INTERMAT ASEAN 2017
After three days of productive business discussions and networking sessions at the IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Centre in Bangkok, Thailand, the first edition of Intermat Asean – the Southeast Asian trade show for construction and infrastructure, ended on a positive note on 10 June 2017.

Organized by S.E. Intermat, a joint subsidiary of Comexposium and French trade organizations from the construction industry (CISMA and SEIMAT), Intermat saw more than 300 exhibiting brands and companies – including JCB, CASE Construction Equipment, Manitou Group, XCMG, Speedcrafts, Surelia Engineers, etc, who presented their latest machinery and equipment to 4,680 visitors from 43 countries.

Loy Joon How, GM, IMPACT Exhibition Management, stated, “Asean is one of the world’s most dynamic and fast-growing regions, and Thailand is strategically located within the heart of the region. As such, the region requires $60 billion in annual investments to support its infrastructure development needs. This was the motivating factor for us to stage Intermat Asean 2017 as the strategic regional construction platform to bring technology, innovation and support the growth of Asean’s construction industry and markets.”

Isabelle Alfano, Construction Business Unit Director, Comexposium Group, said, “We’re very heartened to generate such support for the first edition of Intermat Asean. It has facilitated a lot of business, and therefore, met the industry’s needs in Southeast Asia.”

She added that Thailand is a fast-growing country with strong construction challenges. “Through this show, we are trying to bring to the Asean market a platform that will bring experience and expertise from well-established construction equipment manufacturers to provide Asean professionals with strong and efficient solutions to meet their needs. This will lead the construction industry towards higher industry standards.”

Thailand is seeing a spate of infrastructure construction activities with the government building more high-speed rail projects, train systems, expressways, expansion of its airports. The Thai Ministry of Transport informed a gathering at the event that a total investment of 1.8 trillion baht ($53 billion) for 20 infrastructure projects has been outlined.

Travellers to Bangkok can see the city’s high-rises dotted with cranes and backhoes. Sajid Huseni, Assistant Director, Trade Exhibition Business, IMPACT, informed that the country is seeing increasing investments for infrastructure development with a lot of upcoming mega projects that will drive construction activity over the next 3-5 years. Plans include stretching the metro’s rapid transit system to 241 km from the present 11 km, with 11 lines and 148 stations in the next 10 years, and expanding and upgrading the airports.

Intermat Asean exhibits of the latest products and innovations from established manufacturers and suppliers will provide and support the Asean region with the right equipment and solutions to meet its growing infrastructure development needs. Displays included production and use of construction materials, earthmoving, civil engineering, concrete manufacture, buildings and work sites, lifting, handling, drilling, boring, road infrastructures, mining and quarry equipment, vehicles and transportation, components and accessories, demolition, recycling, etc.

The organizers are planning to take the show to other parts of the Asian countries like India, where a huge demand for construction equipment is anticipated due to the government’s focus on infrastructure development.
