Indonesia’s economy is one of the most dynamic in Asia and growing at an impressive rate, and the country has been playing an increasing role in international trade. Now Jakarta is taking another step, with the announcement of Indonesia’s first international building and construction show. The Big 5 Construct Indonesia will run from 7-9 May 2015 at the Jakarta International Expo, and it looks like it’s going to be a spectacular event.
Construct Indonesia is a truly international show, with exhibitors hailing from over twenty countries and thousands of products scheduled to be on display. Indonesia’s construction sector is very diverse; it’s almost doubled in size over the past five years, partly thanks to government infrastructure projects, and the local building materials industry is thriving. There’s huge demand for innovative materials, plant and equipment, as well as a wealth of contracts to be won. That makes Construct Indonesia a must for any company that wants to take part in the booming market, and the list of exhibitors reflects that. Companies from around the world will be represented, including US, German, British and Japanese firms as well as many more local ones.
Products on display at Construct Indonesia will range from fasteners and sealants to heavy plant and ventilation systems; every sector of the industry will be well represented and, with this being a new event, expect exhibitors to pull out all the stops. A full program of technical seminars will let visitors ask questions about the latest products. There will also be a series of presentations by leading companies about innovations in construction with a good focus on sustainability and efficient materials.
As well as showcasing products there will be plenty chances for attendees to improve their own knowledge, with a great selection of workshops and seminars. CPD-certified workshops will cover topics including green construction, new developments in concrete technology, risk management and urban planning. For those looking to enter the local market there will be a session on doing business in Indonesia, looking at local culture, tax, regulations and setting up a company.
Entry to Construct Indonesia is free, and it’s simple to register online at the event website. This event looks like a must-see for anyone looking at the growing Indonesian building sector; there’s a world-class list of exhibits plus an excellent schedule of other activities. Construct Indonesia should be a great opportunity to gain knowledge of the local market at the same time as keeping up to date on what’s going on in the industry worldwide.
