WORLD OF WALAS PARTNERS WITH WESTERN CANADA’S LARGEST CONSTRUCTION, DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE CONFERENCE.
World of Walas, the multinational sustainable urban development company with offices in Canada, Germany and The Netherlands will sponsor the European Innovation Pavilion at Buildex 2018 in Vancouver.
“We’ve been participating in Buildex for many years now under the auspices of our Canadian business unit Dudoc Vancouver,” says World of Walas CEO Gerben van Straaten. “As our pavilion and influence grew each year we were asked by the wonderful team at Buildex if we could help them broaden the reach and message of sustainable building practices from an international perspective and we’re very excited about these next steps. Besides a grand pavilion which is seven times as big as last year, we will now have our own stage where we and our Dutch and European partners can do presentations, share knowledge and network. We can also do part of the programing and place The Netherlands and our various innovative partners in a unique position to have access to the lucrative North American market”
The Buildex conference in Vancouver will be held on the 14th and 15th of February 2018. There will be over 600 exhibitors and around 80 seminars. Buildex welcomes over 14,000 decision makers and visitors each year.
