The 6th International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition and Conference Malaysia (IGEM 2015) has received a strong response with 11 Japanese companies confirming 19 booths, demonstrating confidence in the growth opportunities that the region’s largest green technology business and innovation platform offers to its exhibitors.
Aptly themed “Powering the Green Economy”, IGEM 2015, organised by the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA), co-organised by Malaysian Green Technology Corporation (GreenTech Malaysia) and backed by strategic partners, Malaysian Investment Development Authority and Malaysian Exhibition Services, targets 50,000 visitors and 400 exhibitors from over 20 countries.
TMG’s Director for Project, International Affairs Division at the Office of the Governor for Policy Planning, Rie Imazeki, said “The Tokyo Metropolitan Government recognises that IGEM is one of the largest environmental trade shows in Southeast Asia. As such, we believe IGEM 2015 provides an ideal platform for SMEs from Tokyo to showcase and exchange new ideas and technologies in an effort to explore business opportunities and encourage innovation.”
“This year, the Tokyo Pavilion will house prominent players in green technology, including cutting edge SMEs and educational research institutions from Tokyo. We urge you to join us at IGEM 2015 as we are confident that you will be impressed and inspired by the green technology innovations on display,” she added.
In addition to the Japanese delegation, other confirmed exhibitors include industry leaders such as ABB Holdings, Recycle Energy Co. Ltd / CFP Corporation (Singapore) and Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association (TEEMA) as well as locally based companies such as First Solar Malaysia, Malaysia Solar Resources, Cohesive Mobility Solution (COMOS), PROTON, TOSHIBA TEC Malaysia and Weimar Enterprise.
Overall, the exhibition has been strategically compartmentalised into the five key green technology sectors namely Energy, Transport, Building, Waste and Water, rendering the premises conceptually well-structured and easy to navigate, both for participants and visitors.
Speaking about the positive response from the exhibitors, Tan Sri Peter Chin Fah Kui, Chairman of GreenTech Malaysia said, “I am very pleased with the uptake by the Japanese companies and their continuing support for IGEM. To date, some 300 booths have been taken up by 72 exhibitors, out of which 126 booths in the form of pavilions are occupied by leading green technology companies from Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Taiwan ROC, South Korea and Singapore.”
“I am confident that in the weeks ahead, we will continue to see other exhibitors signing up to make the most of the cross-country promotion and ready access to international audience that IGEM 2015 offers to its exhibitors,” he added.
Throughout IGEM, participants will be able to network with industry leaders, policy makers and Government officials at the various concurrent events. These include the ever-popular MATRADE International Business Matching, MIDA Business Consultation and One-to-One BizMatch Programme, among others.
