In response to the current circumstances and the repercussions of the Corona pandemic that led to the cancellation of participation in a large number of global and international exhibitions, and the Saudi Export Development Authority's keenness to support exporters in promoting their products and their access to global markets in all circumstances, the authority has involved 34 Saudi companies specialized in the building materials sector in the BIG 5 exhibition (virtual) held between 23-26 November 2020.

The products of the Saudi companies participating in the exhibition varied to include: ceramics, sanitary ware, electrical products, pipes and others. As companies uploaded information and pictures of their products on the exhibition stand, which were viewed by interested visitors and potential importers, then meetings were coordinated with them through the platform that led to a number of successful deals.

It is worth noting that "SAUDI EXPORTS" sponsored the exhibition with golden sponsorship, as part of its efforts to shed light on the global market opportunities in the building materials sector and methods to increase the Kingdom's share therein. Participation in the exhibition also reflects the importance of the building materials sector in the Kingdom, which is considered one of the most important non-oil exporting sectors, and is the highest export sub-sector within the building materials sector are: metal sheets, poles and bars, and electrical wires.
