KUALA LUMPUR: Architects, interior designers and building industry players will be exposed to the latest innovations in their field at the ongoing 15th International Architecture, Interior Design & Building Exhibition (Archidex) here.

With 550 companies from all over the world at the massive exhibition, there will be product launches throughout the four-day event that ends on Saturday.

Held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, the trade exhibition consists of 1,520 booths from industry professionals from 17 countries including Malaysia, Austria, China, Germany, France, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and Spain.

The event also takes place concurrently with the 3rd Eco Building & Design Exhibition (Eco-B) held at the Mandarin Oriental, which is just next to the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.

The Eco-B exhibition caters to the growing interest in green building technologies and solutions.

Both Archidex and Eco-B are jointly organised by the Malaysian Institute of Architects and C.I.S Network Sdn Bhd.

C.I.S. Network’s president, Datuk Vincent Lim, said this year’s event saw a 10% increase in the number of exhibitors compared to last year.

“Nearly one-third (32%) of the 550 local and international companies are new exhibitors.

“There will also be five country pavilions in this exhibition – from Austria, Germany, Singapore, South Korea and China,” he said during the launch ceremony of the exhibition here yesterday.

The trade exhibition is part of six major events held in conjunction with the 16th Asian Congress of Architects, a bi-annual architecture conference.

Visitors to the exhibition will have the chance to win prizes, including a pair of tickets to Munich sponsored by German door supplier, Hörmann.

The event is open to those aged 16 years and above. While entrance is free, registration is required for entry. For more information, go to archidex.com.my.
