01 September 2013

SAUDI Build 2013, the latest edition of one of the region’s premier construction events, has signed up over 500 exhibitors well ahead of the kickoff on November 4, 2013 at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Centre, organiser Riyadh Exhibitions Company said in a statement.

“Now in its 25th year, Saudi Build will reflect how, with around SR375 billion ($99.9 billion) worth of projects in the pipeline, Saudi Arabia continues to be a driving force for construction in the Mena region,” the statement said.

“So far, 28 countries have assured participation in the kingdom’s largest business to business construction fair this year. Saudi Build 2013, the 25th International Construction Technology and Building Materials Exhibition, will once again be a melting pot of contractors, real estate developers and building owners who will get to explore a full range of the best building solutions out in the international markets.”

Many of the leading names in Saudi Arabia’s construction will showcase their key developments at the upcoming event; Doka Saudi Arabia will present its extensive formwork solutions. Doka has been involved in several of the kingdom’s mega-projects, including King Abdullah Sport City, King Abdullah Financial District, the King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz project – Third Saudi Expansion of Holy Haram Makkah and surrounding areas – and King Abdul Aziz International Airport. Doka and other key players will reveal the unique solutions they employ for various construction requirements and what strategies they use to energise local markets.

“This is an important time for Saudi Build given its 25th year of existence and its valuable contributions to the ongoing dynamism of the Saudi construction market,” said Zeyad Al Rukban, assistant general manager, Riyadh Exhibitions Company.

“Companies that have played key roles in growing the local industry such as Doka will make this edition extra-special by sharing technologies, tools and best practices that have turned the kingdom into the region’s top construction hub. This year’s edition will be an occasion to both look back at Saudi Arabia’s great accomplishments in the construction field and set better and brighter directions for industry.”

Saudi Build 2013 will also offer trade visitors exciting displays of the latest top-notch building materials and equipment, architectural finishing products, stone, marble and granite products, construction tools and technology, engineering services, infrastructure materials and security and safety systems, among others.

The show will serve as the main platform for building new business opportunities in Saudi Arabia’s construction sector through displays and presentations of the latest in technology, machinery and equipment. Last year’s edition welcomed 812 exhibitors from 34 countries and 22,649 visitors covering an exhibiting space of 26,000 sq m.
