International Built Environment Week (IBEW), to be held from 3 to 6 September 2019, is the most comprehensive event in Asia Pacific on the built environment. IBEW 2019 will feature 4 co-located tradeshows showcasing the latest innovations and industry solutions: BEX Asia covering the integrated design and planning space, Innobuild (IB) Asia focusing on construction 4.0, Mostra-Convegno Expocomfort (MCE) Asia zooming in on energy efficient solutions and renewable energy and Smart Cities and Buildings (SCB) Asia featuring the latest advances in urban solutions and smart cities.

IBEW 2019 is the ideal platform for industry leaders and professionals from the global built environment to exchange ideas and experiences on policies, business solutions, innovations and new technologies as well as the latest trends that are shaping the future of the construction and building industry. Serving as an important accelerator of the industry’s transformation, it will help you keep abreast of changes and facilitate your business evolution as the industry shifts towards smarter and more sustainable living spaces of tomorrow.

Together, the tradeshows will gather over 550 exhibiting brands and more than 50 topical experts from all over the globe to tackle the challenges facing the built environment space. More than 12,000 business delegates are expected to convene at IBEW 2019, aptly themed “Transforming the Way We Build”.

Collaboration key to innovation and solving challenges

Growing urban populations globally are spurring needs such as affordable housing and strong social, transportation and utility infrastructure. Today’s master builders are expected to construct quickly and efficiently, without compromising long-term sustainability. IBEW 2019 is set to accelerate the industry’s transformation by facilitating dialogue, creativity, innovation and knowledge sharing.

In today’s dynamic and interconnected landscape, we are seeing the blurring of lines across the diverse and exciting disciplines in the built environment sector. IBEW 2019 brings together builders, engineers, architects, surveyors, planners, facility managers, and other building professionals to facilitate innovation, collaboration and co-creation aimed at uplifting the building and construction industry. Visitors to our four specialised shows can look forward to learning about new building materials; sustainable solutions and renewable energy; technology that will boost productivity and reduce costs; as well as smart systems to improve the experience of building owners and occupants.

IBEW 2019 aims to showcase a comprehensive array of innovative products and solutions to meet every need across the built environment value chain. Technology remains at the core of innovation for the building sector, with the increasing adoption of artificial intelligence, drones, augmented reality, 3D printing and Building Information Modelling (BIM) driving exponential improvements in productivity and efficiency. The industry has also pushed ahead with efforts to improve its sustainability profile, through innovations such as new building materials and methods as well as practices to reduce construction wastage.
