THE Engineering Exhibition and Conference 2023 Malaysia (ENGINEER) and its concurrent Air-Conditioning, Refrigeration and Ventilation Exhibition 2023 Malaysia (MARVEX) showcased an exclusive preview of next year’s key highlights.
To be held from Sept 6 to 9, 2023 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, the exhibition will gather key industry and engineering leaders from both local and across the Asean region, including engineering and allied professionals, government delegations, industry players, trade associations, business chambers as well as international investors to experience the changes in the industry as businesses embrace digitalisation and Environmental, Social, and Governance- (ESG) inspired technology.
With ESG topping the business agenda, Engineer and Marvex will lead the movement to heed the social and environmental challenges, and discuss solutions to solve problems that could potentially plague the future generation.
Themed “The Business Gateway to Asean Engineering and ACMV & R”, the exhibition will converge the engineering fraternity in the region and aspire to elevate their standards and capabilities to be internationally recognised.
Engineer, an event of IEM Convention, is jointly organised by the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) and C.I.S, while MARVEX is jointly organised by the Malaysian Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Association (MACRA) and C.I.S.
The preview enables the industry to realise the opportunities present as economies emerge post-pandemic, into a more digitised and automated environment where businesses are focused on harmonising customer experience and concerns for nature.
The exhibition will showcase breakthrough products and solutions built on transformational technology in the engineering world.
With climate change and increased focus on achieving the zero-carbon target, delegates will be able to learn more about new technologies that promote sustainability with renewable energy, low carbon emissions and low waste production.
The Engineering and Air-conditioning, Refrigeration and Ventilation (ACMV & R) industries will come together for four days from Sept 6 to 9, 2023 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. It will be the premier platform positioned as the intermediary for the next engineering revolution playing a vital role in the economic integration of the region.
“ENGINEER and MARVEX in March this year has brought to the industry’s attention new and efficient technologies with the capabilities to catalyse the government’s aspiration of digitalising our industries.
"Next year, I look forward to seeing an even better display of new technology, especially green technology that will help us harness the capacity of the construction sector and cut emission rates and achieve energy savings.
"This will set the standard and the pace for the industry as we move forward to become a developed nation”, said Public Works Department deputy director-general (building sector) Rahmat Abdul Rahman at the preview session.
ENGINEER and MARVEX 2023 will also be an avenue for the industry to exchange ideas and stay abreast with the latest trends through a series of business and industry talks, conferences and symposiums. Key global issues and challenges will be discussed and potential solutions weighed in.
IEM president Prof Dr Norlida Buniyamin said, "With less than ten years to achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, there is an urgency to examine global systems and balance human aspirations with the planet’s ability to sustain them.
"ENGINEER 2023 will be an event that encourages the industry players to look into green solutions to preserve the planet for better lives.
"I urge the suppliers, manufacturers and engineers to take advantage of this platform to stay relevant. We aim to bring you the insights, innovation and influence of global stakeholders who have the power to bring real change."
Another area of significance today is the relevance of air-conditioning and ventilation systems with the capability to filter viruses and bacteria, apart from pollutants. As the power-economies of Southeast-Asia rise, air-cond sales are projected to grow 700% from 2017 to reach 300 million units by 2040.
The largest driver of air-cond sales will be Indonesia, accounting for half the demand. Businesses today are also seeking fittings and fixtures that are zero-carbon, energy efficient or even built on renewable energy technology.
“I hope you see the incredible value and worthwhile experience Marvex offers, uniting industry professionals and experts, brands and potential business partners.
"This is the place to meet suppliers and manufacturers of remarkable ESG-inspired solutions that could potentially revolutionise the industry and make the world better for us all,” said Malaysian Air-Conditioning & Refrigeration Association’s (MACRA) president Peter Tan.
C.I.S president Datuk Vincent Lim, shared that he is proud to partner industry associations like IEM and MACRA to organise ENGINEER and MARVEX to uplift the industry.
“It is our part to create this business event platform that gathers all the industry players and stakeholders with the same vision for a focused engineering and ACMV & R event to facilitate business, learning and networking.”
The preview kicked-off with a sneak peek of the events and activities lined-up for the next
show in 2023, which included the specially curated conferences and symposiums on electrotechnical, digital transformation, project management and water resources under the IEM Convention.
There will be networking dinners, cocktails, business and industry talks which exhibitors can leverage on to meet, greet and mingle with prospective buyers, engineers, consultants and specifiers or launch new products.
