ABOUT CONFERENCE

Showcasing the most innovative startups in the industry.

Under the conglomerate of dmg events, The Big 5 unites the global construction community under one roof and provides leading-edge innovation, knowledge, and business opportunities for industry stakeholders to reconnect, grow, and succeed.

The region’s largest in-person construction industry event will host 1000 exhibitors, 45 exhibiting companies, and 20 country pavilions. This year’s event itinerary comprises 70 CPD-certified talks and three high-level summits.

One of the significant avenues of The Big 5 is its innovation platform Start-up City in which Contech and Proptech startups get the opportunity to announce themselves in front of 67,000+ construction professionals, among them industry leaders and investors.

This is an excellent chance for young entrepreneurs and startups to get a boost in the business world through the added advantage of the Big 5’s 40+ year traction.

This year, the stakes are higher. With Draper-Aladdin sponsoring the Start-up City, the stage is set for the winning pitch to take home an investment reaching up to $500,000.
