With the strong support of timber industry associations such as European Wood, the American Hardwood Export Council, French Timber and Canada Wood, a special themed zone featuring wooden products and timber buildings will be set up alongside the main event. A series of influential timber industry forums will accompany this event, which will not only host talks on optimising the commercial value of wooden products in China, but will also serve as an important platform for exchanges among architects, designers, developers, traders and manufacturers.

Based on its successful debut in 2012, the second edition of Ecobuild China, which is derived from the world's largest green building and new energy trade fair – Ecobuild in London – will be concurrently held at Expo Build China 2013 in the form of a United Kingdom pavilion and a "green building" pavilion. It will combine the latest innovative technologies and products in sustainable architectural design with a host of cutting-edge conferences, as well as team thought-leadership and practical application featuring suppliers of products and solutions for sustainable buildings and green technologies. A large academic delegation from the United Kingdom such as the British Research Establishment (BRE), the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) will provide high-level debates on topics such as "transforming low carbon construction into reality", as well as promoting building information modeling (BIM), BRE Environmental Assessment Methods (BREEAM), and so on.
