MCE in Saudi Arabia and Singapore, new opportunities for 2015
Green building, water saving and renewable energies: the business of the future in view of the new MCE appointments set for 2015
For the plant design industry, committed to energy efficiency, it will be the opportunity of jumping at not only one, but rather two brilliant occasions of expanding its business in those countries where the population, urban and economic growth rates, are the highest in the whole Southeast Asia.
According to Massimiliano Pierini, the Business Unit Director of Reed Exhibitions Italy, the purpose of the fair is to facilitate “the collaboration and mutual integration” between MCE exhibitors and the new emerging markets, given that the investments in building industry have clearly been relocated from old industrilized nations to developing countries, such as Saudi Arabia and Singapore, with an estimated 66% increase within 2017.
The MCE Saudi fair will take place in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, between 4 and 6 May 2015, and, according to estimates, thanks to the significant population and urbanization growth of the region, the building industry will be the main funding recipient, with investments estimated around 294 billion dollars within 2018. Similarly, the air-conditioning sector, in a country covering alone 50% demand for the whole Gulf region, will expect a growth in state funding estimated around 1.4 billion dollars within next year.
The MCE Asia fair will take place in Singapore, the world’s greenest city, between 2 and 4 September 2015, contextually to another unmissable appointment dedicated to green building experts, that is, the Building Eco Xpo (BEX), and it will involve once more the construction and plant design sectors, given that the main purpose of the namesake city-State is that of strengthening its world leadership in the field of green building.
