The events will also feature the largest exhibition on integrated sustainable solutions with more than 900 exhibiting companies and 29 Group Pavilions across 30,000 square metres of covered exhibition space.

Several key co-located events including the 22nd United Nations Secretary-General's Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation (UNSGAB) Board Meeting and the 10th Asia Pacific Infrastructure Ministers Meeting (APIMM) were also held during the week.
