INTERMAT ASEAN and CONCRETE ASIA 2019 – the Southeast Asian trade show for construction and infrastructure; and the International exhibition for the Asian concrete sector - were successfully held from 5 to 7 September 2019, at IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Centre, Bangkok, Thailand.
The two co-located events attracted over 5,760 industry professionals from 31 countries, and featured more than 300 exhibiting brands from 16 countries, including Australia, Belgium, China, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Russia, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom and the United States. The level of international participation reflects the importance of Thailand as a key industry meeting point for the construction, infrastructure and concrete sectors in the Southeast Asian region.
According to Mr. Calvin Ang, Executive Director, Siam Industrial Corporation, who has exhibited at INTERMAT ASEAN since the first edition, “INTERMAT ASEAN has been improving every year. We are getting more quality visitors and potential customers. We will definitely come back again next year.”
Mr. Loy Joon How, General Manager, IMPACT Exhibition Management Co., Ltd, said “INTERMAT ASEAN and Concrete Asia were held in response to support the region’s growing demands. In this year’s edition, we are pleased to have organized over 460 business-matching meetings between exhibitors and invited buyers, generating about THB 200 million worth of on-site sales. The market outlook looks positive with the recent infrastructure development initiatives announced by the government. Hence I am not surprised that machineries and equipment were sold on-site during the exhibitions.”
The two exhibitions provided the platform for the Thailand government to highlight to the gathered industry its current and upcoming mega infrastructure development projects worth over THB 27.7 billion, especially on transportation infrastructure in the Eastern Economic Corridor that includes road constructions, high-speed rail and other transportation and logistics infrastructure developments.
INTERMAT ASEAN and Concrete Asia are thankful for the strong support accorded by the various related government agencies. Mr. Sorapong Paitoonphong, Deputy Director General, Department of Rail Transport, Ministry of Transport, presided over the opening ceremony and Mr. Prasak Bandhunnark, Deputy Director General, Department of Rural Roads, Ministry of Transport, joined the networking events with our key exhibitors.
