HÀ NỘI — Green buildings are expected to set a new trend in the wave of the fourth industrial revolution, said Nguyễn Thái Hưng, deputy secretary of the Việt Nam Automation Association.
Addressing a press conference held in Hà Nội last week to discuss the BMAM & GBR Expo Asia 2017, Hưng said that green buildings ensured safety for people, as well as investment efficiency for real estate developers.
Picking on the trend, the BMAM & GBR Expo Asia 2017 — the 10th International Exhibition and Conference on Building Maintenance and Facilities Management — will be held in Thailand for the Asia market on September 20.
The three-day event will open the doors towards a wide range of products for the management of building, factory and town, security, fire and safety, as well as plant and machine maintenance, work space management, pest management and all other professional services under one roof.
It is held alongside GBR Expo Asia 2017 – the 7th International Exhibition and Conference on Green Building and Retrofits for the Asia Market. GBR Expo Asia 2017 features the latest update on green building trends, issues and knowledge, along with a panel discussion among industry players, making it attractive to developers and the building and construction industry. Various case studies and presentations will also be presented by industry speakers — local and international — with varied expertise and achievements.
The expo has launched a new campaign “Unlock the ASEAN FM and Green Building Potential," targeting Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar and Việt Nam for the purpose of bringing in buyers (government and association) from these countries.
Đỗ Dung from the IMPACT Official Representatives in Việt Nam, the expo’s organiser, said the event would help Vietnamese construction firms to pick up the new trend in the fourth industrial revolution to better integrate into the world.
In addition, it would be a good opportunity for local companies to exchange experiences with others while seeking business co-operation. — VNS
