Comexposium says it plans to expand its portfolio in Asia following its acquisition of Concrete Asia from Globe International Events Consultancy.
Concrete Asia is a fast-growing international trade exhibition and conference that serves the concrete and construction industry in the Asian region.
In June 2017, Comexposium successfully co-organised the first edition of Intermat ASEAN (its inaugural extension of construction and infrastructure exhibition Intermat Paris) in Bangkok, Thailand, to cater to the emerging building and construction needs of Southeast Asia.
Intermat ASEAN is strongly supported by the Thai Contractors’ Association, and the acquisition of Concrete Asia further extends Comexposium’s presence in and product offering to service the ASEAN (The Association of Southeast Asian Nations) construction market.
From 6-8 September 2018, Concrete Asia and Intermat ASEAN will be co-located to create comprehensive platforms for the construction, infrastructure and concrete industry in Southeast Asia.
Comexposium will co-organise the event with Impact Exhibition Management, the premium venue and leading exhibition organiser in Thailand.
“A partnership was formed with Comexposium to broaden and strengthen Concrete Asia’s position in the ASEAN region,” says Mr Loy Joon How, general manager, Impact.
“This new collaboration with Comexposium is geared to better support the needs of the concrete industry across ASEAN, as they go through the next decade of exciting transformation.
Together with Intermat ASEAN in 2018, both shows now promise to be the most complete and most exciting must-visit events for the industry in the region.”
Ms Isabelle Alfano, Comexposium Construction Business Unit Director, says, “We are strongly confident that by co-locating Intermat ASEAN and Concrete Asia in 2018, we would leverage synergies and enhance the value for the regional and local buyers and visitors to attend the events.
“My team and I are excited to work towards delivering events that meet the business objectives of our targeted customers.”
Mr Paul Lee, Comexposium CEO Asia Pacific, says: “Comexposium is excited to cooperate once more with Impact to better serve the growing needs of Southeast Asian building and construction stakeholders.
“The ASEAN markets are not only an attractive FDI destination underpinned by mid- to large-sized economies such as Thailand and Indonesia, they are a key destination for China’s One Belt One Road policy. These trends bode well for the future building and infrastructure development in ASEAN.”
