News this week: International exhibition organiser Tarsus Group’s subsidiary, PTIA, announced plans to partner with dmg events to launch a new construction event in Indonesia – Big 5 Construct Indonesia. The inaugural event will be held in May 2015 at the Jakarta International Exhibition Centre (JIExpo).
Organised by dmg events, the Big 5 series of events include editions in Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and India. The events provide a platform for international building and construction industry players. According to Tarsus, construction represents 10% of Indonesia’s GDP and the launch of Big 5 Construct Indonesia will create additional growth opportunities for the local industry.
Matt Denton, senior vice president of dmg events, commented, “The Big 5 has long been established as the leading building and construction event in the Middle East with strong international participation. The new Indonesian event will allow us to build on our expertise and expand into the fast-growing Indonesian construction market. I am excited by the opportunity to work with Tarsus to launch this exciting new event.”
