Message From Prof.Chitra Weddikkara (Chairperson Organizing Committee)

It is with great pleasure we welcome you to the 6th Construction Expo exhibition scheduled in June 2017. Themed “Towards a GREEN SRI LANKA”, the 2017 edition emphasizes on the social responsibility of living in a safer world.

The expo itself has improved in terms of participants and stall holders. Apart from the emphasis on Green Building, Green Products, Greening Environment, Eco Innovations & Entrepreneurship with climate changes in various parts of the globe having its effects on us it is very important for Constructor, Researches to reach out and explore new innovations to make our environment Green as well as promote the Entrepreneurship among our stakeholders in the construction Industry.

The event highlights the importance of resolving construction management problems through highlighting definition of sustainability and describing sustainable development as the fulfillment of human needs from simultaneous socio-economic and technological progress and conservation of natural resources.

Sri Lanka is currently witnessing a boom in infrastructure development. Many high-rise apartment projects and International chain of Hotels have begun their work here. The government has earmarked several development projects such as Water Supply Projects, Waste Water/ Sewage Treatment Plant Projects, Energy Sector Projects which are due to begin by 2017.

All this points to a direction of a need to have a specialized expo to cater to these demands. The organizers promise to attract many of the decision makers to this one of a kind exhibition.

I sincerely hope that many of you would take this opportunity to participate at the Construction Expo and showcase your many products and services to a large audience expected.

Looking forward to your valued partnership with us!

Message from Dr. Rohan Karunaratne (President - Ceylon Institute of Builders)

On behalf of Ceylon Institute of Builders (CIOB), the premier body of building and construction industry in Sri Lanka, I take great pleasure in welcoming you to “The Construction Expo 2017”.

Our institute is proud to have been a co-organizer of this annual exhibition since its inception. Over the last 5 years, the Exhibition has gained in prominence and is today considered to be Sri Lanka’s premier Construction, Machinery, Technology, Supplies & Service exhibition. The Construction Expo 2017 will provide many opportunities to all the major players of the construction industry and other allied industries to showcase their products & services to potential customers, decision makers, business people, construction professionals,consultants and general public. In line with the worldwide focus on sustainable development, the theme of the exhibition will be “Green Building Exhibition”.

It is my belief that the Construction expo is being held at the right time. In its quest to make Sri Lanka a regional hub, our Government has launched an ambitious program of physical infrastructure development to completely upgrade the sea, air, road, power and telecom backbone of the country.

In addition, the envisaged US$ 40 billion Mega polis & Western province development project to merge Colombo, Gampaha and Kalutura district to create a large Mega polis of international standard is already entering the implementation stages. All these development programmers will result in a construction boom and will provide ample opportunities to all industry stakeholders irrespective of their scale of operation. In this regard, the Construction Expo 2017 will provide the right platform for organizations to demonstrate their technologies and position themselves to benefit from the above mentioned opportunities.

Once again, I warmly welcome you to The Construction Expo 2017, the only Green Building Exhibition in Sri Lanka.
