lets roll

Home mix

We hereby introduce you the Green Building Expo and Conference 2016 that evolved from the Serbia Green Building Expo which since the first edition was an event that represents a landmark for sustainable building in the Balkans.

The new edition 2016 intents to move the spotlight not only to the regional market but also to a part of Europe that due to international activities and investments, in the field of sustainable building, is very interested and attentive to all the most innovative trends and sustainability and energy efficiency technologies applicable to buildings.

The previous editions, confirmed our hopes, which we were certain of, in practice: we registered the participation of about 50 exhibitors with an attendance of more than 3,500 trade visitors - a particularly significant figure, especially if we consider the difficulties that the construction industry has experienced - a success which we firmly believe is the result of a long and patient work.

Ever since the end of the 2013 edition, we are committed to building a fair able to represent in most effective manner a sector, which is increasingly becoming a moving force of the world`s economies.

We have gathered, around a proposal for business that is useful, ethical and positive also for the community, a large group of leading companies, institutions and visionary leaders, who have recognized the need to be suggestive and proactive on the market.

This brought us the idea to revive the Green Building Expo and Conference with the aim of creating an environment for reflection and education as well as exhibition of projects, products and solutions for the world of green buildings.

When we talk about green buildings, we are talking about improving the quality of life, about the future development, ours and our childrens` and about well-being, which finally meet without colliding with the opportunities for business and growth of our companies; Green Building Expo and Conference represents also this.

The new 2016 edition aims to gather even greater number of exceptional speakers and exhibitors of international importance.

We are waiting for you !
