CAMBUILD 2022 holds 10th international exhibition

The construction and industry exhibition CAMBUILD 2022 is being held from November 16-18 at Koh Pich Convention Centre in Phnom Penh.

CAMBUILD 2022 was organised by Tarsus Southeast Asia, a global business to business event organiser that aims to facilitate the enhancement of business partnerships.

The event brought together more than 300 major companies and brands from around the world, including companies from China, India, Singapore, Italy, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea and Vietnam in order to provide opportunities for brands to promote themselves in the Kingdom and expand into its market.

The second day of the exhibition was attended by prospective customers from the construction sector as well as business owners such as wholesalers and retailers looking to find suppliers and partners.

The number of participants was encouraging to the business owners with products on display and raised expectations about the possibility of expanding their brands into Cambodia, according to an exhibition participant.

Pin Chamnan, one participant with a display booth at the Koh Pich, said that he’d already distributed over 200 brochures to interested attendees that day regarding his water supply business.

“This is the first time that our company has attended this type of exhibition ... I am very happy that there are many potential clients here who seem interested in our services,” he said.

Chamnan continued that he is hopeful about the chances that his company, GWM, will see an increase in sales following this event.

“I also want to see more of these events held in the future, because I personally have gotten the opportunity to meet many new people and I’ve been able to promote our products to people who mostly don’t know about us yet,” he added.

A senior marketing representative, Kong Srey Noch, manning a booth for the Thai brand Simplex, which provides interior design services, said she had also received a lot of visitors making inquiries at their booth.

“I noticed that most of the visitors who came to our booth are building contractors or work in the construction sector. So I believe that we’ve reached a lot of target customers,” she said.

Srey Noch also felt certain that some of those exhibition attendees who stopped by the booth will also be contacting Simplex or making an appearance at their offices in the coming days.

“We very much expect to be seeing some more customers after these three days displaying our services. We also hope that the other customers who we don’t see right away are at least more aware of our services,” she added.
