The Big 5 Construct Kenya back in November

From 9-11 Nov 2022, over 8,000 public and private stakeholders are expected to gather at The Big 5 Construct Kenya to support Kenya’s Vision 2030 of reducing poverty and unemployment, while learning from industry experts and exploring innovative products and solutions to tackle a rapidly evolving business landscape.     

Organised by dmg events, the fifth edition of The Big 5 Construct Kenya will take place at the Sarit Expo Centre in Nairobi, Kenya. The exhibition floor will host several international pavilions spanning Italy, UAE, Turkey, Germany and more.

“With Kenya’s construction and infrastructure market expected to reach US$6.9 billion by 2027 and exciting development projects such as Konza Techno City and Northlands City underway, The Big 5 Construct Kenya aims to provide the market with a unique platform to accelerate growth,” said Ben Greenish, senior vice-president of dmg events.

“Industry professionals can benefit from networking opportunities with public sector officials, who play a critical role in developing the industry, as well as source innovative products from over 150 leading industry brands.”

In addition to being inspired by industry trend-setters on the exhibition floor, visitors can up-skill and earn their annual continuing professional development (CPD) points by attending a range of interactive and collaborative talks sessions led by industry experts across four key themes: technology, project management, architecture and design, and sustainability.  

For instance, the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) will present a masterclass on sustainable project management implementation, while the Project Management Institute (PMI) will cover themes such as performance, innovation and teamwork, as well as investing and financing in construction.

Other topics to be explored in keynotes and panel discussions include energy efficiency, affordable housing, and the digital age.

“The Big 5 Construct Kenya is a must-attend event for building and construction industry professionals who are looking for innovative products and services from local and international heavyweights. More than just an exhibition, it offers an unparalleled opportunity to support industry development through education and collaboration across the construction value chain,” concluded Greenish.
