During the exhibition, a series of community events such as symposiums, talks and guided tours will take place. The first symposium will be held on 5 January 2018 for the public discussing “How Technology will shape the future Built Environment?”.
IT is impacting every sector of life. In the building industry, technology has provided professionals with more freedom and aids in design, visualization and planning. Apart from these, technology is bringing new patterns of uses, new building types, and new ways of procurement and is redefining the meaning of “location” in real estate.

This symposium attempts to give an update on the latest technological scenes in the building industry, and bring professionals together to discuss and exchange with the public on hot topics related to how technology impacts architecture and real estate. Free admission.
