Running from 25-27 September, 2016 at the Kuwait International Fair, The Big 5 Kuwait is set to be the largest building and construction event in the country. With planned developments worth an estimated US$123.6 billion, and a $68.9 billion Government construction budget for 2016, Kuwait’s construction industry offers massive business opportunities.
