Indian Ceramics 2015 Adds New Hall
December 31, 2014
The amount of exhibition space at Indian Ceramics, which will be held January 21-23 in Ahmedabad, has increased by 30% compared to the last time the exhibition was held. The new Hall D replaces the former Hall C. Exhibitors are reportedly responding very well to the additional space. Early indications show that many international exhibitors will have much larger stands at Indian Ceramics than they did last year. Another advantage of the new hall is that distances between the halls are much shorter, enabling visitors to get to both halls quickly and conveniently.
Many global players are registered for the fair. Market leaders such as Beralmar, Cleia, Craven Fawcett, Cretaprint, Dorst, Eirich, Esmalglass-Itaca, Händle, H&R Johnson, Imerys, Netzsch, Sabo, Sacmi, Saint-Gobain, Sibelco, SITI B&T, Smalticeram, Smaltochimica, System, Torrecid, Verdes and many more will be represented there. They cover the entire range of classic ceramics, as well as everything from raw materials to technical ceramics. In addition, the Association of Italian Manufacturers of Machinery and Equipment for Ceramics (ACIMAC) is collaborating with the ICE (Italian Foreign Trade Institute) to organize a large Italian joint exhibition stand. This documents how interested the Italian ceramics industry is in the Indian market.
A supporting program will accompany the fair again in 2015. ceramic forum international (cfi) is organizing a ceramitec workshop, the motto of which is “Advances in Ceramic Raw Materials and Process Technologies.” The seminar is supported by ceramitec in Munich and is being held in the Innovation Exchange Area from 10:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. on January 22. International companies such as Amberger Kaolinwerke, DorstTechnologies, Carborundum Universal Ltd., Jyoti Ceramics Inds., XAAR, Esmalglass-Itaca, Durst Phototechnik AG and Beralmar Technoligic are sending speakers to the workshop.
