Da Nang (VNA) - More than 1,000 pavilions will be set up at the Vietbuild international exhibition, which will take place in the central city of Da Nang from May 15-19.

The event is expected to draw 300 businesses from the US, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Japan, China, India, Malaysia, the Republic of Korea and Vietnam to display their products.

Head of the organising board Nguyen Dinh Hung said 129 joint-venture and foreign businesses have registered to show off their production at the annual exhibition.

Hung said the exhibition – the largest ever in Da Nang since the first in 2004 – will focus on new construction materials, solar energy technology, furniture, ‘green’ technology, sustainable solutions and real estate.

“It will be one of the largest construction exhibitions in Vietnam since it debuted in 1995. Da Nang has been a top location for the event with good infrastructure and tourism services,” Hung said.

“50 percent of participating businesses will introduce smart home facilities and new construction materials at the exhibition including solar power, air filters, nano-tech cement and environmental-friendly furniture and materials.”

The exhibition will host different forums and conferences on new material for smart home architecture and design, while business matching events will be held at the exhibition centre.

Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Da Nang and Can Tho are regular destinations for 10 events of the Vietbuild exhibition annually, attracting the participation of 100,000 pavilions from 1,000 domestic and foreign enterprises.

Da Nang, which plays an important role as a logistical centre for the coastal central region and the East-West Economic Corridor that links Laos, Thailand, Myanmar and Vietnam, is designed as a leading ASEAN city. - VNA
