Ecobuild’s portfolio director James Blue said, “Sustainability in the built environment is an issue that has picked up pace over recent years and shows absolutely no sign of slowing its momentum. Ecobuild in the UK has seen phenomenal growth over recent years. We want Ecobuild China to be the annual meeting place for everyone involved in the creation and maintenance of sustainable built environments throughout China and I’m thrilled that the event has been so well received by such a passionate and diverse community.”
