Foreword With a track record of 37 years, Build4Asia has gone from strength to strength to become the leading building, electrical engineering and security trade show in Hong Kong. This year marks a major task for us – as the 1st B2B exhibition to restart in Hong Kong amid Covid-19, we see the need to forge strong ties with the industry to deliver a show that goes above and beyond excellence. To achieve this goal, we have gone to great lengths to implement new initiatives including the 1st Build4Asia Awards, which has proved to be a resounding success. We are thrilled to see such an overwhelming response, which signifies the passion and solidarity of the entire building and construction industry. We believe the Awards will continue to carry these precious values and bring together more brilliant minds and works in future editions. We are blessed to receive heartfelt trust and continuous support from our event partner PRC Magazine and all the distinguished judges, who have reached out and given their best endeavours to contribute in the event. Now we see ourselves not just a show organiser but a family member of the industry. I believe with our collective efforts, the show, and the industry, can both scale greater heights.

Daniel Cheung General Manager Informa Markets – Organiser of Build4Asia


Foreword As Hong Kong’s construction sector has grown over the last four decades, Build4Asia, one of the city’s longest running trade fairs, has been there in alliance every step of the way. PRC Magazine’s relationship with this vital building industry exhibition began back in 2008 and has flourished ever since. Choosing to establish the inaugural Build4Asia Awards in a pandemic year was a bold move given the highest levels of uncertainty the community has faced in living memory. But the support received from all corners of our industry validates this decision and confirms the importance of Build4Asia as one of construction’s premier events. As publisher and co-organiser of these newly establish Awards I would like to express my sincere appreciation to all those companies and corporations that have entered the competition this year. To our distinguished judges who offered their time to review and comment on the vast array of entries, I say, thank you. On behalf of my team I must also express our gratitude to the organiser of Build4Asia, Informa Markets. Your support over recent years and over the last six months during planning and production has been essential to the successful staging of Build4Asia Awards 2020. We look forward to building upon this success at the next event in 2022.
