KUALA LUMPUR: The Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA) is targeting to generate RM1.6 billion in business leads through its annual and eighth edition of the International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference Malaysia (IGEM 2017).
"As urban populations continue to rise, it is becoming increasingly important to create sustainable living spaces through ecological innovations and practices,” said KeTTHA’s acting deputy minister, Datuk Seri SK Devamany in a statement.
“This year’s theme of Powering Green Cities not only reflects this necessity, but also ties in seamlessly with Malaysia’s TN50 aspiration of creating a greener future whereby cities are powered by renewable energy, people commute via electric and energy efficient vehicles as well as live and work in green buildings.”
“In fact, we expect to attract 25,000 trade visitors from over 20 countries this year, and is aiming to generate RM1.6 billion in business leads.”
This year’s event also is set to highlight key areas of green technology critical to the development of sustainable cities through dedicated zones that cover green energy, green transport, green buildings and green industry, with major players presenting their latest innovations for trade visitors to explore the promising opportunities in green technology.
It will also include international pavilions from China, Japan, Korea as well as regional representation from Taiwan and European Union countries via the EU-Malaysia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (EUMCCI).
Organised by KeTTHA and co-organised by Malaysian Green Technology Corporation (GreenTech Malaysia), the region’s go-to green technology platform will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from 11th to 13th October and will feature 320 exhibitor booths.
Since its inception in 2010, IGEM has established a successful track record of generating business leads exceeding RM10 billion, attracting over 2,000 exhibitors and 380,000 visitors from more than 50 countries.
