As one of the largest premium comprehensive building trade shows in China, 
Expo Build China (www.expobuild.com) has built up its reputation through 21 
years of experience in the building industry, and has served as a gateway for 
investors and traders who want to approach the rapidly growing Chinese market. 
Expo Build China is organised by UBM Sinoexpo and supported by the 
Architectural Society of China and the China Institute of Interior Design. A 
great variety of high-tech building materials, innovative technologies and 
designs will be showcased at Expo Build China from 1-3 April 2013 at the 
Shanghai New International Expo Centre. As part of the international 
hospitality show, HDD Expo, it is estimated that Expo Build China will attract 
the participation of over 400 exhibitors and 40,000 visitors. 
With the strong support of timber industry associations such as European Wood, 
the American Hardwood Export Council, French Timber and Canada Wood, a special 
themed zone featuring wooden products and timber buildings will be set up 
alongside the main event. A series of influential timber industry forums will 
accompany this event, which will not only host talks on optimising the 
commercial value of wooden products in China, but will also serve as an 
important platform for exchanges among architects, designers, developers, 
traders and manufacturers. 
Based on its successful debut in 2012, the second edition of Ecobuild China, 
which is derived from the world's largest green building and new energy trade 
fair – Ecobuild in London – will be concurrently held at Expo Build China 
2013 in the form of a United Kingdom pavilion and a "green building" pavilion. 
It will combine the latest innovative technologies and products in sustainable 
architectural design with a host of cutting-edge conferences, as well as team 
thought-leadership and practical application featuring suppliers of products 
and solutions for sustainable buildings and green technologies. A large 
academic delegation from the United Kingdom such as the British Research 
Establishment (BRE), the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), and the Royal 
Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) will provide high-level debates on 
topics such as "transforming low carbon construction into reality", as well as 
promoting building information modeling (BIM), BRE Environmental Assessment 
Methods (BREEAM), and so on. More than 30 leading industry experts from across 
the world will be invited to attend the debates, which will cover the most 
pertinent issues faced by the region and the industry. 
In addition, the Hotel Plus – Mockup Hotel Room Show will be another 
highlight at Expo Build China 2013. It is being co-organised by the China 
Tourist Hotels Association and the Alliance of China Hotel Owners. The Hotel 
Plus show is devoted to demonstrating the most cutting-edge decorative art and 
material technologies in hotel space design by setting up six demonstration 
suites in hotel guest rooms on-site, and the total exhibition area will be 
over 1,000 sq m. Leading domestic and international hotel management groups 
such as Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG), Greenland International Hotels 
Group, Wanda Hotels & Resorts, BTG-Jianguo Hotels & Resort Group, and New 
Century Hotels & Resort Group will all be involved with Hotel Plus, as well as 
Well Tech Studio from Italy.

organised by the China National Interior Decoration Association. A series of
