The region’s premier event for the landscaping, infrastructure and urban development industries, The Big 5 Outdoor Design & Build Show, will be co-located to The Big 5 in 2018 and with a fresh look, as Urban Design & Landscaping Expo, organisers dmg events Middle East, Asia & Africa announced.    

Portfolio Event Director, Josine Heijmans, said: “The thriving construction market in the UAE and the broader GCC region is driving unprecedented demand for outdoor specific design and build projects, as more authentic public spaces gain ground. An explicit change in lifestyle with growing preference for outdoors activities, mega-events like Expo 2020 Dubai and the booming regional leisure and hospitality sector are providing investors with huge urban greening and landscaping specific opportunities.

The Urban Design & Landscaping Expo will perfectly complement The Big 5, Middle East’s largest construction event, providing industry professionals from around the globe a dedicated space where to source the most innovative solutions for the construction and maintenance of urban and green spaces, sports grounds and playgrounds.”

Design, planning and consulting, irrigation and drainage, machinery and equipment for construction and maintenance, materials and components for urban design & landscaping are some of the products that will be showcased to the 79,000 visitors expected at The Big 5 next year.  The event will also feature CPD-certified workshops, live product demonstration and the high-level Urban Design & Landscaping Summit.
