The next bauma Conexpo India is now scheduled to take place from 31 January to 3 February 2023 at the India Expo Centre (IEC) in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh. The show will focus on future trends, latest innovations and new projects in the construction, building materials and mining machinery industries.
Bhupinder Singh, CEO of bC Expo India Pvt Ltd, the organiser of the event, said, “We have arrived at the dates of bauma Conexpo India after thorough market assessment and consultation with our key stakeholders. The pandemic has showed our industry a lot of potential for alternative digital communication, business innovations and collaboration, but at the same time also confirmed the huge importance of personal contact and dialogue with the clients, partners and business professionals.”
On the event venue, Mr Singh said, “Greater Noida Industrial Area is located at the intersection of the western and eastern dedicated freight corridors and is the gateway to the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC). It lies within the National Capital Region of India’s capital – New Delhi – and is adjacent to Noida, one of the largest industrial townships in Asia. The integrated township is shaping up as India’s smartest city.”
“At a time when the industry’s mood is gradually lifting, the event at the new venue on new dates will allow the industry to participate whole heartedly and put their best foot forward,” said Arvind Garg, chairman of bauma Conexpo India – task force and EVP and head of construction and mining machinery at Larsen & Toubro Ltd. “The India Expo Centre & Mart is emerging as the centre for world trade with a modern, large, integrated and multipurpose exhibition and convention centre. We look forward to supporting the event and participating in the upcoming edition of bauma Conexpo India 2023.”
Dimitrov Krishnan, president of ICEMA and managing director of Volvo CE India, added, “ICEMA is pleased to continue its partnership and long-standing cooperation with bauma Conexpo India, aimed at bringing industry stakeholders together to network, explore business opportunities and showcase latest innovations.”
Mr Krishnan pointed out that the event will enable the industry to exchange insights and best practices with their counterparts. “An exposure to the vast product offerings from the Indian CE industry will encourage higher mechanisation levels in the Indian construction sector and will also help develop a robust manufacturing ecosystem in the country. This initiative will strengthen India’s position as a major potential exporter of construction equipment to global markets.”
R.N. Gupta, president of Builders Association of India (BAI), further highlighted that bauma Conexpo India “has been playing a pivotal role in the inculcation of new construction technologies. Our association with bauma Conexpo India will further encourage mechanisation of construction processes across India especially in states like Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim in the north-east, where BAI is establishing itself more strongly. BAI National Members Meet can be planned alongside bauma Conexpo India 2023 with maximum participation from pan India.”
bauma Conexpo India is held every two years, covering an exhibition area of 195,000 sq m. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 edition was cancelled. The last event took place in December 2018, drawing 668 exhibitors from 26 countries and 39,173 visitors from India and neighbouring states.
