Posted by Kaeden Ong on 25th July 2014 in Blog

The International Green Building Conference (IGBC) and Build Eco Xpo (BEX) Asia will run from 1 to 3 September 2014 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre.

These events are hosted by Building and Construction Authority of Singapore (BCA), in partnership with Reed Exhibitions.

Both events highlights Singapore’s vision to be a global leader in green buildings.

Dr John Keung, CEO of BCA said there are currently more than 62 million sq m of green Gross Floor Area (GFA) in Singapore, translating to more than 25 percent of the total GFA.

“To further the green agenda – not just in Singapore, but across the region – newsmakers and experts will be convening at this year’s IGBC, which will provide the platform for discourse and exchange on the concerted effort to lead, engage and sustain the push towards a greener and more sustainable built environment for all,” he said.

International green building experts, policymakers, academics and built environment practitioners will attend IGBC 2014. They can participate in the Green Mark Tours which will allow them to see and experience some of the innovative green building practices and technologies implemented in Singapore today.

Meanwhile, over 350 companies from around the world are expected to showcase related new and innovative products at BEX Asia 2014.

The IGBC and BEX are held as part of the sixth edition of the Singapore Green Building Week (SGBW) 2014, which will happen from 1 to 7 September 2014.
