ICVeX, the professional trade exhibition organizer, based in Thailand and owner of Myanmar Build & Décor, joined hands with the Cambodian Society of Architects, to organize the first ever Cambodia Architect & Décor Expo 2016 to serve the growing demand for building, construction and landscape materials in the architecture, interior design, furniture and decoration industries.
 
The expo is scheduled to be held from June 9 to 11 at the Diamond Island Exhibition & Convention Center in Phnom Penh.
 
Pheung Sophean, the state secretary of the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction, said the government supported such an event to show the international potential of the Cambodian construction sector.
 
“Cambodia Architect & Décor 2016 will be the industry platform for education, knowledge exchange and sharing, as well as the best source for building materials, interior design, furniture, and decor. The range of exhibits includes building materials, interior and exterior exhibits, and mechanical and engineering products and solutions,” said Mr. Sophean.  
 
According to Ajinveat Vhongthong, project manager of ICVeX, the expo will showcase over 100 brands with exhibitors coming from Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, China, the United States, Europe, Middle East and other countries.
 
“Over 90 percent of the exhibitors are from overseas,” said Mr. Ajinveat.
 
Sen Socheat, vice president of the Cambodian Society of Architects, the other organizer of the expo, said it would be an important catalyst for improving the quality of construction materials, and modernizing the architecture, designing and building construction sectors.
 
“The event is a must for trade professionals, contractors, engineers, architects, interior designers as well as property developers, hoteliers and resort owners,” said Mr. Socheat. “It’s a good opportunity for them to network and also to be aware of the various products that are available internationally,” he said.
 
The Cambodia Society of Architects was established in 2008 and legally registered in 2016 as a professional organization to promote the profession in collaboration with the Board of Architects Cambodia. ICVeX Co Ltd is a subsidiary of Index Creative Village PCL (ICV), the conglomerate group of Creative Business leaders in Thailand that provides creative and marketing communications services as well as supplying a one-stop service for marketing and equipment rental.
 
Investment in the construction sector reached a record $1.67 billion this first quarter, with 473 construction projects approved in the same period. This translates to 3.7 million square meters in total, according to Pen Sophal, secretary of state of the Ministry of  Land Management, Urban Planning, and Construction.
