Ecobuild kicks off in China

China’s inaugural Ecobuild exhibition has been hailed as a success by its organisers having attracted more than 15,000 visitors between 9 – 12 April.

Based in Shanghai, Ecobuild China formed part of Expo Build which attracts over 100,000 building professionals each year.

Running alongside the exhibition, the Ecobuild China Conference provided debate and discussion through keynote sessions delivered by leading academics and industry spokespeople.

“Sustainability in the built environment is an issue that has picked up pace over recent years and shows absolutely no sign of slowing its momentum,” said James Blue, portfolio director, Ecobuild.

“Ecobuild in the UK has seen phenomenal growth over recent years. We want Ecobuild China to be the annual meeting place for everyone involved in the creation and maintenance of sustainable built environments throughout China and I’m thrilled that the event has been so well received by such a passionate and diverse community.”
