Themed “Creating Green Wealth”, the 5th International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference Malaysia (IGEM2014) aims to help push the rapid adoption of green technology which is the emerging driver to deliver a double impact of sustainable economic growth as well as to address the environmental and energy security issues.
Having firmly established its foothold as the region’s largest green exhibition, IGEM2014 will continue its pursuit to gather like-minded industry players and professionals to explore and seize the opportunities from the exciting and emerging green market in the country and the region. Along with ASEAN / International Pavilions, it provides an essential platform to launch, feature and showcase innovative green technologies, eco-products and services. It is indeed a must-attend event for green product buyers and sellers to interact, transact and forge new partnerships and cross border collaboration.
This four-day event is expected to draw more than 600 companies / organizations from around the world and over 60,000 visitors. The time to act is NOW -- Don’t miss out on the green opportunities and register your participation.
We're here at IGEM to look for clients, and this is our first year attending as visitors as we only found out about it recently. I think it's fantastic so far, and we want to take part as an exhibitor next year.
We are a building consultancy firm that focuses on supplying green technology products to residential and commercial properties. This is the second time we visit IGEM, as we had a good experience last year. We are constantly looking for well-designed products that can be brought into the Middle East, and the government recognises that the long-term impact of going green will give us a better future. We are certainly looking forward to visiting IGEM again.
It's my first time in Malaysia and I appreciate the effort by the Malaysian government in organising this exhibition to encourage clean technologies, environment protection and introducing renewable technology. I've had very efficient meetings so farand I'm looking forward to meeting more in the next few days.
We have participated in previous IGEMs and the response has been simply amazing. I would say that in the previous years, our response rate is about 50%. This means that for every 10 enquiries made during the exhibition, five ended in sales. We have already in fact made some sales through this year's exhibition already.
IGEM is getting better and better, and there is far more international exposure this year. We find that we are getting more opportunities this year, especially in our neighbouring countries. We have been approached by Indonesia, Thailand and Brunei to present our technology at their conferences.
We are here at IGEM to look for other products and services to enrich our existing product range. I think IGEM is well-organised and has provided us the opportunity to meet potential partners which I think will convert into business opportunities. I will definitely be coming back next year.
I have participated in smaller exhibitions in Malaysia three years ago and I find that IGEM is comparatively larger and the quality of customers is much better. Within the first two days of the exhibition, we have met several high-potential local customers and the discussions with them have been very encouraging so far. We believe that this will lead to sales, and we will join next year's IGEM.
We are a project developer and one of the things we do is to build biomass or waste energy plants. So I’m here to look at how I can package a biomass plant and outfit it with different equipment. This is like a shopping mall for renewable energy. I’ve only been here half an hour and I think it’s quite good!”
