Record visitor numbers on the first day of Indian Ceramics 2011, in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, have delighted the 120 plus exhibitors who have helped make this year’s event – the 6th to be held – the largest single technology and materials gathering outside Europe and China.
“We have seen over 1,400 visitors on day one” says Derek Burston, Event Manager, “and with the second day traditionally even busier, all indications are that this year we will see visitor numbers overall by some 20%” he added.
This year’s event sold out of exhibition space in late November, and the event has been eagerly awaited by the entire Indian sub-continent.
“It has also been good to see a spread of visitors from Europe, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Africa” added Burston “and gives a great indication that Indian Ceramics is not just a gateway to the most exciting ceramics market globally, but that it is increasingly seen as a key meeting place for the entire industry and a place where deals get done. We know of at least one major tableware kiln purchase that has been confirmed on site today, for example” he added.
With 2 more days to, Indian Ceramics looks set to continue breaking records. Make sure you’re part of the action by visiting the event at the University Exhibition Hall, Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
See you there!
