MosBuild 2008

The growth of Russia's building and interior exhibition shows no sign of relenting after another record breaking event in the first week of April last year. With eight months to go before the opening of MosBuild 2008, the event is set for unprecedented success, with more confirmed exhibitors and most of the exhibition space already allocated. MosBuild will take place on 1-4 April 2008 already for the 14th time, and it is held at the two major exhibition venues in Moscow at Expocentre and at Crocus Expo. MosBuild is firmly established as the premier annual B2B marketplace for suppliers and specialists from the building and interiors trade.

New halls available for further expansion could see MosBuild 2007 grow beyond 80,000 sqm, and Russia hosted its first trade event to exceed such scale. With additional halls available, individual sectors can expand even more at MosBuild 2008, and the event now comprises 25 separate, co-located exhibitions that cover a huge range of construction, building and interiors related products and services.

They are at Expocentr: "Buildex" with Building Automation Systems, Building Materials & Equipment, Build Electro, Hardware & Tools, Plumbing & HeatVent and "Cersanex" with Bathrooms, Ceramica and Technoceramica. Crocus will host "WindowBuild" combining Aluminium Technologies, Facades & Architecture, Gates & Automation, Glass Technologies and Window Technologies; "MosInteriors" with Decotex, Doors & Locks, Flooring, Interiors Finishes, Interiors Plus and Paints; "Country Living" with Country Home, Landscaping, Outdoor Lifestyle and Saunas & Pools; as well as "Stonex" combining Decostone and Stonebuild. Particularly the exhibition Facades & Architecture benefits from the expansion and specification of the single sectors, and it will cover a complete hall at Crocus only dedicated amongst others for facade technologies, construction, equipment and renovation.

MosBuild was first held in 1995 and its meteoric growth reflects the massive development of the building industry in Russia. In recent years, the construction industry has undergone significant positive changes and at present, it is one of the key sectors of economic development in Russia. New commercial and domestic properties and widespread refurbishment projects have resulted in a boom period for the building sector. Moreover, increased incomes have stimulated the demand for a wide variety of products and services from around the world.
