drink technology India and International PackTech India continues to grow

The successful trade fair duo drink technology India and International PackTech India continues to grow: about 300 exhibitors will present the full range of products for the packaging, packaging printing, processing, beverage, food and liquid food industry on some 129,000 square feet of exhibit space at the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Center in Mumbai from November 6 - 8, 2012. This marks an exhibitor and exhibit space increase of around 50% compared to the last staging in 2010.

Companies such as Bühler, Clearpack India, Cama Group, COESIA India, Ehcolo A/S, GEA, Haffmans, Hinterkopf, KHS and Krones as well as MultiPack Systems, Ronchi Mario Spa, Sidel, Siemens, Theegarten-Pactec and Ziemann have already registered and announced new product launches. The exhibitors will focus their activities on the requirements of the Indian market and will showcase customized solutions and products. The exhibits will be complemented by a Fair Forum with lectures given by the exhibitors and a conference dealing with current industry issues.

In addition to an official joint German participation with 16 companies at both trade fairs, International PackTech India 2012 will also feature country group exhibits from France, Italy, Turkey and Switzerland while drink technology India 2012 will include joint presentations from Great Britain and China.

The organizers Messe München (drink technology India) and Messe Düsseldorf (International PackTech India) together with their Indian subsidiaries also anticipate an increase in visitor participation. In 2010, the shows welcomed over 6,000 trade visitors. This year, about 8,000 experts are expected to attend, including top-managers, technicians, engineers and end-users from the middle-management.

India is still considered to be one of the most attractive markets in the world. The middle class on the subcontinent is expected to grow to 580 million people by 2025 – a predominantly young and consumerist section of society. Every year, about 60% of the gross domestic product is spent on private consumption. In spite of a slight weakening of the growth forecasts, Indian consumers are the most optimistic worldwide and are still in a buying mood. (Source: GTAI)
