SINGAPORE – Following the resounding success of the inaugural presentation of the Architecture & Building Services (ABS) 2014, the next edition will feature six established exhibitions co-located at the Marina Bay Sands Expo Centre from 29 September to 1 October 2015.
ABS 2015 will encompass: ArchXpo, International Facility Management Expo (iFAME), LED+Light Asia, Fire & Disaster Asia (FDA), Safety & Security Asia (SSA) and Work Safe Asia (WSA), being presented by Conference & Exhibition Management Services (CEMS).
Collectively, the six exhibitions are expected to occupy 10,000 square metres of gross exhibition space, with 250 exhibitors from 20 countries and 9,000 trade visitors and professionals from 40 countries. This marks a projected 30% increase in exhibitors and an approximate 10% increment in visitors.
ABS 2015 will therefore be the largest platform in Singapore and the region that will bring six established exhibitions covering the entire spectrum of the construction industry and built environment through the incorporation of architecture, facility management, LED and lighting solutions, security, fire and disaster management as well as workplace safety under one roof.
The exhibitions will also aim to attract the largest gathering of architects, builders, contractors, developers, engineers, facility managers and government agencies during the run of ABS 2015.
Continuing with last year’s conference-driven exhibition or convex model, ABS 2015 will feature six conferences catering to each sector of the building industry and will expect to see at least 2,600 delegates across the board. This will bolster the wide array of exhibits presented at ABS 2015 to value- add to the visitors’ learning experience at the exhibitions.
The Specialists Trade Alliance of Singapore (STAS), Host of iFAME and Strategic Partner of ArchXpo, has also announced that it will be hosting its 10th Anniversary celebrations in conjunction with ABS 2015 through a series of highlights to be announced at a later date.
Other highlights include the 8th Merlion Awards which will be presented to exceptional new designs and products in the field of security; as well as the 2nd UP Awards which are presented to exhibitors that demonstrate flair and innovation in booth design.It would seem that this convex model of conferences and exhibitions is proving to be a successful one with exhibitors of ArchXpo 2014 singing praises for the inaugural edition of ABS held last year from 29 September – 1 October 2014, also at Marina Bay Sands.
“It is good that [CEMS] incorporated other events to bring crowd to the exhibitions...overall environment [looked] good,” said a spokesman of Buildo Engineering Pte Ltd while Getz Bros. & Co. (Singapore), Pte Ltd added, “Very good show. Keep it going! It was a very successful [exhibition] with a good crowd”.
To keep up the name that ABS series has made for itself, CEMS will continue working closely with key players in the industry such as the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA), Co-Organiser of ArchXpo; International Facility Management Association Singapore Chapter (IFMA), Strategic Partner of iFAME; and Security Systems Association of Singapore (SSAS), Host of SSA.
Supporting all the exhibitions are also the 11 STAS Member Associations: Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Association of Singapore; Micro Builders Association, Singapore; Security Systems Association of Singapore; Singapore Building Materials Suppliers Association; Singapore Electrical Contractors and Licensed Electrical Workers Association; Singapore Electrical Trade Association; Singapore Furniture Industries Council; Singapore Glass Association; Singapore Plumbing Society; Singapore Sanitary Ware Importers & Exporters Association; and The Singapore Lift & Escalator Contractors & Manufacturers Association.
Together, the repertoire of exhibitions will be geared towards providing an integrated marketing platform for Southeast Asia’s architectural and building industries where trade professionals can source for the highest quality cutting-edge technologies, innovative products and related services, as well as network with like-minded professionals, key players and delegates during networking events and conferences.
