Cambuild ’13 exhibit

As the standard of living in Cambodia improves and the construction sector beefs up, the demand for construction materials for interior design, home and office construction, schools and entertainment venues is also evolving accordingly.

AMB Events – with the support and cooperation from the Ministry of Commerce of Cambodia, the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction, Board of Engineers of Cambodia, Cambodia Constructor Association – is organising the international inexhibition Cambuild ’13 from September 10 to 12 at the Koh Pich Conference and Exhibition Center.

Nuon Veasna, business development assistant manager of AMB Events said that this international exhibition is organised so that national and international investment companies in the construction and real estate sectors can showcase their products and services. Cambuild will become an opportunity for all big investors to meet. This event will also show that the political deadlock will not affect the growth of construction sector.

“The coming international exhibition will be successful, because many big companies in the country and from oversea will participate, including the electricity authority of Cambodia and the Phnom Penh Water Autonomous Authority. It will bring the latest technology to Cambodia,” Veasna said.

The event will showcase high-rise projects, construction equipment, construction materials, machinery, clean water systems, electricity materials, fire safety systems, with about 300 companies participating from 22 countries, including Japan, China, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, Taiwan, India, Italy and Germany.

Kim Heang, president of Khmer Real Estate Co, said that Cambuild is important for three reasons: it is where professionals in the field meet to share knowledge and experience; it introduces constructors to producers of needed supplies to forge professional ties; and it is an opportunity for the sellers to show their new products to customers.

Sorn Seap, general manager of Key Real Estate Co, said that Cambuild is good because it will give Cambodia a chance to show international guests that its construction and real estate sectors are growing.

A recent survey of 475 American CEOS working in Southeast Asia reported on by the Post showed that Cambodia is the most attractive country to live in the region.
