Despite extending the available exhibition space to 150,000 square meters (2011: 88,000 square meters), bC India 2013 is already almost fully booked. The organizers have drawn up a waiting list for some sections of the show. Thomas Löffler, chief executive officer, bC Expo India Pvt. Ltd., explains: "Many companies have booked more space than at the first event. That shows the high regard bC India already enjoys among exhibitors."
Also, leading companies in the sector such as JCB have been attracted to bC India 2013 as first-time exhibitors. Amit Gossain, vice president, marketing & business development at JCB India Limited, comments: "We are excited to participate in the bC India exhibition and look forward to presenting new innovations from JCB at the show." Other well-known companies also taking part for the first time in bC India, and joining an already strong exhibitor line-up, are Ashok Leyland, Case, Cifa, Hyundai, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Shantui.
Once again, interest from abroad is high: bC India 2013 will feature first-time exhibit pavilions from Northern Ireland and Japan. And China, France, Great Britain, Italy, Russia, South Korea and Spain will all be organizing joint presentations from their countries for the second time.
The next edition of the BAUMA CONEXPO Show – bC India, International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles, takes place from February 5 to 8, 2013, at the Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai.
