Mr. Karim Helal - Co-Founder & CEO, Protenders

Q: Why is ProTenders taking part in The Big 5 Saudi? 

A: We have had great success with The Big 5 in Dubai meeting a significant number of contractors, manufacturers and suppliers, and the natural next step was for us to come to The Big 5 Saudi to expand our reach within the Saudi market. ProTenders is an extension of The Big 5 because our award-winning platform is uniquely positioned to help companies identify the right partners, understand the project landscape and showcase their product catalog throughout the year.

Q: What is your outlook on the Saudi construction sector?

A: The construction sector in Saudi Arabia is booming thanks to the great strides in line with Saudi's Vision 2030 of economic transformation. With over USD 962.1bn worth of active Saudi projects according to ProTenders' intelligence data, the outlook certainly seems positive. We are already seeing many of our international clients eager to be a part of the construction market in Saudi.

Q: What are the major trends and opportunities you spot?

A: One trend we're noticing is the increased demand of international and regional companies interested in Saudi Arabia's construction projects. For us, this means that ProTenders can help customers identify new partners, and find their next project with the most current construction data on Saudi Arabia, and the opportunity to showcase their products on our online product catalog. Another trend, is the recent frequency with which new projects are being announced across Saudi Arabia. This presents another opportunity for us because we anticipate a growing demand for an e-Tendering solution like ours, that will help real-estate developers to build faster with reduced risk.

Q: What products or solutions will you present at The Big 5 Saudi?

A: ProTenders' all-in-one construction platform will help companies reduce their risk, showcase their companies, and find new leads and partners, securely and efficiently. At The Big 5 Saudi, visitors to ProTenders' stand will have the chance to view a thorough demonstration of what the platform has to offer - from our powerful e-Tendering solution to insights of GCC data of USD 2.61tn worth of projects to our online product catalog directory.
