Moreover, the exhibition will offer participating companies and visitors alike, the opportunity to look at the latest updates and trends in regional market and to build new partnerships with potential clients, as well as getting the latest information related to all aspects of construction and building industry.


The participation also aims to promote local Saudi industries via opening export channels for them in the international front and demonstrate the competitiveness of the Saudi-made products in terms of price and quality, thereby boosting the Saudi exporters’ share in the global market, and equally raising this sector’s contribution in the Saudi GDP. Saudi Arabia witnessed a remarkable rise in exports volume of construction materials on a global level worth SR12 billion SR over last year.


With exhibitors showcasing thousands of certified and innovative products from across the globe, free CPD (Continuing Professional Development) certified workshops on offer and live product demonstrations, there is enough information for professionals from any discipline of the construction industry.


The Saudi Export Development Authority will offer several services to the participant companies, among which is the designing of the general pavilion for Saudi industries, providing a space dedicated for each participating factory besides samples shipping.


The Authority looks toward creating an added value for Saudi manufacturers through its efforts and activities, which reflects positively on national economy in general, and on the growth of national construction business in particular, by stimulating and enabling the companies to develop their business in the international markets, and benefit from the available opportunities through training workshops offered all year round or through participation in specialized international exhibition organized by Saudi Export Development Authority in many sectors, plus bilateral meetings and business forums.​​
