The second Vietbuild to be held in the city this year will have 2,500 booths, nearly 100 more than last year, set up by nearly 900 domestic and foreign companies from 27 countries and territories, including Australia, the United States, Russia, France, China, the Republic of Korea, Japan, Thailand and Singapore.
They will showcase property projects, electrical equipment, doors and accessories, internal and external decorative items, building materials, solar energy systems and others. Conferences and business meetings would be held on the sidelines.
Nguyen Dinh Hung, chairman of the Vietbuild Construction International Exhibition Organising Corporation, said the expo would be a good forum for local and international businesses to meet and tie up.
Participation by foreign companies in the exhibition is increasing, with more than 500 coming this time. Nguyen Tran Nam, a former deputy construction minister and head of the exhibition organising board, called for greater participation by Vietnamese firms to promote locally made building materials as well as internal and external decorative items.
The expo will be held at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre in District 7.
