The heart of the building and construction materials sector is beating in Dubai these days.
Considered as one of the most important gatherings of the sector, "The Big 5" started with intense participation from all over the world.
The exhibition, which took place in Dubai, was also where the latest models in the building and construction sector were exhibited for the first time.
