Amidst the global challenges of rapid urbanisation, climate change and digital disruption, there lie opportunities for transformative changes in the built environment sector. Singapore is embracing and capitalising on this window of opportunity to change the way the sector builds and operates, with the launch of Industry Transformation Maps for construction and facilities management in the past 2 years. It has been exhilarating times for the built environment sector since.
To support the transformation, we are excited to bring you the International Built Environment Week (IBEW), where we celebrate milestone achievements, learn about the latest advancements and the most innovative developments in the sector. This new flagship event builds on the success of the preceding Singapore Green Building Week/International Green Building Conference and Singapore Construction Productivity Week, to offer the first fully-integrated event in the Asia Pacific that covers the entire built environment life cycle and value chain.
The IBEW 2019 is themed ‘Transforming the way we build’, and will showcase today’s best practices and tomorrow’s innovations in four key areas of transformation: sustainability, construction productivity, digitalisation and smart facilities management. With over 12,000 delegates from across the globe convening at the IBEW, along with over 100 expert speakers and 550 exhibitors, the IBEW will be a great gathering of the like-minded, and offer the perfect platform to exchange ideas and experiences, as well as widen business networks and discover new opportunities.
We look forward to seeing you at IBEW 2019!
