Construction, architecture, interior design – these topics still strongly resonate within society as was proved by the high visit rate of the 37th international construction fair Coneco being accompanied by the 26th fair of energy efficiency Racioenergy. 96 184 visitors passed the gates of Incheba Bratislava from 6th to 9th April; the area of 35 000m2 presented 465 exhibitors from 13 countries. Specialized exhibitions Wooden Houses, Passive Houses and Water took place together with the fairs.
The range of products of the exhibitors proved the general movement towards energy efficient housing and natural materials and contained not only building materials and components but also both classical and unconventional solutions for interiors including novelties constantly emerging at the market. Besides Slovak companies the fair also strongly represented exhibitors from Czech Republic and through national participations also companies from Hungary and Taiwan.
The Wooden Houses and Passive Houses exhibitions brought a wide presentation of companies dealing with implementation of this construction material and technologies. Visitors could get oriented in the field of wooden houses and energy self-sufficient buildings in the presence of skilled professionals. The Water exhibition introduced solutions aimed at sustainable development, flood control or support within the water management area. The stands of the exhibitors were appraised also by the Minister of the Environment László Solymos.
The rich accompanying programme dedicated to the current questions in construction field is also worth mentioning. Moreover, the Coneco and Racioenergy fairs witnessed awarding of the Coneco Golden Plaque and Racioenergy Golden Plaque for interesting and exceptional exhibits. The Golden Leonardo award went to a company with the most inventive and creative stand. We also got to know the names of the winners of the competitions for The Top Renovated Apartment Building of the 2015.
