Lyubov Smirnova, representative of the national exhibition center BelExpo
BelExpo is the largest exhibition organisation in the Republic of Belarus. Our state develops relations with Azerbaijan and therefore we decided to organise a common booth at BakuBuild.
A delegation of the Ministry of Architecture and Construction was brought to the exhibition for the first time in order to demonstrate the potential of the Belarusian construction industry, both in terms of design and implementation of construction projects, and for the presentation of finishing materials.
Seven companies are represented at the booth in total. Six of them form part of the ministry structure. One company presents materials for thermal insulation. Some companies decided to show samples of their products at the booth: these are ceramic tiles, sanitary ware, facade tiles, porcelain tiles. Specialists from engineering companies are present and consult the guests.
I believe that construction exhibitions will always be a success, because exhibition events have a long history, and nothing can replace the effectiveness of this marketing tool. The BakuBuild exhibition is an outstanding international event. Here you can find partners from around the world. We are negotiating, have reached some agreements and contracts are expected. We hope that the exhibition will grow and develop, and we will return to Baku next year with a larger exposition.
