This year’s Caspian Construction Week 2018 will kick off on the 23rd of October at Baku Expo Center. The number of its participants makes it the largest event on the non-oil sector in the region. The Caspian Construction Week includes three exhibitions – the 24th Azerbaijan International Construction Exhibition Azerbaijan, the Caspian International Furniture, Interiors and Design Exhibition, the 11th International Exhibition for Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning, Water Supply, Sanitary and Swimming Pool Aquatherm Baku and the 11th Caspian International Protection, Security and Rescue Exhibition Securika Caspian which will occupy two halls at Baku Expo Center. One of the most popular and well-attended events, BakuBuild Azerbaijan has been a unique platform for many years; it brings together professionals of the industry and displays all the latest innovations. This year, 301 companies from 22 countries take part in the Caspian Construction Week.
BakuBuild Azerbaijan is the most important trade event in the region for building and architecture, and design and renovations. Every year, professionals from a range of different countries attend the exhibition to find business partners.
Over the years, the exhibition has gained recognition as an effective tool for promoting products and services on the market. Participating companies are from Azerbaijan, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Russia, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine, USA, and other countries. This year 4 international groups, who have taken part in the exhibition more than once previously, will again join in this major construction event. A long-time regular participant at BakuBuild Azerbaijan is the German National Stand, whose participation is organised thanks to the close cooperation between the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the German Trade Fair Industry Association, AUMA. Another participant is the Polish National Stand; it is onboard through organisational support of the Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH). For some years now, the company “Dubai Export” has been bringing together leading companies from the UAE. Participation of Italy’s joint stand is organised by Iteca Caspian’s partner in Italy, Invernizzi Group. Among this year’s debutants are two joint regional stands from Russia; thus, for the first time, companies from Udmurtia, under the leadership of the Export Development Corporation of Udmurtia, and companies from Tyumen, headed by the Export Support Centre of the Tyumen Region, will be taking part in the exhibition.
It is a pleasure to note that local companies make up about 40 per cent of the total number of participants; active involvement of Azerbaijani exhibitors is a significant contribution to the success of the BakuBuild Azerbaijan exhibition. Local companies rely on the exhibition to showcase proudly their “Made in Azerbaijan” products to the international audience. Participation in the exhibition provides ample opportunity to strengthen existing business ties and establish new ones. The registration sponsor of BakuBuild Azerbaijan 2018 is its regular participant, NB Group (the Corella brand), and the media partner of the exhibition is the magazine “House and Interior” (“Dom i Interyer”).
From year to year, the event attracts new exhibitors desirous of exploring the local market and becoming part of it through this proven short-cut, as Caspian Construction Week affords a venue bringing the entire industry together in one place. This year, BakuBuild Azerbaijan welcomes 40% foreign and local newcomers.

INNOVATIONS AT THE EXHIBITIONS
Our modern world dictates new rules for development, and thus, innovations in the industry are an integral part of it. International exhibitions are the ideal platform for demonstrating innovations from exhibitors who are already proactively benefiting from this opportunity. Aquatherm Baku and BakuBuild Azerbaijan exhibitions innovations catalogue is published annually and contains information about the diverse range of know-how to be presented at the exhibitions; we encourage you to read or download this catalogue from the exhibition’s official website. Thanks to the "new product / new service" emblem it will be easier to find those companies that showcase new products and services.
Caspian Construction Week is a unique opportunity for enterprises and organisations involved in the field of construction, repair and engineering support, where they can establish new business contacts and partnerships, share experiences and the latest information with other experts, and attract many new clients. As part of the exhibition, a number of specialized workshops, professional meetings and discussions are planned in addition to presentations of new technologies and construction skills. On the first day of the exhibition (October 23), a media briefing "Polish construction industry" (Baku Expo Center, Hall 1, stand № B1062) will be held at 1 p.m. with organisational support from the Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH). The programme will continue with the Unique Project competition, a joint event arranged by the Union of Architects of Azerbaijan and Iteca Caspian; a winning project will be selected and announced from the most original building solutions proposed by young architects. On the same day, a ceremony will take place to announce the winner of the country-wide competition of architectural works, which was previously held under the leadership of the Union of Architects of Azerbaijan.

The second day of the exhibition will be an equally busy day starting with B2B meetings, which, thanks to the organisers, have become a regular part of the event. These meetings have proven to be an additional effective business platform for professional dialogue between Azerbaijani specialists, dealers, distributors and their foreign colleagues. This year, over 60 companies announced their participation in these business meetings, to be held on October 24 with BakuBuild Azerbaijan participants, and on October 25 with Aquatherm Baku participants, at Workshop Room 22, Baku Expo Center.
In an effort to ensure that participants realise maximum benefit from their involvement in the exhibitions, the organisers, well before the opening of the event, invited participants to a business breakfast where a formula for successful participation was presented, followed by information about the exhibition’s advertising campaign, and also covering more basic issues such as how to set up an effective stand. The business breakfast was led by a professional coach Fidan Azimli, who was invited by the organisers. During the business breakfast, the main issues with regard to the organisation of stands were touched upon, and a formula for successful participation at the exhibitions was presented. More than 30 representatives of local companies took part in the business breakfast, and organisers are confident that the helpful tips laid out will be successfully applied during their participation at the exhibitions.
Not only participation, but also a visit to the specialised exhibition in the region has fundamental importance to all companies, whose business is related to the construction industry. This year for the first time there will be organised the tour with businessmen from Nakhchivan by Iteca Caspian and Caspian Energy, the information partner of exhibition. Also the organisers will hold the tour with businessmen from Georgia.
NEW ADDITIONAL EVENTS FROM ORGANISERS
