The theme for the ACT Forum'19 will be REACT, which has been chosen to highlight how architects and designers have to respond and adapt to today's fast paced work environment. The theme will be explored during the event in four distinct sections: The Keynote, The Practice, The Innovation and The ACT Services.

In total over 30 topics will be discussed during the four-day event during talks, architectural seminars and academic conferences.

"ACT Forum'19 offers the industry a comprehensive experience and a chance to explore market opportunities, as well as trends in business through innovation and creativity of building and design, " said its organisers.

"ACT Forum'19 is expected to draw more than 500 exhibitors from around 30 countries across the world," said Supaman Munka, the exposition organiser. "Over 50 leading companies have already confirmed their participation in our event."

The forum will run for the first time from the 14-17 November 2019. More information is available on the ACT Forum'19 website.
