BAU Congress China is now three days long


The third edition of BAU Congress China takes place from July 4–6, 2016. Due to the positive response, for the first time ever BAU Congress China will be three days long. This year’s congress will take place in the exhibition halls of the China National Convention Center (CNCC) in Beijing.

For the first time ever, the event will relocate to the exhibition halls of the CNCC and the congress will be integrated into the fair, which has also increased in size. The objective is to strengthen networking between the congress and the adjoining exhibition. As in the past, the main themes—i.e. urban strategies, project development and implementation, and smart building technology—will be adapted to ensure that they reflect the characteristics of the Chinese market.

The concept of developing system solutions to the problems facing Chinese cities is one that BAU Congress China has been pursuing since it was first held in 2014. As in the past, main themes were selected for 2016 that—together with the conference program and the adjoining exhibition— demonstrate how to take the specific characteristics of the Chinese market into account during planning and construction. The objective of the event is to focus even more on distinct projects and present potential solutions based on actual properties. Thanks to the expertise of the renowned architecture magazine “Bauwelt,” some very prominent lecturers and speakers have agreed to participate this year. The following have already accepted:
