Already the largest facilities management market in the GCC, Saudi Arabia’s sector has plenty of room to grow in both value and sophistication, as it rises from being worth an estimated $20.3bn in 2014 to a forecast $29bn by 2017. This increase in value could in part be fuelled by Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, which sets out enhancing the liveability of Saudi cities as one of its broad objectives, while the country’s National Transformation Plan includes improving facilities management across its healthcare infrastructure among its more specific targets. “As the industry leaders, FM Expo Saudi 2017 and Saudi Clean Expo provide platforms for our speakers, exhibitors and visitors to learn from experts, delve into key industry influencing trends and discover new and innovative technologies,” says Alexis Wheatley, Event Director for dmg events. “As Saudi Arabia sets out to protect and preserve the built assets it has invested in so heavily, the facilities management industry has a great opportunity to grow alongside this emerging demand.” It is into this promising market that FM Expo Saudi 2017 and Saudi Clean Expo will launch, at the Jeddah Centre for Forum & Events, next January 15-17. Organised by dmg events Middle East, Asia & Africa, the exhibitions and the accompanying Facilities Management Leaders’ Conference replicate some of the company’s most successful international events.
