According to a news release from the organisers, some of the construction industry’s influential spokespeople are lined up to present and discuss burning issues, challenges and predictions for the market at The Big 5 Conference 2010, that will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from November 22 to 25. C-suite executives, including Thomas Barry, the CEO of Arabtec; Abdul Majeed Al Fahim, the Chairman of Pearl Dubai and Samer Afra, Executive Vice President and member of the board at Al-Arrab Contracting, are few of the speakers who will participate.
The Big 5 has created a series of conference sessions and supplier seminars to address key issues for the industry, said the announcement. The topics include The Global Construction Market: Returning to Business; Managing Price Fluctuations and Lowering the Cost of Construction; and Human Resources, Developing Skills and Retaining Staff.
According to the organisers, the Supplier Seminar is a new addition to this year’s conference, aimed directly at the supply market, and will have the following topics on the anvil: New Products and New Sales, Developing Contracts and Managing Relationships and Quality Standards and the Integrated Supply Chain.
Speaking about the conference, Simon Mellor, Senior Vice President of construction at DMG events, the organisers, added, “We have a fantastic line up of speakers this year, with some of the most knowledgeable professionals from the industry facilitating debate and discussions about real business challenges and best practice.
“The new suppliers’ seminar is the first time The Big 5 has had a dedicated programme for the supply sector, and is a direct result of feedback from exhibitors and visitors, who felt that there was a need for this kind of forum.”
