Phnom Penh is witnessing a new breed of high-rise buildings, with the Vattanak Tower, Olympia City, DI Riviera, Camko City and the Grand Phnom Penh currently being built.
A company called AMB Events hopes to promote the growing industry with new ideas, concepts, products, human capital, and investors by organising the Cambuild 2013 and Cambodia Property Expo 2013.
The expos will be held on the 10th-12th of September 2013 at Diamond Island Exhibition & Convention Centre. The event is supported by the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Land Management Urban Planning and Construction, the Electric Authority of Cambodia, and is hosted by the Cambodia Construction Association.
The expo has doubled the number of participants since 2010, with the increasing demand for growth. This year they are expecting over 300 companies from Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, China, Japan and India to showcase their products, services, ideas and technology.
Benjamin Yeo, the general manager of AMB Events, said the upcoming shows will be international, with many foreign companies taking part. He told Post Property “the construction sector in Cambodia has had a large growth since 2010 amid global major investors who have been looking any country they can invest and Cambodia becomes a part of their key target.”
Kim Heang, president of Khmer Real Estate, said the exhibition is essential. “First, it is an event for professionals to share their experiences and knowledge. Second, it is the meeting between producers and construction builders. Thirdly, it is an opportunity for vendors to show their new products to customers.”
He went on: “I agreed to take part in an annual exhibition; before I think the previous show events have not seemed to have something changed significantly because it was too new for Cambodia.”
Sorn Seap, general manager of Key Real Estate said that the show is “really good, because it helps to promote the property and construction sector in Cambodia. The event is the chance to show both national and international visitors that Cambodia is growing in terms of construction and property.” He continued, “it is also the opportunity for exhibitors to show their new products to customers.”
