Synergy between INTERMAT ASEAN 2018 and Concrete Asia 2018
INTERMAT ASEAN and Concrete Asia return in 2018 to ensure the industry makes the most of its growth opportunities, by integrating an informative, industry-centered environment. The two trade exhibitions are co-locating for the first time, and will attract participants that represent the construction, infrastructure and concrete supply chains. Organizers expect 9,000 visitors from over 40 countries to attend, from pre-dominantly Asian countries. Jointly organized by IMPACT Exhibition Management Co., Ltd. ("IMPACT") and COMEXPOSIUM Group ("COMEXPOSIUM"), INTERMAT ASEAN and Concrete Asia will deliver over 500 exhibiting brands and companies.
"The first co-location of Concrete Asia alongside INTERMAT ASEAN makes this event one of the largest construction and concrete trade events in Asia. INTERMAT ASEAN and Concrete Asia are responses to the fast-growing construction project pipeline (comprising mega-projects from the announced to execution stage)," said Mr Loy Joon How, General Manager, IMPACT.
According to GlobalData, the combined value of mega-projects (projects with a minimum value of US$25 million) across ASEAN stands at US$2.9 trillion. In 2018-2022, the region's construction output will grow by 6.1% a year in real terms.
Ms Isabelle Alfano, Construction Business Unit Director, COMEXPOSIUM, added, "We are confident that holding INTERMAT ASEAN and Concrete Asia will help to deliver the best possible synergies and bring real added value to the event's local and regional buyers and visitors. Both shows serve as the perfect trade platform for the industry to explore the myriad of opportunities available, as well as discover the innovations in Asia."
According to Mr. Aungsurus Areekul, President, Thai Contractors Association under H.M. the King's Patronage ("TCA"), "INTERMAT ASEAN is the gathering place for construction and related professionals. The trade exhibition and complementing seminars, provide an avenue for construction companies to showcase their innovations, new technologies, and as well to find new ways to sustain and grow their businesses.
As the co-host of INTERMAT ASEAN, TCA is organizing a Contractors Talk to share insights on the vision of the construction industry; the overview of the economy and the effect on the construction industry; and the investment trends of the ASEAN construction industry."
