The second biggest construction fair in Slovakia, PRO ARCH, will take place at Banská Bystrica’s Expo Centre from April 21 to 24, 2009.

As in previous years, other specialised exhibitions will accompany PRO ARCH such as:
PRO EKO - 5th exhibition about recycling and waste management
PRO ENERGO – 5th exhibition about renewable resources and energy savings
PRO REGION - 8th exhibition concerning regional development
UTILITY VEHICLES – 5th exhibition about commercial and municipal vehicles

Over 230 Slovak and foreign exhibitors will present a comprehensive offer of construction products and services, as well as current information about the possibilities of accessing EU funds. The exhibition comes at a time of inexpensive construction materials and services, so this is the best time to prepare an apartment or house reconstruction or other construction investment.

Visitors will also find answers to questions such as “How to decrease costs using alternative energy sources” and “How to act ecologically by separating your waste.” There will be consulting services offered in almost 20 consulting centres.
