The Big 5 Construct Kenya returns to support the nation’s $50bn projects pipeline
Kenya’s international construction event, The Big 5 Construct Kenya, is on track to take place in person from 24–26 November 2021 at the Sarit Expo Centre, Nairobi. The dmg-organised event returns as MEED Projects reports over US$2bn worth of major projects are currently out to bid in Kenya, with $50bn of known planned and unawarded projects.
Vital trading opportunities alongside educational seminars make The Big 5 Construct Kenya an unmissable business event for the construction sector in the wake of Covid-19 disruption. Indeed, the show is set to bring together 100+ local and international suppliers of construction products, as well as playing host to 20+ exclusive CPD-certified talks for visiting professionals.
Boosting business amidst the multi-billion-dollar project buzz
The timely event returns as Projects Data and Intelligence Partner, MEED Projects, reveals Kenya to be one of the most vibrant and diverse projects markets in Africa. The new report highlights more than US$2bn worth of major projects currently out to bid in the country across different sectors and counties – despite the disruptive impacts of Covid-19 – led by the nine main packages on the Isiolo to Mandera road package.
Muhammed Kazi, Vice President at dmg events, spoke on the future pipeline in Kenya and foresees powerful face-to-face connections as being key for the sector’s continued development: “With more than $50bn of known planned and unawarded projects in Kenya it is more important than ever to offer a safe environment for the regional and international community to come together where they can boost business activities, rebuild partnerships, and discuss vital lessons learnt all in one place,” he stressed. “We are delighted to return to Nairobi, offering a place for the industry to network face-to-face safely.”
Construction heavyweights and CPD-certified talks
The Big 5 Construct Kenya is set to welcome over 100 exhibitors from across the world, including Germany, Italy, Finland, Egypt and the UAE, giving professionals a chance to source industry innovations from around the world following pandemic-related disruption. Heavyweights signed up to exhibit include Liebherr, Wilo, Gamma, CGM, Elematic, Mapei, Sika, Rockal, Cleopatra Group and more.
In addition, the event will offer 20 exclusive and free-to-attend CPD-certified Talks presenting a unique opportunity for the construction community to stay up to date on trends in the sector. Representatives from industry associations PMI Kenya, BIM Africa and KGBS will be speaking across key themes including Sustainability, Architecture & Design, Technology and Project Management.
The Big 5 Construct Kenya exhibition is free to attend and runs from 24–26 November 2021 at the Sarit Expo Centre, Nairobi. “The construction community can network and do business in a safe environment at the event where the ‘dmg events All Secure’ set of safety protocols will be implemented following international standards and in collaboration with the Sarit Expo Centre and the country’s Authorities,” said the show’s organiser in a statement.
