Norway is the first partner country at the Bautec Trade Fair 2020

In February 2020, Norway has been honoured to be the first partner country ever at the Bautec trade fair in Berlin, Germany. As a Norwegian company focused on innovation and digitization of construction, Cobuilder have already secured a place in the Norwegian pavilion at the trade fair. We look forward to connecting with relevant industry players and customers in Germany and Europe.

Norway’s status as a partner country at Bautec 2020 is a collaboration project between the Norwegian Embassy in Berlin, Innovation Norway and the Norwegian-German Chamber of Commerce. These partners have come together to showcase the best and most innovative of what Norway has to offer in the construction industry.

‘This is a unique opportunity for Norwegian construction companies to be represented at important international trade fairs for the construction industry. The fair’s focus on digitalization and energy efficiency makes Bautec particularly relevant for Norwegian construction actors and the development we currently see in the Norwegian construction industry’ says Michael Kern, Managing Director of the Norwegian-German Chamber of Commerce. He adds that the partners are very pleased to have secured the participation of two innovative Norwegian construction companies such as Kebony and Cobuilder on the team.

Build better, cheaper and greener

‘Bautec is a well-established and recognized trade fair for the entire European construction industry, not just for Germany. For Cobuilder, who is increasingly working with the larger European players, it is clear that this is an exciting arena to show what we can and build further networks, says Chief Marketing Officer, Solfrid Harbu.

Cobuilder offers in-house standardized IT solutions for collaboration and distribution of product data to all stages of the value chain in the construction industry. Harbu believes that Norway’s status as a partner country will help in the visibility of smaller Norwegian players and make it easier to get “on board” with relevant industry players.

‘As a supplier of IT solutions developed specifically for the AECO industry, we look forward to presenting our innovation and showing how we can help the big players build better, cheaper and greener.’ – adds Solfrid Harbu.
