MBAM is extremely pleased to host the 44th IFAWPCA Convention 2018. We welcome you back to Kuala Lumpur since our last two hostings in the years 1983 and 1998. Kuala Lumpur is an ever-evolving metropolitan as such those returning will notice how much the city has grown, both horizontally and vertically, yet retaining its ASEAN charm and greenery.
The 44th IFAWPCA Convention is themed “Strategic Alliance with Innovation & Human Capital”. It is aptly chosen to reflect the current need to constantly be in the know of industry developments that is both ever changing and complex as well as the importance of human capital in construction. Any growth or change in the construction landscape has spillover effects which besides boosting real estate and property values, helps improve the quality of lives in general.
It is my hope that the Convention and the Conference that we have planned will be a great platform to strengthen regional cooperation amongst IFAWPCA members as well as create drivers for better construction growth in the region.
On our end, we are working towards ensuring that your participation in the convention will be most fruitful, comfortable and enjoyable. You will experience the Malaysian hospitality at its best while in Malaysia and we are certain your trip will be a memorable one.
We welcome you to Malaysia, a melting pot of culture, history, modernity and nature. Where the spirit of Asia lives and thrives.

IFAWPCA members wait 18 months for every IFAWPCA convention. Member countries represented by their respective members come with great expectations to network with peers and build lasting acquaintances.
IFAWPCA Convention has always been a great platform where great minds congregate to exchange views and experiences about construction methodology and technologies.
With the modernisation and growth of the industry that supplies these developments, the need to link regionally, exchange experiences, knowledge and technology becomes eminent. The IFAWPCA Convention provides the perfect platform for member countries to address all these issues in a warm and welcoming environment made up of new and long-time peers.
The 44th IFAWPCA Convention hosted by Master Builders Association Malaysia (MBAM), brings the theme Strategic Alliance with Innovation & Human Capital as its core message; three components essential for the continued growth of the Construction Industry. With technology growing rapidly while the pool of experienced construction personnel shrinks, the need for a strategic alliance among member countries is even more vital now. The focus on human capital development is paramount; as such it will be one of the main subjects deliberated in the conference with prominent industry leaders.
The other highlight of the Convention include the Construction Industry Exhibition which will feature Malaysian building expertise and capabilities, services, machineries and construction materials, all under one roof. To make the trip a memorable one for delegates and their family, we have listed some of Malaysia’s iconic landmark projects for sightseeing.
This IFAWPCA Convention will bring the developing and developed member countries together to mutually benefit each other and create opportunities to renew old relationships and establish new ones. We look forward to hosting you in 2018!
