The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and its strategic partners, including 12 trade associations and chambers (TACs), will launch a new international flagship event, the inaugural International Built Environment Week (IBEW), for the built environment sector from 4 to 6 September 2019.
Themed “Transforming the way we build”, this event will become a platform for industry leaders and renowned professionals from the global built environment industry to exchange ideas and experiences on policies, business solutions and technologies, as well as explore business opportunities.
At the soft launch of IBEW, which was attended by representatives from industry firms and TACs, guests were given sneak peeks into the events that would anchor the week. These include a three-day conference, an international business-matching platform, and four anchor trade shows—InnoBuild (IB) Asia, Smart Cities and Buildings (SCB) Asia, Build Eco Xpo (BEX) Asia and Mostra Convegno Expocomfort (MCE) Asia—on smart, productive and Green solutions.
Hugh Lim, chief executive officer of BCA said, “The Singapore brand has been synonymous with timeliness and quality. Our built environment industry has seen exciting developments over the years and has built up much experience and expertise. Against the global backdrop of an increasingly demanding business environment and rapid technological changes, the new International Built Environment Week, which will be held annually in Singapore, will bring together decision makers and businesses from the global built environment sector to transform the way we build.”
Overall, more than 12,000 attendees, from thought leaders, real estate investors and developers to urban planners, architects, engineers, builders and other industry professionals from all over the world, are expected to convene at IBEW. — Construction+ Online
