Roof China: Enormous demand for green roofs expected
China International Roof, Facade & Waterproofing Exhibition (Roof China 2017) in Guangzhou is the only trade show located in south China specialized for roofing industry since 2011. The trade fair takes places from May 12th-14th, 2017.
Companies which have experience with green and waterproof roofs should not miss the Roof China 2017. Having been long plagued by urban waterlogging, high PM 2.5 levels, deteriorating air quality, massive increase in carbon emission, etc, China now bets on sponge cities to address its environmental problems brought by urbanization. Many roofing professionals are thrilled by this governmental decision because the construction of sponge cities is predicted to spur enormous demand for green roofs.
Sponge City policy to accelerate the development of green roofs
It is believed that sponge city policy will give a strong boost to the green roof industries across China. In 2015, Mr. Lu Kehua, Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, revealed that 86.5 billion RMB would be invested into the construction of 16 pilot sponge cities by 2018. Mr. Zhu Dongqing, Chairman of China National Building Waterproof Association, observed that green roofing would be one of the key elements of sponge cities.
China’s green roof industry calling for oversea assistance
It can be foreseen that green roof systems will have enormous market space soon in China. If you have advanced green roofing technology or products, it is a good idea to showcase them in the 7th China (Guangzhou) International Roof, Facade & Waterproofing Exhibition, one of the most influential exhibitions of roofing in China.
