With just eight days remaining until the annual International Building Expo 2023, preparations are in full swing. The expo, centered around the theme “Building For All: One Guyana, Many Opportunities,” is scheduled to take place from August 24-27 at the National Stadium in Providence, East Bank Demerara.
A recent announcement from the Ministry of Housing highlighted that the latest model of young professional houses will take the spotlight, along with other homes designed for citizens under the national housing programme.
Minister within the Ministry of Housing, Susan Rodrigues, and her team conducted a site visit to the venue where she revealed that approximately 2,000 families will secure house lots through the ‘Dream Realised’ Housing Drive, a highly anticipated initiative that has become synonymous with the expo. This drive aims to provide individuals from targeted areas with long-awaited house lots.
Rodrigues had previously revealed that this particular exercise will span multiple days during the expo, serving as a platform for individuals to address pending applications and concerns.
During the visit, Minister Rodrigues noted that a multitude of private and public sector organizations will present their best products and services, accompanied by family-friendly attractions. Notably, at the Expo’s launch event held at the Amazonia Mall in July, Rodrigues underscored the expo’s role as a “launching pad” for new businesses, serving as a valuable platform for numerous aspiring enterprises to make their debut.
She also revealed that several zones, including the executive avenue, outdoor booths, children’s corner, and small business avenue, are already sold out. However, limited spaces remain available in the main auditorium, the One Guyana Development, and Equipment Zones.
The Expo still extends opportunities for businesses eager to participate, encouraging them to apply for packages by contacting 635-1103/635-1104 or visiting buildingexpo.gy/packages/.
