ONE OF Central Europe's largest construction fairs, and the oldest fair in Slovakia - Coneco - opened in Bratislava's Incheba exhibition centre on April 5, the TASR news wire reported.

Of Incheba's 125,000 square metres, exhibitors' stalls will cover 60,000 square metres.

More than 900 exhibitors from 12 European countries and China, will present new trends in construction and related industries.

Exhibitors will display modern and traditional building materials and technologies, tools, roofing, windows, doors, sanitation techniques, HVAC (heating, ventilating and air-conditioning ) systems and electrical installations.

The concurrent fairs of Racioenergia (rational energy use) and Cimatherm will be at Coneco for the 15th and ninth times respectively.

The four-day fair opens to the public on April 6.

Last year Coneco was visited by 203,000 people and at least the same number of visitors is expected this year.
