The built environment sector is one of the key drivers of the Indian economy, contributing to 17.5% of the GDP, employing 50 million people, and with over US$ 1.5 trillion investment in building and infrastructure in the period 2012-2017. With the population expected to increase to 1.45 billion by 2020, of which 500 million would be in urban areas, the housing, infrastructure and real estate requirements to satisfy this growth, would keep the built environment sector growing at a blistering pace. CAPEx will be the definitive one-stop shop for technologies, processes, systems, materials, supplies, products and equipments for the architectural and engineering design, planning, construction engineering, safety and quality, MEPF and operation and maintenance of sustainable built environment.
CAPEx is co-located with Municipalika, India’s only event on City Infrastructure and Sustainable Urban Development, with a successful track record of 13 years, and an assured attendance of policy makers, city managers, urban development authorities, urban parastatals, urban local bodies, housing agencies, real estate developers and professionals. Municipalika has been instrumental in highlighting pertinent issues revolving around challenges and opportunities, sharing best and leading practices, evolving technological and managerial solutions, and providing inputs for policy interventions. This will provide exhibitors and visitors access to a wide networking and business ecosystem starting from the building level, and expanding into neighborhood, township and city-level.
