Not only professionals of the construction industry but also many citizens were interested in the largest exhibition: summer is the most popular season of apartment remodeling and construction of houses, summer cottages and baths. Large construction organisations set to work also actively: according to experts, though modern technologies make it possible to build houses in freezing temperatures but three short Siberian summer months are still the most intense peak of construction.

The opening ceremony was attended by:

Aleksandr Protsenko,
Deputy Minister for Construction, road facilities of Irkutsk Region;

Konstantin Shavrin, President of the Eastern Siberian Chamber of Commerce and Industry;

Sergei Vakhonin, General Director of the Executive Directorate of the Union of Builders of Irkutsk Region;

Semen Ignatyugin, First Vice President Assistant of the Builders of Russia Union;

Andrei Shapovalov, Director General of Sibexpocentre OJSC.

Aleksandr Protsenko, Deputy Minister of construction and road economy of Irkutsk Region reported:
 — Some factors prevent the development of building industry, among them are: cuts in public expenditure on capital investments, low industry average profitability of construction on the back of advancing price increase for building materials and energy resources, and also insufficient rates of development of innovative processes in the industry.
However, according to Aleksandr Protsenko, generally the situation is stable in the construction industry at the moment; there is no scarcity of basic building materials, because most of them are made ​​in Irkutsk Region. Generally composite and finishing materials, fittings are delivered.
 — The Baikal Construction Week exhibition is held for the 19th time and is becoming increasingly important for the region — Konstantin Shavrin said. — It gives a good start to the construction season in Irkutsk Region. Although now there are new technologies that enable you to build at low temperatures, nevertheless, summer is the most intense season for us.

- Practice of holding of the exhibitions in the field of construction shows that communication is one of its most important points, — Sergei Vakhonin noted. — Now there are no problems with existence of modern technologies and techniques, they exist, the question is how to bring these technologies to the region, present and implement them and there is no well-oiled machine yet. Therefore, everything is solved by means of communication, discussion at seminars and conferences.

At stands participants presented all things needed for construction, warmth-keeping, protection, repair, finishing and decor — materials, tools, technologies and services.
At exhibition stands of three pavilions and the open area it was possible to learn about advantages of wood construction, brick or aerated concrete construction, to choose technological process of foundation, materials for roof and facade, insulation, finishing materials, windows and doors, paving flag, garden decor and many other things.

Sergey Brilka, Deputy Speaker or Deputy Chairman of Legislative Assembly of Irkutsk Region, Honored Builder of the Russian Federation:
 — I went through all three pavilions of the exhibition and was satisfied. Once we were at the beginnings of the Baikal Construction Week exhibition, at that time I was Deputy Governor, and now so many years later the exhibition pleases me. I can honestly say — I am delighted with the fact that we make such a great progress, everything is represented here — absolutely everything for the construction, both materials and modern technologies which become ingrained in our everyday lives. You can hire designers and builders and begin to build and, moreover, to build at the highest, European level. Here, at the exhibition some foreign companies, a lot of firms from other regions, but generally, certainly, representations and the companies from Irkutsk Region are presented. The question is a little bit another -where are construction materials made? I saw excellent panels for low-rise construction from the pine and fir-tree kindling-wood made in Germany on advanced technologies. And we ought to organise such production in Irkutsk Region — the region which is rich in woods. And to build, today there are all opportunities for the high-quality construction — I have already told, ranging from materials to technologies. And all this is presented here, at the Baikal Construction Week exhibition to which I am very pleased.
Aleksandr Pak, Individual Entrepreneur, Shelekhov:
 — I just recently opened my own company — won a grant and received money for business development from Shelekhov city administration. I started working together with wife and we brought the first products to the exhibition. We decided to participate in the exhibition to let people know that there are such goods, such technologies. We offer photo panels from glass which still nobody makes in Irkutsk. Several months ago we got technology and then made samplers. Such panels are used everywhere, both for internal rooms and for bathrooms. We are very pleasant that people are interested in our production.
Aleksandr Krasnov, Head of sales department in Nova Company, Chita:
 — Our Company participates in the Baikal Week exhibition for the first time, we brought ladders and steps which we make. We came here to offer the cooperation for trading companies in Irkutsk and Irkutsk Region. It is pleasant that the interest of both the entrepreneurs and buyers to our staircases is profound we hope that our Irkutsk citizens will be able soon to get step-ladders and ladders in city shops.
Aleksandr Zolotuev, Manager of wholesales in Blago retail complex:
 — Every year we wait for the Baikal Construction Week exhibition to take part in it. We do it to attract new clients and to maintain image of the company. This year brought new items — shingles, drainage systems, Titan glue. As a rule, heat-insulating and facing panels are in the maximum demand. In comparison with the previous exhibitions, now here are much more buyers. Thanks to such particular attention to the stand of our company we have already signed some contracts for deliveries of materials. I figure this year we worked very productively.
Kseniya Shaveiko, Marketing Manager of Mir LLC:
 — Chita ceramics factory plans to enter the Irkutsk market. We know that in Irkutsk there is its own production of bricks, but now the construction season begins and usually brick is sold out well in this period, in fact, there are times when it is even not enough, so we want to offer our own brick. In order to do it our factory participates in the exhibition. We brought a novelty — a building stone, it looks like a huge brick but thanks to it interest to our stand is profound. Such stone is not produced in Irkutsk, it is brought, but the price for our stone is lower because Chita is not far from your city. And there is already a long line for the exhibition samples, many people want to buy it.
Aleksei Ponomarev, Director General of Alit-tm LLC, Honourable builder of Russia:
 — Our company makes an autoclave aerocrete which ideally suits for low-rise construction in seismic conditions in Irkutsk. Our production has been working since 2000, in 2004 our blocks took part in real seismic tests and received use recommendation for construction in seismically active areas. Recently our factory finished at last reconstruction, modernisation and achieved perfect quality of aerocrete. I am pleased that visitors of the exhibition estimated it.
Aleksei Krukovsky, Maksim Stasyuk, representatives of Ego Engineering Company, Moscow:
 — The Baikal Construction Week-2014 exhibition made a very good impression. High level of the organisation and the professionalism of Sibexpocentre employees should be mentioned. The logistics, in particular, arrival and departure of exhibitors is very competently organised. Judging by number of participants, the exhibition enjoys popularity among the leading construction and trading companies of the region. It will be pleasant to participate in the Baikal Construction Week-2015!
We remind that the XX anniversary Baikal Construction Week exhibition will be held on May 19—22, 2015 in Sibexpocentre Exhibition Complex.

We will be glad to see you among participants and visitors of the exhibition!
