bauma CONEXPO INDIA, International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles, and iCEMA, the Indian Construction Equipment Manufacturers’ Association, will cooperate closely in future. A corresponding Cooperation Agreement was signed in Delhi at the start of August by Bhupinder Singh (CEO of bC Expo India) and Arvind K. Garg (President of iCEMA). The cooperation between the two partners underlines the great importance of bauma CONEXPO INDIA and makes it the most important event for the construction machinery industry in northern India.
By signing the Agreement, iCEMA has now become the official 'Partner Association’ of bauma CONEXPO INDIA. The partnership will run until 2020. Bhupinder Singh, CEO of bC Expo India, regards the cooperation as a clear signal for the construction machinery industry in India: “We are delighted to have acquired iCEMA as a partner for bauma CONEXPO INDIA. Together, we can continue to expand and strengthen the trade fair as one of the most important platforms for industry and politics in India.”
The construction machinery market in India is experiencing a positive trend, primarily on account of the increase in road construction and earthmoving work. Arvind K. Garg, President of iCEMA, therefore regards the partnership as a logical step to promote the transfer of know-how and the development of the infrastructure in India: “Cooperation with bauma CONEXPO INDIA provides iCEMA with a forum at a global level. This will enable us to examine and recognize trends and solutions for the Indian market from all over the world, for the benefit of our customers. The synergies between two strong partners are therefore being combined – for the benefit of exhibitors and visitors at the trade fair.“
In its capacity as the largest association for the construction machinery sector in India, iCEMA acts as a strong link between industry and government, and campaigns for growth and development in the industry. iCEMA also helps give shape to government initiatives in the construction equipment industry through the Infrastructure Equipment Skill Council (IESC). In the last few years bauma CONEXPO INDIA has become an indispensable meeting point for the construction machinery industry in India. By signing the Cooperation Agreement, the two partners are pursuing the joint objective of promoting topics in the industry through close collaboration and therefore reacting to the needs and demands of the exhibitors and visitors at an early stage.
