HCM CITY — VIETBUILD Home, the annual housing, home decoration and household appliance exhibition,, will take place at the Sài Gòn Exhibition and Convention Centre tomorrow, enabling people to shop for the upcoming New Year holidays.

Nearly 450 exhibitors from 12 countries and territories, including South Korea, Japan, Singapore, China, the US, India, Germany and Việt Nam will set up 1,500 booths, an increase of 30 per cent from last year.

The expo will showcase new products related to construction, intelligent housing systems, interior and exterior decoration, as well as household equipment like air conditioners, kitchen utensils and more.

Property transaction floors will introduce housing for low-income earners together with incentives.

Nguyễn Trần Nam, chairman of the Việt Nam Real Estate Association and head of the organisation board, said the demand for interior and exterior furnishings usually increases at the year-end, as people renovate their homes to welcome Tết, the Lunar New Year.

The five-day event is therefore well-timed for companies to market their products and consumers to look for home decor, he added.

The exhibition will also serve as a forum for local and international businesses to meet and discuss co-operation. — VNS
