BATIMATEC 2020: International construction trade fair for North AfricaMunich/Algiers, January 16, 2020 – Up to the end of February it is possible to register for the international construction trade fair BATIMATEC 2020 in Algiers. The well-established event is considered as the most important platform for the building materials and building technology industry at the African continent. It takes place from April 19 to 23, 2020, already for the 23rd time. Since Algeria has been investing strongly in house building and infrastructure, the Algerian construction sector continues to be a growth market.
BATIMATEC 2020 expects at around 44,000 square meters about 1,300 exhibitors who present the full range of products and services for the construction industry, such as building materials, ceramics and stone, heating and ventilation, sanitary technology and interior fittings. In the past year, almost 40 per cent of the companies came from abroad. During the five event days, around 200,000 visitors kept themselves up to date on the latest trends of the industry.
Algeria has become the fourth biggest national economy in Africa, despite the political situation. Until 2050 the population is predicted to grow from 43 million people nowadays by almost 50 per cent up to 61 million inhabitants. Accordingly, the country continues to invest in large housing and infrastructure projects. Currently, the construction sector adds about twelve per cent to Algeria's gross domestic product.
