Our goal is to keep this train going and make the 2022 edition of 100+ as successful" – stated Evgeny Kuyvashev.

It is planned to attract up to 300 exhibitors – developers, producers of materials, technology and equipment, informational technology. Just like last year, the landscaping cluster will be designed as a park but two times bigger.

A novelty of this year's 100+ will be something that is not directly related to construction, which is interior design forum and expo.

For the first time, 100+ will feature an Apartment Market, which will bring together developers, banks, realtors and other participants of the real estate market to create attractive conditions for purchasing housing.

One of them specializes in construction machinery. When it comes to the forum, 100+ tops the list. Moreover, the event was recently named Project of the Year among regions during EFEA Awards.  Winners were determined by a rating which was based on the number of mentions of forums, exhibitions and other events in Russian media.
