Concrete Show India (CSI) will showcase latest offerings in core categories encompassing Concrete & Construction, Construction Equipments, Construction Chemical, Commercial & Industrial flooring, and mobile Construction tools & Instruments. The three-day show will provide excellent opportunities to industry professionals from various industry verticals like Engineering, Government & Civil Infrastructure, specialized Architects, Consultants and Contractors & Developers to interact and connect.
The event has been well-received by the industry with support from key organizations and Associations such as Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC), Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC), Indian Chapter of American Concrete Institute (ICACI), Singapore Concrete Institute (SCI), Tunnelling Association of India (TAI) and US-India Importers’ Council (USIIC).
Speaking on the announcement of the 6th edition of Concrete Show India, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India said, “There has been a significant push from the government in the infrastructure sector as seen from the Union Budget FY18-19. It also recommended the promotion of affordable housing with the establishment of a dedicated affordable housing fund (AHF) in the National Housing Bank. This drive has provided a huge potential for stakeholders in the sector. From roadways, railways to airports and other smart-city initiatives, the last few years have witnessed a phenomenal growth in the sector, leading to world-class facilities coming up across the country. Also, the Indian government’s move to cut GST rates on construction equipment from 28 per cent to18 per cent has resulted in unprecedented demand in India over the last few months. Against this landscape, we at UBM India firmly believe that The Concrete Show India 2018 will prove to be a channel to the opportunities existing in India’s rapidly growing concrete market.”
Over 150 exhibitors have confirmed their presence at this turnkey event. They include prominent industry players such as Ultratech, Putzmiester Concrete Machines, Godrej Construction, Simem Construction & Environmental Engineering Pvt. Ltd., Chowgule Construction Chemicals Pvt. Ltd., Masa Concrete Plants India Pvt. Ltd., Elematic India Pvt. Ltd., to name a few.
