Dubai World Trade Centre

Ground-breaking Innovations, Advanced Technology, and Future-Focused Products Take the Spotlight at Big 5


As the Big 5 enters its final stretch at Dubai World Trade Centre, innovation and future-focused technologies are proving prominent with some of the world’s most cutting-edge companies having showcased their latest products to thousands of industry professionals since the show’s doors opened on Monday.

One such exhibitor is new-to-show Pilosio, which has unveiled its new product, FLYDECK, at this year’s edition. A low-visual impact structure, the FLYDECK is a modular and temporary structure for working on the interiors of bridges, viaducts, and tunnels. With a loading capacity up to 150kg /sqm. the product is safe, practical, fast, with low visual impact and can be used for working on edge beams, shaped interiors, or elements with a complex geometric design.


“This is our first time in both Dubai and at the Big 5, and we have so far captured more than 150 promising leads, solidifying the fantastic reach the exhibition has,” said Francesca Fuser, Business Development Manager Middle East, Pilosio. “We chose to exhibit this year to familiarize ourselves with the MENA landscape, as we finalise our plans for an office opening in the country early next year. We look forward to expanding our database and networking further before the show closes.”

Elsewhere, OpenSpace has brought its latest camera, OpenSpace Capture, to Big 5 2022. Set to capture a 360-degree area of 150,000 square feet per hour using hands-free technology, the product uses inside-the-vision technology AI, which has three foundational functions: Computer vision, 3D reconstruction, and big data visualization. OpenSpace maps and publishes captured images every 15 minutes on average and has the capability to geolocate and map nine million images to drawings every week. The product’s AI automatically maps every image to the floor plans, providing the viewer with an up-to-date visual of the site that can then be viewed and navigated to pinpoint issues.


Prime Co, in partnership with Honeywell, is showcasing the brand’s latest eco-friendly refrigerant gas. The product was created after a decade of research and development by Honeywell with the aim of providing the industry with an environmentally friendly solution. By using refrigerant gas, users can save up to 20 per cent in emissions.

Also focusing on sustainable solutions are Al Bahar and Caterpillar, the latter of which is promoting the latest addition to its existing fleet of heavy machinery – the 320GX. Using a ‘smart mode’ synchronized engine and electrohydraulic control, this 20-tonne hydraulic excavator has lower fuel consumption and a low operating cost.
