ZimBuild Expo scheduled for November


NEARLY 150 players are expected to participate at this year’s ZimBuild expo scheduled from November 20-23. The expo has become an annual platform to enhance the infrastructure, building, construction and allied trades in the built environment in the country. Synergies have been developed as a result of this expo which is now in its third year, improving the construction sector’s involvement in planning and budgeting activities at national level. The expo is also an opportunity for the sector to take stock of itself.It is an opportunity for the industry to communicate with the right people and service providers to unveil what is available from the local market and what is not available. “With its conference, exhibition and awards, ZimBuild is an ideal venue great place for representatives of the infrastructure, building and construction sectors and allied trades from Zimbabwe and the region, to meet, showcase products and services, and discuss issues of common interest,” said Monica Kanyepi, the chief executive officer.

Infrastructure delivery and refurbishment, building and construction, are key to igniting economic growth for the nation. ZimBuild has maintained the perspective that the reconstruction and the development of the economy in Zimbabwe should be integrally linked to the reconstruction and development of the construction industry. The past two years the expo has presented an exciting opportunity for the infrastructure cluster in government, private sector, investors and financiers, academia and other players in the built environment to interact. Government is on record saying infrastructure cluster was critical in driving the economic recovery and growth of Zimbabwe, and therefore key to the exhibition and very central to its success.

Apart from the massive corporate support, ZimBuild has the endorsements of the Engineering Council of Zimbabwe, Construction Industry Federation of Zimbabwe, Institute of Architects Zimbabwe, and Zimbabwe Association of Consulting Engineers, Zimbabwe Institution of Engineers, Zimbabwe Institute of Regional and Urban Planners, Real Estate Institute, Zimbabwe Builders Contractors Association, Zimbabwe Construction Industry Council for the Construction Exhibition. At the Global Level, the World Council of Civil Engineers and The Federation of African Engineering Organisations partnered ZimBuild in the execution of this project. The National Employers Council of Zimbabwe representing the construction workers, also endorse the exhibition. —
