With two exclusive events scheduled at the gateway to eastern India, all industrial roads lead to Kolkata post the Diwali fervour, to witness a grand celebration of Industrial & Engineering products and technologies
Kolkata will play host to ENGEETECH - the 1st International Engineering, Industrial Products & Machinery Expo & Symposium - a comprehensive trade show on engineering industry, scheduled from 18 to 21 November 2010, at the Science City Grounds, Kolkata. Organised by IPFonline Limited, publishers of Industrial Products Finder, and ASK Trade & Exhibition Pvt Ltd, the maiden event of this new initiative has attracted participation from over 150 companies from 30 cities across India, and is all set to be the largest event of its kind in Eastern India. There is also a concurrent event, BACE Expo & Symposium - the 4th International Building, Architecture, Construction, Engineering Technology Trade Show, planned simultaneously. Over 80 exhibitors have confirmed to participate at BACE Expo, Kolkata.
The foremost among these is the Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry, a 157-year-old venerable institution, also the first business chamber in this part of the world, and an honoured "West Bengal Organising Partner" for Engeetech exhibition. "Engeetech is a concerted effort by Bengal Chamber of Commerce & Industry and IPFonline to promote intra country trade and commerce, particularly for the development of the MSME sector. Today domestic demand is driving India's economic growth and Engeetech is a growth driver from both the demand as well as the supply side, not only for the State of West Bengal, but for the entire country," commented P Roy, Director General, BCCI.
This is a view shared by B G Roy, Regional Director, Indo-German Chamber of Commerce, the largest Chamber of Commerce in India. "Engeetech provides an excellent platform for sourcing business opportunities of worldwide industrial products in India. We compliment the organiser for choosing Kolkata as a location to hold such a mega event in the Engineering sector. I wish Engeetech all success," said B G Roy, Regional Director, Indo-German Chamber of Commerce, lending the chamber's support to this exhibition.
Yet another organisation to lend its support is the Kolkata based Oriental Chamber of Commerce, whose membership comprises mainly of exporting firms, and leather and tea processing companies. Engeetech is a landmark tradeshow for Engineering and Industrial goods, bringing buyers and sellers from a cross the country on a single platform. Kolkata is a great centre of commercial activity and therefore this tradeshow can play an important role in promoting trade and industry of the city and the region and also inspire them to rededicate themselves for the economic progress of the country. The Oriental Chamber of Commerce is proud to be supporting IPFonline Limited in this august initiative," said K M Salam, Sr Executive/Acting Secretary, Oriental Chamber of Commerce.
Explaining the rationale for launching the Trade Fairs Division, Linus Lobo, Chief Operations Officer, IPFonline Limited, dwells on the company's past. "In continuation of our role, for the past 39 years, of acting as a bridge between Manufacturers and Buyers, Suppliers, and Consumers through the print medium of Industrial Products Finder, and later through www.ipfonline.com, we have now embarked on an extended mission to bring manufacturers to your door step through our maiden tradeshow ENGEETECH Expo & Symposium," says Mr Lobo, in a message to all the participating companies.
