Why Egypt

The country's list of national megaprojects under-development is a key pillar for economic growth and ongoing construction is moving ahead in full swing. Add to that a forecasted sector growth at 7.7% in 2020, and it's clear that Egypt remains ripe with opportunity.

In just 4 days you can expand your network, build your brand, and generate new business that will benefit you for years to come.

The government has carried out national projects worth 4.5 trillion Egyptian pound ($284 billion) over the past six years.

Egypt is in fact the only country in the Middle East & North Africa region (MENA) where overall spending on projects has grown in the past two years.

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has embarked on a raft of megaprojects, which has spearheaded growth over the past few years.

Egyptian government has constructed more than 7,000 kilometers (4,350 miles) of roads over the past few years


The Big 5 Construct Egypt is under the patronage of His Excellency Dr. Moustafa Madbouly, Prime Minister of the Arab Republic of Egypt. The event is also backed by senior officials in the Egyptian government and beyond. Our close ties with senior government officials in Egypt and other African countries along with key industry personalities allows us to bring you a world-class exhibition that is in line with the government's vision for the country and the needs of the industry.
