Build SL Housing and Construction Expo 2021 in May

Chamber of Construction Industry of Sri Lanka will be hosting the Build Sri Lanka Housing & Construction Expo from May 14 to 16 2021 at the BMICH. This premier exhibition will be the first to be held this year exclusively targeting the housing and construction needs and organized by a professional institution, in fact first since October 2020.

The exhibition will cover all aspects of housing and construction from foundation to interior decor, electrical and plumbing items, landscaping, and property development and constructions services.

The Build SL exhibition has been held unbroken for the past 16 years and has been a major event looked forward to by the builders and the homeowners and the discerning exhibitors have consciously selected the Build SL exhibition to showcase their products and services because this particular exhibition covers all aspects and draws many visitors across the spectrum seeking to fulfil their needs.

As the Government has recently relaxed the import of ceramic tiles and sanitary ware, which were banned last April, it will be a good opportunity for the companies selling these products to create public awareness as many will be still under the impression of the import ban on these.

Further, the Government is proceeding with many infrastructure developments costing Rs. 5,000 Billion during the period 2021 – 2025 which will require massive construction inputs. This will create a surge in construction activities in the future. Another motivating factor that will result in more construction demand is the low bank interest regime followed by the Government which will encourage more investments in property development.

There were some novel introductions last year such as the Property Developers gallery that showcased apartment sales and also recruitment of construction workers by some companies. These will be provided at this exhibition as well. The Property Developers gallery last year was a huge success as the developers who took part could conclude many sales.

The Chamber has received earnest requests from many stall-holders to continue with the exhibition this year because of the latent needs of those seeking to build and invest and also because of the overwhelmingly positive public response they received last year.

The Chamber is positive that the industry can surge forward and has even themed this year’s exhibition as “Yes - we can build Sri Lanka “and encourages exhibitors to come forward and make reservations for stall spaces early without malingering.
