27 MAR 2017: World Built Environment Forum Annual Summit

World Built Environment Forum Annual Summit

Shanghai, 27-28 March 2017

The World Built Environment Forum is a global network of built environment professionals and their stakeholders aimed at combining knowledge, skills and resources to create and manage the built environment that global populations need.

Its Annual Summit brings together stakeholders from construction, real estate and infrastructure to explore common issues, how these interact across the built environment, and to create a basis for collaboration between disciplines. Join this international Summit to help shape the cities of the future.

The Annual Summit will:

  • explore how global macro trends will affect urban environments of the future, with a focus on China and wider Asia. What strategies should we adopt to take account of disruptive changes and create and sustain vibrant real estate markets, and to fund infrastructure needs? How can the construction industry meet pressing demands while adapting to the changing nature of cities?
  • take One Belt One Road as a reference point for all these issues. What lessons can be learned from the world’s leading gateway cities, and from city development in China? How can Chinese cities attract investment and how can cities globally compete for Chinese foreign direct investment in infrastructure and real estate?

Refrigeration & HVAC Indonesia

Focused on promoting technological advancements for three key sectors – Refrigeration & HVAC, Power & Renewable Energy and Food Cold Chain & Processing Technology, Refrigeration & HVAC Indonesia 2016 stands out as the country’s first integrated exhibition for Indonesia’s fast-growing refrigeration and climate control technology industries.

Organized by Pelita Promo Internusa (PPI) and expanded from its hugely successful International Indonesia Seafood & Meat Expo (IISM), Refrigeration & HVAC Indonesia will be the key sourcing, procurement and information event for the inter-linked refrigeration, climate, cooling, power, energy, cold chain and cold food processing businesses.

As Indonesia’s sole integrated solutions platform for the three sectors largely led by refrigeration and the HVAC segments, Mr. Sofianto Widjaja, Managing Director of PPI shared, “Refrigeration & HVAC Indonesia 2016 supports the rapid development of Indonesia’s energy infrastructure, sustainable building development and eco-construction works, retail, food supply, fishery, agriculture, hospitality and other sectors with its focus on advanced innovations with measurable use and productivity impacts.

Indonesia’s rising need for HVAC Equipment is backed by encouraging projections that the air conditioner market revenues will grow at 13% CAGR until 2018. Further to this, use of HVAC equipment will also be impacted by regulatory policies as the Indonesian government fulfils a USD 300 billion government investment in energy sector with USD 38 billion of its national spending going to renewable energy where 90% of its sources have remained unused.

As an industry-endorsed exhibition supported by ASHRAE Indonesia Chapter, Indonesian Professional Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Association (APITU), Green Building Council Indonesia (GBCI), Indonesian Professional Engineer Association (PIPI), Refrigeration & HVAC Indonesia 2016 provides the over 200 participating companies with an elevated platform to present their meaningful innovations and newest technologies exclusively to notable government authorities, business owners, trade specialists and all industry-related professionals.
