Highlights of the Opening Ceremony.

There were some highlights shared during the opening ceremony speech:

  • Kuala Lumpur just hosted the 48th Asean Foreign Ministers Meeting and the 16th Asean Plus Three Senior Officials Meeting.
  • ARCHIDEX is the largest exhibition and networking event in Malaysia for architects, interior designers and building industry professionals.
  • This event provides the platform for players from the building industry to source and decide the latest technologies and products by the respective industry’s associates. This is also an exceptional platform for new ideas acquisition.
  • The theme ‘Place’ is the design of the conference.  People nowadays are drawn to factors such as sustainability, sensitivity and development at home, workplace and the modern communities that they can call ‘home’. It is stated that this is a challenge to architects, urban planners, interior designers and academicians.
  • Regarding the Green Building Forum which is an extension of Pertubuhan Akitek Malaysia (PAM), both Qlassic and IBS have been incorporated into the Green Building Index (GBI) rating tools.
