bC India Moving to Delhi

The third edition of bC India, set to take place in December 2014, will be held in Greater Noida near Delhi.

Following two successful events held in Mumbai the BAUMA CONEXPO SHOW – bC India is moving to Greater Noida, near to India’s capital of Delhi. The upcoming third edition of this "International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles" is scheduled for December 15 to 18, 2014 in the India Expo Center in Greater Noida, near Delhi. In total, 170,000 square meters of exhibition space will be available to the event at this venue.

The exhibition center in Greater Noida, close to Delhi, provides both exhibitors and visitors with a significantly improved infrastructure in comparison to the provisional open-air space at the Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai: The India Expo Center not only has fully equipped exhibition space, it also has a business and conference center, a press center and catering facilities. Thomas Löffler, Chief Executive Officer of the show organizer bC Expo India Pvt. Ltd., is satisfied with the move. "We are looking forward to the India Expo Center as the event venue for bC India. We can offer our exhibitors a total of 28,000 square meters of modern indoor exhibition space and 142,000 square meters of presentation space outdoors. This will help bC India become an even more professional trade platform."

The move to the new location also involves a shift in the dates for the show: from February in odd-numbered years, to December in even-numbered years. This also caters to the wishes of many companies for wider spacing within the trade-show calendar. Amit Gossain, Vice President Marketing & Business Development with JCB, states, "It’s good to see bC India shifting to North India where so far there is no large construction equipment exhibition. The Noida Expo Center is a good center for world class exhibitions and the customers will enjoy the facilities. Being close to Delhi, government buyers will also take great interest in visiting the exhibition."

Anand Sundaresan, Vice Chairman and Managing Director of Schwing Stetter (India) Pvt. Ltd., sees the choice of the new site and the dates as very positive. “I am pleased to learn that the next bC India will be held at Delhi. I feel it is a good decision to go to Delhi, and to have the fair in December. It is the ideal month for conducting the fair as the climate in Delhi would be pleasant and make the fair an enjoyable event.”

For the participants in bC India, Delhi in the north of India offers many opportunities and great business potential, something which is underlined by Ramesh Palagiri, Managing Director & CEO of Wirtgen India Private Ltd.. " We are very happy with the decision to hold the next bC India in the northern part of India at Greater Noida near New Delhi. New Delhi is a good location considering that maximum number of infrastructure projects are coming up in this part of the country. Also all our customers visit New Delhi for meeting their clients and they can combine their visit to the exhibition.”
