What’s so good about construction exhibitions?

Exhibitions dedicated to the building industry are, primarily, a necessity for industry professionals.

They are prime venues for major manufacturers to present new developments, offer free seminars and masterclasses, and carry out their own market research on price and quality without having to commission it elsewhere. For those building or renovating their homes, exhibitions are worth visiting in order to learn about the latest technologies in the wide world of construction - technologies which can significantly reduce overall construction or repair costs, as the construction market is often full of expensive and inefficient materials. For example, all popular dry mortars are not just used for shell and core fit out or final finishing - professionals recommend universal dry mixes as they save time and money, the volume used being much smaller. There are also levelling floors, self-cleaning exterior paints, luminous stone, and many more interesting and resource-saving products.

The largest construction exhibitions - and the most appealing in terms of new developments and products - in Kazakhstan and Central Asia take place every year in Almaty. KazBuild and Aqua-Therm Almaty will both take place in four pavilions of the Atakent Exhibition Centre from 4 to 7 September 2012.

The organisers - the Kazakhstan exhibitions company Iteca and its international partners - have held KazBuild for 19 years and are proud to say that the majority of exhibiting companies are producers and manufacturers. Over 350 companies from dozens of countries will come to Almaty to take part in the event, which features an extensive business programme for industry professionals. Additionally, directly after the exhibition’s official opening ceremony on 4 September the Workshop Room of the Atakent Exhibition Centre will host an open competition for innovation in the construction industry. Manufacturers from Kazakhstan, Germany and Russia have submitted entries to date, and the competition is free to attend by registering at : http://onsite.iteca.kz/.

Which energy efficiency standards are in use in Europe? What is the role of ventilation systems in construction and and renovation? These and many other topical issues will be answered by German professionals at the Energy Efficient Heating and Cooling Systems in Combination with Renewable Energy Sources event, taking place on 5 September in Pavilion 11’s Workshop Room. Speakers include managers from major associations in the German construction industry, including the Federal Industrial Association of German House, Energy and Environmental Technology (BDH) and the Association of Air Conditioning and Ventilation in Buildings (FGK).

Judging by modern trends and the presentation of the market situation offered by KazBuild and Aqua-Therm Almaty, it is clear to see that Kazakhstan’s construction industry is rapidly recovering and gathering strength.
