There will also be room for companies with innovative projects such as Bioo, which has developed an initiative to produce electricity through plant photosynthesis.
The director of Tomorrow.Building World Congress, Ione Ruete, pointed out that “we have managed to bring together major companies of international relevance to promote business opportunities and open doors to new markets, as well as to publicise new technological advances for more efficient, circular and sustainable industrialised and modular construction”. She added that “in this sense, the profile of the visitors is one of high decision-making and purchasing power in the real estate segment and infrastructure construction companies from all over the world”.
