architect: Building technology exposition as gateway to South-East Asia

Update: Munich/Bangkok, May 5, 2020 – Thailand's construction industry keeps on booming. The government continues to promote the country's expansion into ASEAN's high-tech hub and invests massively in various construction projects. As a result, promising market opportunities are opening up for international companies which are involved in planning, constructing and designing of buildings. The trade fair architect offers international producers and dealers from the interior fittings, design and decoration industry a platform to connect with Thai architects, contractors and other decision-makers. After the postponement of the original date due to the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), architect now takes place in Bangkok from April 27 to May 2, 2021, already for the 34th time.

Thailand's economy, the second biggest in South-East Asia, has been growing steadily for years. Besides the central position in the heart of the ASEAN region, reasons for this development are among others the increasing living standard of the growing middle class, state investments into infrastructure and the flourishing tourism industry. For the construction sector experts expect public and private investments to increase by seven to nine per cent each year until 2020. This construction boom entails wide sales opportunities for companies from abroad.

IMAG GmbH, a subsidiary of Messe München, is international sales partner of architect. For more information, please go to
