Post Show release of BakuBuild 2010

BakuBuild 2010, the 16th Azerbaijan International Construction Exhibition, took place in Baku Expo Centre on 20-23 October. Against the backdrop of major transformations in the construction sector and increasing housing construction and investment in the industry, the BakuBuild exhibition has become the main professional event of the construction industry in the Caucasus and Caspian regions. BakuBuild was supported by the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Azerbaijan, State Committee for Urban Planning and Architecture of the Republic of Azerbaijan, National Confederation of Entrepreneurs (Employers) Organisations of the Republic of Azerbaijan, and Union of Architects of Azerbaijan. The exhibition was organised by ITE Group (UK) and its partner in the Caucasus, Iteca Caspian. The key to the success of the exhibition is the coordinated work of ITE Groups network of partners - EUF (Turkey), GiMA (Germany), ITE Gulf (UAE), International Show srl. (Italy), ITE China and ITE Poland - which attract international companies to participate in the exhibition. The partners of the autumn exhibitions in 2010 were Azerfon-Vodafone, Pasha Sigorta, Caspel, Greenwich Travel Club, SIAR and Kavkaz Point Hotel

The opening ceremony, which was held on 20 October at 11am, was attended by Mr Dovletkhan Dovlekhanov, Deputy Chairman of the State Committee for Urban Planning and Architecture; Mr. Fakhraddin Sadigov, Deputy Director of the State Agency for Building Safety Inspection of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Azerbaijan; Mr. Mamed Musayev, President of the National Confederation of Entrepreneurs (Employers) Organisations of the Republic of Azerbaijan; Mr. Hulusi Kilic, Turkish Ambassador to Azerbaijan; and Mr Edward Strachan, Executive Director of ITE Group Plc. After the ceremony, there was a VIP tour of the exhibition, with the participation of representatives of government organisations, embassies, large companies and the press.

This year, 285 companies from 26 countries exhibited at the show. The growth of BakuBuild 2010 in terms of the number of exhibitors was 20% compared with last year. The exhibition area was 10,992m², which is a record for the event. Azerbaijani companies actively participated in the exhibition, accounting for 55% of the total area. Along with the individual stands at BakuBuild there were six group stands, including the German national stand, organised in close cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology and Association of the German Trade Fair Industry, and Finish and Iranian national groups. For the second consecutive year, the exhibition featured the national stand of Lithuania. At its national stand, Ukraine demonstrated its potential in the construction industry for the first time at the exhibition. Ukraines participation was supported by the Ministry of Economic Development of Ukraine. Another newcomer was the Italian national stand, which was organised with the assistance of the Pro-Brixia Chamber of Commerce, and included companies from the Italian province of Brescia.

The exhibitors presented modern technologies for residential and industrial construction and a huge variety of building and interior decoration materials and technologies. The outdoor area displayed a large assortment of road building machinery from Germany, Turkey, South Korea, UK, Russia, Italy and other countries.

BakuBuild was accompanied by a comprehensive business programme. On 22 October, there was a Ukrainian-Azerbaijan business forum. The event was attended by officials of Azerbaijan and Ukraine, businessmen working in construction, engineering, industry and other sectors. The following people spoke at the business forum: Jahangir Godjaev, Head of International Relations and Information, Committee for Urban Planning and Architecture of Azerbaijan; Rufat Mammadov, Deputy President of the Export and Investment Promotion Foundation in Azerbaijan; Saib Mustafayev, Head of Sector, State Agency for Procurement; Oksana Grishkevich and Vladimir Shushik, representatives of the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine; and other officials. The forum discussed the opportunities for the development of existing economic relations, increasing the number of joint ventures, the diversification of exports and imports, and the importance of holding business forums and business meetings.

An important component of the business programme was the roundtable discussion entitled A City for All, which focused on innovative technologies and urban planning, with consideration of special provisions for the elderly, disabled and youngest residents of the city. The roundtable was chaired by Mr. Elnur Sultanov, Head of International Cooperation, Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Republic of Azerbaijan. The forum was attended by Jahangir Godjaev, Head of International Relations and Information, Committee for Urban Planning and Architecture of Azerbaijan, representatives of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Azerbaijan, and representatives of the executive authorities of Baku city and other government agencies, who spoke in detail about their work and the preliminary results of the accession programme to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which Azerbaijan joined recently.

The exhibition included many presentations of new products within the Innovation Zone programme. Consumers were introduced to unique thermal insulation and sealing materials, new generation roofing materials, multi-purpose cutters, cleaning filters, fillers, kilns, new kinds of sectional gates, exclusive blacksmithing products, precast construction technology - which reduces construction costs by up to 30% - a portable autonomous powder coating system, and much more. The stands of companies presenting new products and technologies displayed a special Innovation Zone sign, making it easy to find these companies, both in the exhibition and on the plan. A detailed description of all the products, technologies and services presented, and the contact details of the companies, was given in the Innovation Zone catalogue, which was distributed in Baku Expo Centre during the exhibition.

An important advantage of the exhibition was its visitors, 75% of whom were construction industry professionals. The total attendance for the four days amounted to more than 9,279 people. According to a survey, most of the exhibitors had, on average, 10-12 productive meetings with potential partners each day, some of which ended with the signing of contracts or opportunities for cooperation in the near future. Every sixth or seventh visitor to the exhibition attracted the attention of foreign exhibitors, both as a future partner and potential customer.

Aqua-Therm Baku - the International Exhibition for Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning, Water Supply, Sanitary and Environmental Protection Technologies and Caspian MebelExpo - the Caspian International Furniture, Interiors and Design Exhibition were held alongside BakuBuild.

Experience has shown that holding exhibitions covering similar topics together creates an opportunity for more effective cooperation between companies interested in finding partners in related areas. In addition, the co-location of these projects saved visitors considerable time. Over the 4 days of the exhibitions, the visitors were able to address the issue of repairing or improving their home or office.

The exhibition purposefully demonstrated the functionality and merits of modern high-quality construction. As noted by visitors, the main principles of the exhibition were housing modernisation, a new urban planning design principle, and finding the most convenient forms of accommodation in the city. Next year, the exhibition will be held on 19-22 October.
