JAKARTA, Apr 17, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - MEGA BUILD INDONESIA and KERAMIKA 2014 kicked off today at Jakarta Convention Center by Mr. MS. Hidayat, Minister of Industry Republic Indonesia and Mr. Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok), Jakarta Deputy Governor.

The event grew 75% in size, garnering strong support from industry associations as well as local and international companies. Organized by Reed Panorama Exhibitions (RPE), MEGA BUILD INDONESIA encompasses the 13th edition of Renovation & Construction Expo (RENEX) and the newly launched segments: Bathroom & Kitchen, Roof & Flooring and Doors & Windows. MEGABUILD INDONESIA 2014 is positioned to be the dedicated exhibition for Architecture, Interior Design and Building industry in Indonesia and the region.

According to an industry report, the Indonesian construction industry recorded healthy growth from 2009 to 2013, expanding by an average annual rate of 7% in real terms. Industry growth is expected to remain strong over the forecast period (2014-2018), as a result of the government's focus on infrastructure and industrial construction, and the implementation of the multiyear Master Plan for the Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia's Economic Development (MP3EI).

The launch of MEGA BUILD INDONESIA is timely. The event is positioned as the most comprehensive event for architects, interior designers, developers and suppliers to share their experiences and ideas, present new products/technologies and network with key stakeholders both locally and internationally. MEGA BUILD INDONESIA 2014 is supported by Indonesian Institute of Architects (IAI) and Indonesia Society of Interior Designers (HDII).

Held alongside MEGA BUILD INDONESIA 2014, is the third edition of KERAMIKA, the only dedicated exhibition in ASEAN that showcases the entire ceramic supply chain, from raw materials, equipment and machineries, supporting services and finished products. KERAMIKA is co-organised by the Indonesia Ceramic Industry Association (ASAKI) and RPE.

ASAKI predicts that the growth in the industry will hit 10%, generating an estimated sale of Rp. 34 trillion. This signifies the growth potential of the Indonesia ceramic industry and the importance of KERAMIKA to promote trade and innovation in the industry.

"The strong domestic demand, particularly from the growing property and construction sectors, is creating tremendous business opportunities for the local ceramic industry. The success of KERAMIKA last year affirmed the industry's needs, not only on a local level but also on a regional and international level. By bringing together local companies on a single platform like KERAMIKA, to exchange ideas, network and establish business opportunities, we hope to build Indonesia as the premier market in ASEAN for quality ceramic products," said Mr Elisa Sinaga, Chairman of ASAKI.

Together, MEGABUILD INDONESIA and KERAMIKA 2014 will offer a complete and comprehensive platform that spans some 25,000sqm showcasing 315 participating companies from Indonesia and 11 countries.

"We are proud to announce that the event has grown not only in size but in terms of its regional mix. 26% of the participating companies are foreign companies, including 5 national pavilions from China, Korea, Italy, Singapore and Taiwan. We are confident that with the strong support of our partners, the growing Indonesian economy, plus our commitment to deliver a quality event for the industry, MEGA BUILD INDONESIA and KERAMIKA 2014 will continue to grow. It will become a key platform for international suppliers to penetrate the Indonesian market, driving further growth for the country," said Ms Michelle Lim, President Director of RPE.

MEGABUILD INDONESIA 2014 is held in conjunction with IAI-Jakarta Design Week 2.1 which will provide various educational programs such as workshops and talk shows aimed to educate the public about the importance of architecture in Jakarta as the identity of Indonesia's capital city. Themed "The Future of Architecture and Interior Design", the latest design trends, solutions and technologies in the building and construction sector will be shared and discussed.

The Indonesia Society of Interior Designers (HDII) will be presenting PASAR DESAIN a showcase of 100 well-known interior designers and their designs, with the aim to create more awareness in adopting Indonesian culture and art in landscape architecture and design in Jakarta as a metropolitan city.

Over the next 4 days, 25,000 trade visitors and public are expected to attend MEGA BUILD INDONESIA 2014 and KERAMIKA 2014.
