Plastindia draws 2,000 exhibitors to new venue

News this week: Earlier this week, the 9th edition of Plastindia concluded at the new Mahatma Mandir Convention cum Exhibition Centre. The six-day plastics industry trade show featured 2,000 exhibitors from 40 countries and regions. Plastindia was held from 5th to 10th February. According to the show’s organiser, close to 200,000 visitors attended this year.

Plastindia was previously held at New Delhi’s Pragati Maidan. While the media reported some exhibitors are concerned about lower attendance from foreign buyers due to the move away from New Delhi, the show’s organiser, Plastindia Foundation, has stated the next edition of Plastindia in 2018 will remain in Gandhinagar.

Subhash Kadakia, president of the Mumbai-based Plastindia Foundation, was quoted saying, “Plastindia 2015 has surpassed all our expectations.” A board member of the PlastIndia Foundation added, “The footfall was higher than at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi. Besides India, the show saw participation from companies in U.K., France, Austria, Germany, Netherlands, China, Taiwan and Korea, etc.”
