Vietbuild 2013, the largest national construction exhibition, opened on June 13 at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre.

The five-day event themed “Construction – Construction Material – Property – Internal and External Decoration” has drawn the participation of more than 800 domestic and foreign companies, with 2,200 booths displaying their products and services.

Apart from traditional products like building materials, internal and external decorations, Vietbuild 2013 also displays many new and environmentally friendly products, including hi-tech gadgets to serve modern life such as a smart house and solar energy system.

Despite difficulties, nearly 500 domestic businesses operating in the property sector are present at the show, including big names such as Viglacera, Hoa Sen Group and Phu Thanh Aluminium Company.

During the exhibition, four conferences relating to the building sector are scheduled to be held.

According to organisers, Vietbuild 2013 will be held again for the second time in the same place from August 14-18 with the theme “Property and Internal and External Decoration”.-VNA
