SMEs Win 50% of Expo 2020 Dubai’s 2017 Contract Awards

Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) receive more than 50% of the contract awards related to Expo 2020 Dubai as of June this year, Invest-Gate reports.

SMEs involved in the project will have up to 20% of total direct and indirect spending, an estimated USD 1.36 bn worth of contracts, according to the latest Expo 2020 Dubai report prepared by the Big 5 Dubai.

Future opportunities related to Expo 2020 include crucial construction logistics packages that are to be awarded in January 2018, among those for a delivery management system, a waste management contractor, and temporary utilities’ installations.

Scheduled to be awarded next year, the final portion of packages is to include contracts for vertical transportation and landscaping.

The 438-hectare Expo 2020 Dubai will open its doors on October 20, 2020, with construction on the site likely to be completed one year earlier, by October 2019.
