Big 5 is really very Big.
There are three reason due to which i recommend everyone to visit Big 5. 1. Big 5 is not only a UAE or MENA Construction Exhibition but this event is an opportunity for the whole World because it had representation of worldwide companies. 2. This event also contains Workshops & Conferences which is very Beneficial for the for the professionals, businessmen and students, by attending these workshops you can learn new technologies coming in construction industry, getting knowledge, networking opportunities & CPD Certificates. 3. Every industry who has directly or indirectly connection with construction had representation there from Foundation to Finishing. Big 5 should improved in following things which i noticed is as follows. There should be More 1. Information desk 2. Catalogs of event (Listing of Workshop of everyday) so that people don't take picture of Standees. 3. Maps of every industry with respect to Hall. ( Like Building Material is on Hall 4, 5).Translate
