INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Starting in 2018, Reed Panorama Exhibitions (RPE) will bring back hundreds of business actors in the field of building materials, architecture, interior design and ceramics in the annual exhibition Megabuild Indonesia 2018.

The exhibition will be held at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) from 15-18 March 2017, will be held simultaneously with KERAMIKA 2018 and Security, Safety & Facility Management Expo Indonesia which is a one-stop exhibition that will answer all the needs of building materials and elements supporters.

The need for building materials and its supporting elements has increased in line with the growth of the property sector in Indonesia. Based on the Residential Property Price Survey (SPHRR) published by Bank Indonesia, in Q4 / 2017, home sales grew by 3.05% (qtq).

Not only that, in line with the trend of Internet of Things (IOT), the concept of smart home such as the use of CCTV, alarm detector, gas sensor and security system using finger print (finger scan) becomes an important factor.

This year's Megabuild 2018 focuses on safe and smart buildings, focusing on functional design structures that have high aesthetic value, including selection of raw materials and technological features as a value added of the building or the environment itself, "said Steven Chwee General Manager Reed Panorama Exhibitions (RPE) in Jakarta, Wednesday (7/3/2018).

Smart home growth in Indonesia is driven by the property industry that offers automation as an advantage even more becoming a consumer demand. This technology is expected to be a solution for modern society that requires more privacy and comfort.

The benefits of new technologies are also felt by construction service providers and architectural consultants, where they are required to provide safe, quality, yet environmentally friendly building designs.

Construction of the project is even easier and shorter thanks to innovations such as in the field of construction of the use of pre-cast concrete (pre-cast) and wiring is very efficient.

"We believe that Megabuild 2018 will be able to bring new nuances and solutions for all stakeholders from the field of architecture, interior design and construction as well as technology device providers. This exhibition is a good place to introduce products, provide solutions and establish cooperation between all business actors," says Steven.
