HCM City (VNA)VIETBUILD Home, the annual exhibition on housing, home decoration and household appliances, will be held in Ho Chi Minh City from December 14-18 when people shop for the New Year holidays.

This year the event will feature about 2,000 booths, over 30 percent higher than last year, set up by more than 450 exhibitors from 12 countries and territories, including the US, Italy, France, Germany, the UK, the Republic of Korea, Japan, Singapore, China, and Vietnam.

They will exhibit a wide range of new products related to construction, intelligent housing systems, and interior and exterior decoration besides household equipment like air conditioners, kitchen utensils and more.

There will be property transaction floors selling low-income housing and listing incentives.

A workshop on “Unbaked construction materials – green construction materials for green projects”, business forums and a customers’ conference will also be held to help businesses understand more about market demands.

Nguyen Tran Nam, chairman of the Vietnam Real Estate Association and head of the organisation board, said the demand for interior and exterior furnishings usually increases at the year-end as people renovate their homes to welcome Tet (Lunar New Year) holidays.

The event is therefore well-timed, he added.

The expo will be held at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre in District 7.-VNA
