This year, we are again expecting exhibitors from Turkey, Italy, UK, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Russia, Spain, Greece, Iran, Korea, Canada, China, Korea, Malaysia, Germany and India among many others.

A two day Big 5 Conference, a half day seminar by Indian Institute of Architects, one day seminar by American Society of Civil Engineers, 20+ CPD certified technical workshops spread over 3 days are some of the educational initiatives we are undertaking this year.
Our recent collaborations include workshops by Construction Industry Development Council (CIDC), Project management workshop by PMI India, green building certification systems workshops including LEED v4, USGBC's EDGE and GRIHA among much more.
