Beijing International Convention Centre
IGEBC is the annual flagship event of the Chinese Ministry of Housing and Urban Rural Development (MOHURD) and the leading sustainable building event in China. This three-day expo is attended by over 3000 delegates and features a high-level international conference, over 300 exhibitors, 100 city mayors and numerous ambassadors & government ministers. The UK has been heavily involved in IGEBC since its inception & launch and MOHURD views the UK as world leaders in green building, sustainable and cleantech development, as re-iterated by Minister Qiu Baoxing during his recent official visit to the UK. United Technologies, Schneider Electric, BASF, Siemens, ARUP, Atkins and numerous world- leading companies feature at IGEBC alongside many leading Chinese companies who host numerous high profile seminars with extensive media coverage, including mainstream press and TV.
Cambridge Cleantech have secured funding support from UK Trade & Investment (TAP funding upto £2500 per company) to manage and run the UK Pavilion. They will be working with the China-Britain Business Council and the event’s official UK Agent, March Publishing Ltd to organise the UK’s participation in the 2014 event. The UK’s exhibition, conference speakers, seminars and business receptions at the IGEBC have an established record for world leadership, attracting large and high-quality audiences.
This is a major opportunity for UK companies to gain superb profile and access to China and win new business at the largest building market in the world, especially as this is the 10th anniversary of this expo which will receive additional media coverage.
