Malaysia picked to host Ecobuild Southeast Asia

UBM Built Environment, organisers of Ecobuild, has extended its international reach with the launch of Ecobuild Southeast Asia.

Officially supported by the Ministry of Works, the Malaysian Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water and hosted by CIDB Malaysia, Ecobuild Southeast Asia will take place from 17th-19th September 2013 at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpa.

The exhibition will be co-located with Greenbuild Asia in a region which is expected to be amongst the world’s 10 largest economies by 2020.

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.

“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.”
