The event will provide participants with a gateway into the rapidly growing Chinese market for sustainable development.
The political and economic context is right for the launch of Ecobuild China. China is already the world’s largest construction market and is forecast to expand at 8.5% CAGR from $1,200bn in 2011 to $1,700bn in 2015 (Source: Global construction 2020). However, the pace of development is coming at an environmental price, and the Chinese government is already investing hundreds of billions of dollars in green building to ensure that growth is matched by energy security and reduced local air pollution.
Expo Build China is the natural home for Ecobuild. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2012, Expo Build is the most comprehensive construction show in China, setting trends for design and construction techniques and showcasing the most innovative and premium products.
