Step into the World of Possibilities and Welcome to ARCHIDEX!

ARCHIDEX has successfully united the industry for the architecture, interior design, and building professionals. More than that, the exhibition has evolved to become a platform of choice for stakeholders not just in Malaysia but across Asia. I am proud to see how much value ARCHIDEX has contributed towards the economy and the industry. The concurrently held DATUM:KL Conference is one of the biggest conferences in the region making ARCHIDEX and DATUM a collaborative triumph that makes up the Kuala Lumpur Architecture Festival (KLAF). Together with the PAM 100 Years Celebration this year, it marks Kuala Lumpur as the preferred MICE centre with global standards.

YB Tuan Nga Kor Ming

Minister of Local Government Development, Malaysia

I am excited to welcome every one of you to a momentous celebration for our beloved architecture, interior design, and building industry. This year is very special for us as we rejoice in gathering together once again and to witness the PAM 100 milestone. The DATUM:KL theme of ‘WE AS 1’ says it all as we continue to grow, evolve, and move confidently into the future together as a community. Sustainability, future architecture, and wellbeing of the community we serve are themes that have always been a cornerstone of architectural practice, and this is emphasised at ARCHIDEX this year. As such, we can expect to see new technologies, innovative designs, and novel ways of building during the four days of ARCHIDEX and DATUM:KL.

As we gather at ARCHIDEX and DATUM, let us be reminded and appreciate the immense and far-reaching power of architecture and architects to shape the community and environment around us. Through our collective passion, dedication, and vision, we transform lives, uplift communities, and leave a lasting legacy for generations to come. Let us together unleash the brilliance within our architectural fraternity and create a future where design knows no bounds. Enjoy the fellowship and camaraderie. Lets work together for better times and I wish everyone the very best and success at ARCHIDEX and DATUM.

I am honoured to extend a warm welcome to every exhibitor, sponsor, partner, visitor and delegate as we gather for a great time at our annual industry event to connect, collaborate, and celebrate. This year’s ARCHIDEX would be the largest ever. We will be expecting 36,000 visitors from close to 90 countries and will host over 600 local and international exhibitors from 15 countries and regions including Malaysia taking up 1,400 exhibition stands across all 10 exhibition halls of the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. ARCHIDEX has expanded and evolved today into a dynamic platform uniting the industry, many international collaborations and partnerships have resulted. I wish to invite participants to actively engage in every session possible and take full advantage of connecting with your peers and other community members during the next four days.
