CIDB Malaysia partnership with Qube Integrated Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. until 2027 to organise ICW
KUALA LUMPUR, 17 MARCH 2023 – The annual International Construction Week 2023 (ICW 2023), hosted by the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Malaysia, is back for its 22nd edition to be held at MITEC Kuala Lumpur from 15 - 17 November 2023. ICW 2023 will feature BuildXpo which is a mega exhibition covering the whole supply chain of the construction industry. BuildXpo will be organized by Qube Integrated Malaysia Sdn. Bhd., an international exhibition & event provider.
The soft-launch of ICW & BuildXpo 2023 was announced today at a ceremony officiated by Datuk Ir. Ahmad ‘Asri Bin Abdul Hamid, Chief Executive of CIDB. Present also was Mr Richard Teo, Executive Chairman of Qube Integrated Malaysia Sdn. Bhd.
The ICW has been the premier annual event for the construction industry in Malaysia for more than 20 years. ICW 2023 themed “Leading ESG in Construction” features Conferences, Seminars, Business Matching and a series of open forum and technology talks. Its exhibition component, BuildXpo is expected to attract 500 exhibitors and more than 10,000 trade visitors.
“Over the years, ICW has established itself as the flagship event for the construction industry, which in turn has helped to uplift the image of the industry, in Malaysia as well as the region. ICW will enable construction industry stakeholders to be introduced to new products and technologies, as well as explore the innovations available in the market. This includes new sustainable materials and energy sources, innovative design approaches, as well as advances in digital technology, in line with the ICW 2023 theme “Leading ESG in Construction”,” said Datuk Ir. Ahmad ‘Asri Bin Abdul Hamid, Chief Executive of CIDB.
“With such a prestigious international profile, ICW 2023 is also a tremendous opportunity for Malaysian construction industry players to network and build collaboration for the continued innovation in the construction industry in the region. I believe that the knowledge shared and the networks formed will be instrumental to continue revolutionising the Malaysian construction industry into one that is highly-sustainable and resilient,” he added.
BuildXpo was launched by Dato’ Wira Wan Ahmad Uzair, Secretary General, Ministry of Works last year during ICW 2022 opening ceremony, a brand new construction showcase which is a collaborative effort between CIDB and Qube Integrated Malaysia Sdn Bhd. BuildXpo is a premium construction exhibition in Malaysia, the region and globally organized by Qube Integrated, a Malaysian company with vast experience in organising large scale exhibitions. Through BuildXpo, the exhibition will generate even more interest, activities and partnerships towards a more robust construction industry.
