Do you know what ARCHIDEX is all about? Do you ever hear of the name? Do you know what kind of business they are engaging in?

Well, if you never heard of it, it is actually a new digital experience in the business building across borders with immersive and virtual engagements with the architecture, interior design, and building industry.

It is also a dynamic industry business event in a hybrid platform that connects you with the largest community of Malaysian and global architecture.

ARCHIDEX is Southeast Asia’s most successful annual industry trade event. It managed to connect industry professionals with world-class architects, influential speakers, and exhibitors to gain insight into current developments since its inception in 2000.

All I can say is ARCHIDEX is an important event for architectural industry captains and professionals, serving as a platform for them to construct and build stronger businesses in the new era industry.

The terms of ARCHIDEX stand for Architecture, Interior Design & Building Exhibition.

As of now, ARCHIDEX has evolved to become Asia’s Leading Architecture Business Event jointly organised by PAM (Pertubuhan Akitek Malaysia or Malaysian Institute of Architects) and C.I.S.

So, what are PAM and C.I.S all about?


PAM was originally established as the Institute of Architects Malaya (IAM) in 1920. PAM was registered with the Registrar of Societies Malaysia on 20 January 1967 under the present constitution.

PAM is the governing body for engineers. It appoints arbitrators when the contract used by the parties is a PAM standard term contract. In addition to arbitration, it administers other forms of ADR.

The PAM President is Ar Sarly Adre bin Sarkum. Ar. Sarly Adre Sarkum is an architecture futurist, sustainability proponent, and design activist. Currently, he helms the hybrid architectural design firm SA or Sarly Adre Sarkum Architecture Sdn. Bhd.
