The Oxford Business Group has reported that Morocco’s construction sector is expected to rise at a compound annual rate of 4.07% over the next 4 years. With that in mind, The Big 5 Construct North Africa show presents an enormous opportunity to capitalize on that growth.
This year’s world-class event is organized by dmg events Middle East, Asia and Africa, a company offering a network of 300,000 suppliers and buyers in construction products from 120 countries. Portfolio Exhibitions Director, Andy Pert, has high hopes for this year’s edition.
“The event will facilitate future regional and global distribution opportunities by welcoming construction players from around the globe, ultimately supporting Moroccan exports,” he said.
Morocco’s Mall Zellij has already announced its participation. Other Moroccan companies following suit are Chaoui Bois, Vicaima Africa, Le Comptoir and Patmas Afrique.
International companies confirming their presence are Dubai Exports, the Developers and Builders Alliance (DBA), The American Institute of Architecture (AIA), the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Kenya Federation of Master Builders (KFMB).
As in past years, this year’s event is offering more than networking opportunities. A host of seminars, conferences and workshops, many of them free-to-attend, will be featured, carrying on a tradition call “Continued Professional Development.”
Summing up the reasoning behind organizing such an event, Andy Pert said, “By sharing global best practices and innovative ideas… we are confident that The Big 5 will support the Moroccan economy catering to the needs of local manufacturers and construction professionals.”
In past years, such as the 2016 Big 5 Construct North Africa Show in Kenya, contracts were signed on-site. Pert believes there is no reason not to expect the same good fortune at this year’s show in Casablanca.
