At a press conference yesterday, organisers said the exhibition, to be held at the Zara Expo halls will feature specialised forum and workshops on architecture and energy efficient buildings and technologies.
The event is organised by Jordan Engineers Association (JEA), Golden Gate, a Jordanian company for exhibitions, and Egypt's Arabian Group for Development (AGD).

Obeidat indicated that green and energy efficient technologies in the field of construction will be a main focus of the exhibition, saying that consumers nowadays are interested in green technology.
Around half of the participating exhibitors are set to be Jordanian firms, noted Souad Jaghoub, director of Golden Gate.
Pointing out that the participation of local firms could have been larger, Hani Ghanem, a member of the organising committee, said lack of sponsorship and support for Jordanian companies have limited their participation in local, regional and international fairs.
Industrial and commercial exhibitors will take part from several countries that include Jordan, Egypt, Kuwait, India, Russia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Lebanon, among others.
