The Vietbuild International Exhibition will be held in Ho Chi Minh City from this week with the theme Construction, Industrial Machinery and Equipment and Interior-Exterior Decoration.

The first Vietbuild to be held this year in the city will also showcase building materials, electrical equipment, doors and accessories, water and air purifiers, industrial fans, labour safety equipment, solar water heaters and others.

It will have nearly 1,600 booths set up by 300 companies from 12 countries and territories – including Germany, Italy, France, India, Canada, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, China and Vietnam.

Nguyen Tran Nam, chairman of the Vietnam Real Estate Association and head of the expo’s organisation committee, said five Vietbuild expos with various themes will be held this year in Ho Chi Minh City, one more than last year.

“This is the first time the exhibition has the theme of industrial machinery and equipment and is welcomed by businesses.”

Vietbuild Construction International Exhibition Organising Corp chairman Nguyen Dinh Hung said in addition to showcasing products, the expo would also have business-matching events and seminars on its sidelines to help participants understand market trends.

It will be a forum for companies to meet, compare notes, explore cooperation opportunities, and introduce their latest products and technologies, he said.
