dmg events’ new Jeddah Construct expo to propel building sector progress in the $100 billion Jeddah construction project market


dmg events is set to launch the Jeddah Construct expo in 2024 as part of its phased expansion plan. The newest addition to its list of trade exhibitions, the event will help drive the port city’s rapidly transforming building and construction industry in line with the ambitious goals of Vision 2030.

The event, catering to the Kingdom’s Western Province, is the most trusted construction exhibition in Jeddah and will run for three days from 29 September to 1 October 2024 at the Jeddah International Exhibition & Convention Centre. The launch of Jeddah Construct expo (powered by Big 5 Construct Saudi, the largest construction event in the country running for the past 10 years), follows the successful introduction of other targeted shows in the Kingdom by dmg events such as the Saudi Wood expo, the Saudi Warehousing & Logistics expo and the Saudi Hospital Design & Build expo that cater to the growing logistics, healthcare construction and woodworking industries in the country.

The event will be supported by the Saudi Contractors Authority (SCA) as a Supporting Partner. Established in 2015 the SCA, which operates under the supervision of the Ministry of Municipal, Rural Affairs and Housing, aims to regulate and develop the contracting sector in the Kingdom.

“Jeddah is experiencing a surge in its construction market. Serving as the gateway to Mecca and situated on the Red Sea coast, the city boasts an astounding total project value estimated at $100 billion, according to ABiQ,” said Ben Greenish, Senior Vice President, dmg events. “In 2011, the inaugural Big 5 Construct Saudi took place in the coastal city of Jeddah. Although it later moved to Riyadh, the overwhelming regional demand from the Kingdom’s Western Province has now prompted us to embrace our shared history and launch Jeddah Construct, a dedicated event for the Western Province powered by Big 5 Construct Saudi. It will present an exceptional opportunity to unite construction professionals in the city and unlock business within this flourishing market.”

The coming of Jeddah Construct expo next year will support the growing needs of an innovative, more sustainable construction landscape in Jeddah, which is cementing its position as the Red Sea’s main commercial hub and becoming an attractive city to live and work in, reinforcing the Quality of Life Program under Vision 2030.

The event will also be a showcase of the latest digital technology and products to deliver sustainability within the construction ecosystem in response to Saudi Arabia’s commitment to cut its carbon emissions to net zero by 2060. The exhibitor line-up will cover a range of segments: building interiors and finishes, materials and tools, security and access control, HVAC-R, stone and surface, facilities management, offsite and modular construction, plant machinery and vehicles, solar and MEP services.
