UBM adds to Ecobuild portfolio and launches in Southeast Asia

UBM Built Environment is adding to its Ecobuild portfolio with the announcement of Ecobuild Southeast Asia – the event will take place at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur from September 17-19, 2013.

Officially supported by the Ministry of Works, the Malaysian Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water and hosted by CIDB Malaysia (Construction Industry Development Board), Ecobuild Southeast Asia will bring together senior government officials, developers, architects, consultants, contractors and planners from across the region to network.

Ecobuild Southeast Asia will be co-located with Greenbuild Asia; Southeast Asia’s biggest event serving the local sustainable building community. The last event in Kuala Lumpur welcomed over 11,000 trade buyers and 450 exhibiting companies from 32 countries.

Eliane van Doorn, International Director, UBM Built Environment said: “We have selected Malaysia from a list of countries in the region due to the invitation and support extended to us from the Construction Industry Development Board and initiatives taken by Malaysian Government in promoting green technology. We are excited about the collaboration opportunities the show is set to provide between international suppliers, the Government and commercial buyers in Malaysia and the Southeast Asia region. Our aim with Ecobuild Southeast Asia is to provide a regionally and internationally respected event to attract international leaders and suppliers to the region.  Southeast Asia offers suppliers unparalleled business opportunities and we’re delighted to be able to facilitate a route into this highly profitable market.”
