It is the most important event on the Sri Lankan construction calendar, dedicated exclusively to developing Sri Lanka’s fast-growing construction industry. 

These popular twin trade shows with more than 100 international companies representing 10 countries, along with the international conference ‘Future Build’, is to be held from 7-9 September at the BMICH, Colombo.

The Buildcon Expo will bring together construction machinery and building material products, which will form Sri Lanka Buildcon International Expo 2018, Sri Lanka’s leading trade show for the construction industry.

The twin trade shows consist of three days brimming with the latest products, innovations and developments across the building sector, both within the country and regionally. The show covers a wide range of products from concrete block making machines, architectural hardware, aluminium windows and fabricating machinery, laminates, wood coating, wood working machinery to structural uses of concrete and metal frames, electrical engineering, pre-fabricated materials, mechanical and electrical engineering for builders, architects, designers and investors. 

The Future Build conference will take place at the Buildcon Expo theatre at various times throughout the event with speakers from the SAARC nations. It will also include provocative discussions on how best to prepare for futuristic developments within the construction industry. 

It is an excellent opportunity for exhibitors and visitors at the event to source new products and suppliers, network with suppliers and other visitors, and to talk to product experts and exhibitors’ technical staff.
