It is clear that in 2020 the organizers will continue to develop their concept of refining by dividing the participants into sectors – according to their businesses. The Forum enhances its thematic profile by opening a fourth hall for participants in the field of "Building Automation", "HVAC" and "Smart systems". The rest of the topics are "Interior finishing works", "Doors, windows and facades", "Exterior finishing works", "Construction equipment and machinery" ","Certical Planning and Landscaping" and "Industrial construction and equipment ".

Taking into account the specifics of the construction industry, six zones will be separated – "Exterior Finishing Works", "Construction Equipment and Machinery", "Rough Construction", "Interior Materials and Technologies", "Vertical Planning and Landscaping" and "Industrial Construction and Equipment ".

Architectural Building Week 2020 pays special attention to the energy-efficient, environmental-friendly and functional design and construction. This is why the sector dealing with construction insulation plays a key role. Exhibitors will focus on modern construction equipment and design, technologies and tools, finishing works, interior materials and technologies, modern vertical planning and landscaping and industrial construction. "The construction of the future and new technologies will be on the agenda," the organizers share. That is why a special attention will be paid to BIM technologies, software, building automation, smart buildings and construction systems.

The exhibition will also develop its accompanying program. The last edition was the arena of the discussion, organized by the Bulgarian Association for Construction Insulation (BACI) for construction and fire safety. Modern technologies were in the focus of a conference organized by the Bulgarian Chamber of Architects (BCA). HTB Conference was also held, i.e. the High technologies and the future of construction forum.
