Caspian Construction Week starts in Baku

Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct 16 /Trend/

BakuBuild 2012, the 18th Azerbaijan International Construction Exhibition and the largest building exhibition in the Caspian Region, will open on October 17 at the Baku Expo Center and mark the opening of the Caspian Construction Week, Iteca Caspian LLC said on Tuesday.

Azerbaijan's construction industry is today one of the fastest-growing sectors, and this is reflected in the specialised BakuBuild 2012 exhibition, an event showing growth and meeting the constantly expanding demands of the market.

Support of the government agencies is very important for the success of the exhibition. BakuBuild is supported by the Ministry of Economic Development of Azerbaijan, State Committee for Urban Planning and Architecture, National Confederation of Entrepreneurs (employers) of Azerbaijan and Azerbaijani Fund Export and Investment Promotion (AZPROMO).

BakuBuild is organised by ITE Group plc and Iteca Caspian.

BakuBuild is officially sponsored by Holcim Azerbaijan. Partners of the international exhibitions in 2012 are mobile operator Nar Mobile (communication partner), the company AZAL (official avia carrier), Hilton Baku and Qafqaz Point Hotel (official hotels).

The Caspian Construction Week will for the first time take up all three of Baku Expo Center's halls, as well as a corridor and a new outdoor space, posting a 20% growth in exhibition space.

BakuBuild 2012 will welcome 455 exhibiting companies from 31 countries, with 60% of exhibitors regular participants that are once again using the show to promote their products in the Caspian market.

One of BakuBuild's traditions is active participation from collective stands, and seven of these are taking part this year, among them regularly-appearing national groups from Finland, Germany, Italy, Iran, Spain and Portugal. The Greek national group is making its debut this year, exhibiting with the support of HEPO, the Greek Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Turkish firms are once again looking towards Azerbaijan's market by booking a large amount of exhibition space, and participation from Chinese firms has increased. As well as this, the year-on-year rise in domestic companies at the event is particularly encouraging for the organisers, firms from Azerbaijan making up 35% of all exhibitors. The percentage of exhibitors that are newcomers rises every year, this year reaching 30% of the total.

One of BakuBuild's features is its universal character. The full range of building products and services, new designs and innovative technologies can be found here, from simple tools to landscape design.

BakuBuild is again presenting a rich assortment of building equipment, finishing and cladding materials, sanitary ware, windows, doors and much more.

The exhibition is set to please the visitors with a whole range of presentations - in line with fast-growing hotel construction in Azerbaijan, special lighting devices and equipment and exclusive chandeliers for hotels, mansions and residential complexes will be presented. Producers and distributors will showcase exclusive furniture for hotels and offices, new roofing and flooring developments, and liquid wallpaper.

A presentation of skylight windows for lofts will be completely new.

Since last year the exhibition has attracted companies working in urban equipment for children and people with disabilities, and this year real models of children's playground equipment can be seen as well as various devices to ensure comfortable urban living for people with disabilities.

A new sector this year is Real Estate, presenting offerings in Turkish resort regions.

Machinery from the following leading brands will be on display in the outdoor exhibition located next to the complex: AzTexnika, (Azerbaijan), HIDROKON (Turkey), Hyundai (South Korea), Intertechnics (Azerbaijan), LTS MMC (Azerbaijan), MANN (Germany), Manitou (Azerbaijan), Prolink Caspian (Azerbaijan), VOLVO (Sweden), Wirtgen (Germany), Faymonville (Belgium), JCB (UK) and others.

The business programme that traditionally accompanies the exhibition includes presentations, seminars and masterclasses. The topical issue of Azerbaijan's new urban planning code will be touched on by the 'New construction code of Azerbaijan: practical issues' seminar, held on 17 October and organised by ADM Legal.

Of particular interest to furniture producers, designers, architects and advertisers is the seminar 'High polish and deep relief, the breathtaking sight of decoration and easy application - SIBU and Niemann have the answer!" organised on 18 October by GuT Import-Export GmbH.

Seminars will also be held within Aqua-Therm Baku 2012. More information on the topics and descriptions of seminars can be found on the exhibition websites and Facebook pages.

The construction club meeting organised by the Caspian-European Integration Business Club, with support from Iteca Caspian, planned for 18 October in the Baku Expo Centre and entitled 'Prospects and development of the construction industry of the region', forms part of the business programme. Government representatives will inform club members of the activity of relevant government bodies and give individual answers to questions relating to the development of the construction sector and the use of governmental standards in construction. A range of exhibiting companies will also give speeches and presentations as part of the meeting.

All the latest news on the Caspian Construction Week will be posted on,,, and on social networks. Two editions of the exhibition's Daily News are also scheduled, which will cover exhibitors and events within BakuBuild.

Giving a fresh boost to construction market development in Azerbaijan and abroad by activating partnership between domestic and international producers and consumers of building materials and services, BakuBuild is once again confirming its status as a regional centre for establishing new business contacts and partnerships, and for industry experts to exchange experience and the latest information. The exhibition closes on 20 October.
