African Construction Expo, Southern Africa's construction and built environment exhibition, is rebranding to The Big 5 Construct Southern Africa. According to the organisers dmg events, this update is reflective of the evolution of its place in a dynamic and transforming market and geography.
After two years of going digital, the 2022 edition will be in person, taking place from June 7 to 9, 2022 at the Gallagher Convention Centre. According to Devi Paulsen, vice president of dmg events, "Our decision to rebrand to The Big 5 Construct Southern Africa allows the Southern African edition of this series to successfully align to the strengths of an iconic portfolio of global events, hosted in Dubai, Egypt, Saudi, Nigeria and Kenya, which has been running for over 42 years and collectively welcomes over 100,000 participants annually."
„We believe in accelerating progress in the construction industry.“
The Big 5 Construct Southern Africa 2022 expects to host thousands of attendees from over 40 countries, offering a number of thought-leadership conferences, hours of networking, business matchmaking programmes and free-to-attend workshops and talks besides hundreds of exhibitors. "For eight years, we have been committed to facilitating buyer/seller face-to-face connections and showcasing the most innovative solutions for the region", says Tracy-Lee Behr, dmg events construction portfolio director. "We believe in accelerating progress in the construction industry to support economic growth and to promote a healthier and more sustainable built environment across Southern Africa", she added.
