The Big 5 Construct Nigeria today announced its forthcoming event taking place between 27 and 29 September 2022 at the Landmark Centre in Lagos.
A statement said leading industry buyers and sellers from Africa and beyond will come together to promote innovation, share cutting edge knowledge, and accelerate business, in a safe and convenient environment.
“Launched in 2019, The Big 5 Construct Nigeria is now earmarked as the yearly gathering of construction professionals to engage both with the local and international community, as a place to source, learn and develop new skills. By bringing together experts and suppliers from around the world to engage with the local construction community, the event plays a direct role to support the needs of the country’s infrastructure and housing development projects,” says Ben Greenish, Senior Vice President, dmg events.
From building materials and tools, interiors and finishes, to solar and urban design landscaping, the products and services on show will cover the full construction cycle from inception to completion, from leading companies such as Forero Nigeria Limited, Sana Group and Kohler. In addition, for the first time, the expo will also showcase four new international pavilions from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Egypt and Kuwait.
Following the disruptions forced on the construction industry in recent years due to the pandemic, latest forecasts predict industry growth of 5.7% in 2022, and suggest that construction activity in Nigeria will surpass pre-Covid levels by 2023. This growth is supported by the Nigerian government’s investment in infrastructure and housing development projects, with $123.1 billion allocated for critical infrastructure projects between 2021 and 2025.
