 40,000m2 as compared with just under 30,000m2 in year one.
