The fair will be open for all from 10.00 am to 7.00 pm.

METABUILD project is working to promote sustainable consumption and production in SMEs and suitable technology solutions are required for improving energy efficiency and resource (materials, water etc.) efficiency.

In this context, this “International Clean Technology Fair” is being held to bring technology suppliers and SMEs together.

The fair will host around 70 exhibitors from Bangladesh and India to interact with about 300 METABUILD partner companies as well as other industries. This will be an ideal platform for the technology suppliers to explore the potential market with a scope of establishing new partnerships. Industry owners will gain insights about different products which can be useful in their factories to reduce resource consumption and waste generation leading to corresponding cost savings.
