“MosBuild is a flagship professional exhibition. This year we have grown by 300 exhibitors and more than 24,000 visitors. But the most important thing is that the exhibition gives us a slice of the market, and its scale demonstrates the scale of the industry development. Many exhibitors note that the activity at MosBuild speaks of the prospects for the industry development in the current year. This is an important sign for the business community at the start of the new season,” said Yakov Syromyatnikov, the MosBuild Director.

“MosBuild remains the major meeting point for the design community. This is a real professional holiday. I wish all of us to meet at MosBuild next year as well,” said Diana Balashova, a well-known Russian designer and permanent participant of the exhibition.
