- NürnbergMesse’s Indian portfolio grows to 16 trade fairs
- India Mattresstech Expo (IME) complements woodworking events in India
NürnbergMesse’s international programme of trade fairs continues to gain momentum. Following the acquisition of the three market-leading fairs for the woodworking and furniture production industry in India in 2018 – INDIAWOOD, DELHIWOOD and MUMBAIWOOD – the company has now added another exhibition to its portfolio. The India Mattresstech Expo, or IME for short, is India’s dedicated trade fair for mattress and upholstery manufacturing. “The IME covers an important sub-segment of the furniture industry and creates valuable synergies for our exhibitors and visitors,” says Peter Ottmann, CEO of NürnbergMesse Group. “It is therefore the ideal complement to our Indian woodworking events.”
The acquisition of IME is an important step for NürnbergMesse, as the Indian furniture industry offers good prospects for the future.
Under the umbrella of NürnbergMesse India, the IME Expo will celebrate its premiere from 27 February to 2 March parallel to INDIAWOOD 2020 in Bangalore. “By adding the IME to the next round of INDIAWOOD we are pooling the entire expertise of the market in one place – and therefore are offering our customers genuine added value specifically for the wood processing and furniture production industry,” says Sonia Prashar, Managing Director of NürnbergMesse India.
In the meantime, the 6th International Trade Fair for Furniture Production Technologies, woodworking Machinery, Tools, Fittings, Accessories, Raw Materials and products is running at India Expo Mart, Greater Noida. DELHIWOOD, taking place for the first time under the umbrella of NürnbergMesse India from 13 to 16 March 2019, is breaking new records. It is bigger than ever, with more than 30,000 visitors and over 550 exhibitors from 35 countries gathering on some 42,000 square metres.
