In 2016, an estimated 54.5% of the world’s population lived in urban areas, with the United Nations predicting this number to increase to 60% by 2030. 
With an estimated two in every three people expected to live in cities in the near future, this year’s IGEM, is pertinently themed “Powering Green Cities”, focussing on creating living areas that are ecologically-sound and future-ready. 
Organised by the Malaysian Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA), the International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference Malaysia (IGEM) has established itself as South East Asia’s largest trade event for green technologies and eco solutions. This event is the ideal platform for solution providers and green energy businesses to tap into the fast expanding ASEAN market by showcasing the latest innovations to policy makers, government organisations, investors and the mass markets under the IGEM brand. 
Over the years, IGEM has successfully generated an estimated RM 8.8 Billion in business leads since its initiation in 2010. This is made possible with the attendance of over 300,000 visitors including delegates, dignitaries and companies from over 50 countries. 
Annually, IGEM houses over 350 international and regional exhibitors. Major players include BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Daelim Industrial Co., First Solar, General Electrics, Toshiba, IHI Enviro Corporation, Japan External Trade Organisation, Korea Environment Industry & Technology Institute, Tenaga Nasional Berhad and many more. 
The key elements of IGEM 2017 will be the showcase of alternative energy options for future cities, eco infrastructure materials and fixtures, energy efficient and electric vehicles, and innovations that will optimise natural resources and minimise residual impact in urban landscapes. 
The 3 day event will also feature insightful discussions and networking sessions with international speakers and thought leaders on the future of developing sustainable urban areas.
