Build Eco Xpo (BEX) Asia, Southeast Asia’s leading trade exhibition for the green building market, is set to welcome international visitors this September. Paving the future for a greener, sustainable living, the event will be held in conjunction with Mostra Convegno Expocomfort (MCE) Asia, a regional HVAC-R, water and energy exhibition, and the International Green Building Conference (IGBC), at Marina Bay Sands from 12 to 14 September 2017.
According to the UN, half of Southeast Asia’s population will be urban residents by 2018. Cities account for 60 to 80 percent of energy consumption and generate more than 70 percent of the human-induced greenhouse gas emissions1. Shining the light on the latest solutions for building developers and managers, BEX Asia 2017 and its co-located event, MCE Asia, are expected to play host to over 450 exhibiting companies internationally and attract over 12,000 visitors to the region.
Promising an all-rounded experience for participants, BEX and MCE Asia will feature complimentary seminars that will offer a mix of perspectives to support knowledge building and exchange and inspire innovation in the industry.
“Across Southeast Asia, it is heartening to see policymakers, building owners, developers and architects tackling the pressing issue of climate change head-on,” commented Ms. Louise Chua, Project Director of BEX Asia at Reed Exhibitions. “Increasing awareness of the repercussions of climate change and translating this to action is key in the fight against climate change. For 10 years, our goal has been to inspire the industry to innovate and increase adoption of sustainable practices and technology in their projects. The 10th anniversary edition of BEX Asia brings all industry stakeholders together for a meaningful conversation on driving the region’s sustainability agenda in the next ten years.”
“We have made remarkable progress in the last ten years, evidenced in the growth of green collar jobs and the increased scale of building construction events. BEX Asia has continued to evolve as a linchpin in the transformation of the building and construction industry. We are proud to bring the region’s best minds together and provide industry players access to the latest tools, technologies, and expertise required to propel sustainable building forward,” added Chua.
New features continue to be added as BEX Asia evolves to keep pace with the industry. The 2017 edition will feature BEX-MCE Green Trails, a specially curated site tour designed to provide a deeper experiential understanding of green building practices and infrastructure in Singapore. The tour will take visitors to outstanding Green Mark Platinum buildings in Singapore, including BCA Skylab, CapitaGreen, Mapletree Business City and United World College Southeast Asia.
BEX Asia 2017 – Endorsing change for a sustainable future
This year, BEX Asia looks ahead to push forth a change in mindset to accelerate Southeast Asia’s green building developments. For the first time, the use of cutting-edge technology such as virtual reality (VR) in building design and construction will be featured to encourage designers, developers and contractors to incorporate these tools in their future projects. With demos and VR games from AAF International Asia-Pacific, Resource Data Management Asia and Nanyang Polytechnic, visitors are able to experience building functions in a fun and engaging way.
Topics such as sustainability in interior design, intelligent green buildings, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) for intuitive and smart buildings will also be key discussion areas at the event. Visitors can look forward to the Smart Web feature area that will showcase the latest technologies from Azbil Singapore, Creston and Synergix, designed to accelerate automation amidst technological advancements such as the Internet of Things. The area will feature intelligent solutions such as building and lighting controls, HVAC optimization, access & security controls and electrical network controls that provide actionable insights to help drive better building efficiency.
“As cities search for ways to manage their energy demand and carbon footprint, they must start looking to integrate technology to enhance the performance of building management and increase the energy efficiency of buildings. We are proud to be introducing Azbil’s solutions at BEX Asia 2017 and contribute towards the sustainable development in the region,” said Lim Cheng Yin, Deputy General Manager, Azbil Singapore Pte Ltd
Visitors at BEX Asia 2017 should also look out for an installation by G3 that leads the trend in smart buildings. Set within the exhibition floor will be the ‘FINCH’, a smart living space that is modular, relocatable and sustainable. Fabricated using cross-laminated timber (CLT), FINCH is adaptable and future-proof. It can be interconnected and stacked, creating limitless options for living and working spaces in any environment.
Cementing BEX Asia’s position as a leading industry platform for innovations solutions, more than 193 exhibitors have already agreed to participate at BEX Asia 2017, including top names such as AAF, AGC, Ariston, Azbil, Big Ass Fans, Belimo, Camfil, Crestron, ebm-papst, Kansai, Nippon, Parex, Reflex Winkelmann GmbH, ST Electronics, SMARDT, and Waldmann.
MCE Asia 2017 – A game-changing business solution to drive the trend towards Net Zero Energy Building (NZEB)
MCE Asia, the Asian edition of Mostra Convegno Expocomfort (MCE), Europe’s longest running trade exhibition for environmentally-friendly comfort technology, is set to open its doors for the third year running.
Contributing to the region’s green building agenda, MCE Asia will see top names such as ebm-papst Southeast Asia, AGC Asia and Reflex Winkelmann GmbH returning to showcase their latest innovations focusing on energy, efficiency for heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and ventilation.
These household names will be joined by first time exhibitors such as AAF Singapore, Kyung Dong Industrial and Yanmar Asia, with an array of solutions that represent next-generation fittings, fixtures and controls for sustainable buildings of the future.
Specially for HVAC-R & plumbing contractors, engineers, consultants, facilities managers and owners, MCE Asia will deep dive into topics such as air and water sustainability in healthcare and ways to design and manage energy-efficient buildings. The event also incorporates pavilions representing Canada, China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Netherlands among others, bringing delegates closer to the opportunities and innovations in these markets.
“We are excited to participate in MCE Asia 2017 and share our latest innovations with the industry. As the number one Italian water heater brand, we appreciate platforms such as MCE Asia that allow us to explore business opportunities across the region. Through this expo, we get to demonstrate our wide range of water heating solutions to industry thought leaders, and potentially form partnerships to gear towards a greener, more sustainable building industry.” said Richard Chua, South East Pacific Director, Ariston Thermo Group.
