CONNECTING THE WINDOWS, DOORS, FACADES AND GLASS INDUSTRY
IN THE MIDDLE EAST

Image

Windows, Doors & Facades Event and Gulf Glass are the largest dedicated events in the Middle East. The events are co-located with The Big 5, the region's largest construction event, creating a one stop shop for the industry to source all products throughout the construction cycle from concept to completion.

For four consecutive days at the Dubai World Trade Centre, we connect suppliers with quality buyers from across the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, promoting innovation, sharing cutting edge knowledge and accelerating business.

Our Story

Since 1979, The Big 5 has enabled partnerships, advanced knowledge, and industry best practices, while serving as the gateway between East and West for international companies to access emerging markets.

Year after year, the event has facilitated trade and brought thousands of innovative products to the Middle East region and beyond, helping construction professionals thrive through face-to-face connections.

With a global hub in Dubai, The Big 5 provides access to the most innovative built environment solutions manufactured both internationally and locally. More than that, the event is well-respected for its premium strategic content as well as technical CPD- certified workshops, and prestigious awards

Contractors, consultants, real estate developers, architects, engineers, consultants, manufacturers, and distributors from the region and around the world gather here to connect, grow, and succeed in their career and business.

Continuing to evolve and expand into new territories from its UAE origins to Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria and South Africa, The Big 5 includes dedicated product sectors alongside nine specialised events that address niche audience requirements and cater to the entire construction life cycle: The Big 5 Heavy; Middle East Concrete; Windows, Doors & Facades Event; Gulf Glass; HVAC R Expo; Middle East Stone; The Big 5 Solar; Urban Design & Landscape Expo and FM Expo.

Today, The Big 5 is the largest and most influential portfolio of construction events across the Middle East and Africa, attracting over 100,000 participants every year, helping industry professionals excel with their projects and be ready for this new and very different era.
