The 29th annual Coneco fair at Bratislava’s Incheba exhibition hall between April 1-5 was visited by 208,147 people, it was announced on April 7.

Having almost 900 exhibitors, mostly from the construction field, this year attested to the fact that this field has been experiencing a boom in recent years, SLOVAKIA was told by Incheba spokesperson Martina Štofaniková.

The fair was comprised of several events, including the energy use fair Racioenergia, heat energy fair Climatherm, and the two newest exhibitions that showcased investment and real-estate opportunities - Conecoinvest and Slovrealinvest.

All exhibitions were of European quality and standards and enjoyed great interest from visitors, Štofaníková said. She praised the fact that the fairs presented companies from 14 European countries plus Canada and the Philippines, who filled 60,000 square metres of exhibition space.

Coneco focused on what is on offer from companies and professional institutions in the construction, real estate, air-conditioning and energy fields. It drew attention to innovative technologies and solutions for producers, salesmen, investors, project planners and architects.

The fair took place under the auspices of the ministries of onstruction, economy and environment. TASR
