Thailand’s high-profile Architect 2019 exhibition aims to create awareness among builders and the public on the importance of eco-friendly buildings in growing cities amid threatening climate change effects.
The Association of Siamese Architects under the Royal Patronage (ASA) and N.C.C. Exhibition Organizer Co., Ltd. (NEO) will organise the 33rd edition of Architect 2019 that will be held in Bangkok.
Themed “Living Green”, the expo is expected to attract about 850 exhibitors from 40 countries and the trade fair will be held at Challenger 1-3, IMPACT Exhibition Center from 30 April to 5 May.
“The Architect 2019 is Asean’s largest building technology exposition. The expo aims to showcase the advancement in architectural design, which reflects the potential of the entrepreneurs and the role that architects play in the society."
“Still, Architect 2019 is not limited only to those in architecture professions but it also widely opens to other related fields as well as the general public who are interested in design and construction,” said ASA President Ajaphol Dusitnanond.
The exhibition will present architectural design concepts and innovative building materials that could revolutionise the industry, while bringing in local wisdom to tackle the environmental problems with sustainable solutions.
Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn will preside over the opening ceremony of Architect 2019 on April 30.
“Trade exhibitions play an important role in steering the national economy. In 2018, trade exhibitions generated over 200 billion-baht revenue to our country and attracted over 30 million visitors comprising over one million trade visitors from overseas."
“Therefore, it is anticipated that Thailand’s fast-growing M.I.C.E (meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions) sector will grow by approximately 6-10 per cent in 2019,” said NEO President Sakchai Pattarapreechakul.
A wide-range of international companies will exhibit their eco-friendly products in Bangkok.
Our CXD company also participated in the exhibition, so stay tuned.
