    Southeast Asia’s premier business event for the exchange of global expertise and technologies for sustainable building, Build Eco Xpo (BEX) Asia, concluded with more than US$110m expected in green building business transactions. This year, BEX Asia also continued to record positive exhibitor sentiments across new and returning exhibitors.


    Held from the 1 to 3 September, 2014 at Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre, the seventh edition of BEX Asia, themed “Building Today, Sustaining Tomorrow”,saw more than 400 exhibiting companies from 35 countries, including Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, United States and United Kingdom. It is a one-stop sourcing destination for cutting-edge products, innovative technologies and sustainable designs in building materials, energy efficiency systems, fittings and fixtures, and much more.


    More than 200 business meetings were set up over the three-day event to facilitate the exploration of partnerships between exhibitors and visitors during and beyond BEX Asia, which was held in conjunction with the International Green Building Conference organized by Building and Construction Authority (BCA).

    At the ‘Green View’, a platform for experts to share their insights on the industry, overwhelming response was recorded with more than double the expected participation rate. The ‘Green View’ featured green building topics that range from façade optimization to the Internet of Things and intelligent buildings. Speakers included Mr Hiroshi Kojima, Director, GIPV Group System Solution BU, AGC Asia Pacific, Mr. Brent Boekestein, Director, Global Markets for Redwood, Commscope, Mr. Veera Sekaran, Managing Director, Greenology, and Mr Oon Wee Chin, President, UTC Building and Industrial Systems, Southeast Asia.


    “The build green industry in Southeast Asia is expected to reach USD 40 billion and there is a huge potential for growth. I am happy that BEX Asia has provided a platform for companies and visitors to be equipped with the dynamics to capitalize on the green evolution and embrace sustainable communities for a better future,” said Louise Chua, Business Development Director and Project Director, Reed Exhibitions, organizer of BEX Asia 2014.

    Building on the green momentum, a newly launched Mostra Convegno Expocomfort (MCE) Asia 2015 will be co-located with BEX Asia 2015 in Singapore. MCE is Europe’s largest trade event dedicated to the cooling, water, renewable energy and heating sectors of the green building community.
