As Thailand and its surrounding ASEAN region continue to ease travel restrictions, the Building Construction Technology Expo 2022 (BCT Expo 2022) – one of the region’s key exhibition platforms for the construction industry – is set to return to its face-to-face setting, taking place at the Impact Exhibition and Convention Centre in Bangkok, Thailand from 21 to 23 September 2022.
The return of BCT Expo after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic is timely, since Thailand’s construction equipment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.34%, fuelled by demands in construction, transportation and renewable energy sectors as government investments in highway, metro and airport construction projects continue to rise, according to the show organiser, Impact Exhibition Management Co Ltd.
Correspondingly, the building and construction material market is also seeing an increase of between 3% and 5% growth this year, as it gets ready to re-engage and re-connect in a physical market setting during the BCT Expo, added Impact Exhibition Management.
BCT Expo 2022 is expected to take up over 5,000 sq m of exhibition space, showcasing a comprehensive range of building and construction technologies, digital and machinery systems and equipment, and products and solutions from over 100 exhibitors to over 4,000 trade visitors coming from all sectors of the building and construction industry across Thailand and the surrounding ASEAN region.
In keeping with digital transformation trends, the organiser said the event will continue with its theme ‘Towards Digitalisation of the Building and Construction Industry – Are you Ready?’, with focus on digital transformation of the building and construction industry to help drive the digital acceleration changes in every aspect of architectural design, building and construction through the adoption of digital technologies.
BCT Expo 2022 also aims to serve as a key regional knowledge exchange and networking platform for the building and construction communities to meet and share the latest technologies, updates, issues and trends through its series of interactive conferences, seminars and workshops.
The event is supported by over 37 international and local organisations, including Thailand’s Department of Public Works and Town and Country Planning, Italian Trade & Investment Agency, China Council for Promotion of International Trade, Thailand Building Information Modelling Association, India BIM Association, Thailand Facility Management Association, and Thailand Contractors Association, to name a few.
