Indian Trade Fair Duo Set Outstanding Visitor Record
The trade fair duo drink technology India and International PackTech India were extremely successful with a visitor increase of 37 percent. From 25 to 27 September, around 10,250 trade visitors came to the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre to obtain information about solutions for the international packaging, package printing, processing, beverage and food industries.
drink technology India and International PackTech India already took place for the third time together under one roof. A total of 230 exhibitors presented their products on the three trade fair days; 119 of them exhibited at drink technology India, which experienced an increase of approx. 20 percent in its number of exhibitors and occupied net area. The area of food processing was represented at drink technology India for the first time and is to be expanded further in the future at both shows.
The organisers, Messe München International and its subsidiary MMI India for drink technology India as well as Messe Düsseldorf and its Indian subsidiary for International PackTech India, also drew a most positive balance. "We have achieved a completely new level with this result," declared Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Messe München International. "Following three joint events, drink technology India and International PackTech India have finally become established in the India market."
There were also a lot of visitors at events of the supporting programme as at the stand presentations of the exhibitors. The Round Table Talk, held for the first time within the context of drink technology India, especially generated a lot of interest. Five renowned representatives of the international beverage and food industry discussed the topic "Outlook for Beverages and Food in India 2020." Topics such as hygiene, safety and waste management were focal points of the panel discussion, topics with which the Indian industry is increasingly dealing.
The next drink technology India and International PackTech India is expected to take place from April 28 to 30, 2016, again in the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre in Mumbai.
