The 10th edition of PlastIndia, like its earlier editions, was massive so much so that hotels, hostels, boarding including the apartments on Airbnb in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar were running at 100% occupancy on the six days of the show. Price surge on Ola and Uber was unseen before. No wonder, 1,800 exhibitors from 44 countries attracted 2.46-lakh visitors to Gandhinagar.
KK Seksaria, president, PlastIndia Foundation, said, “PlastIndia 2018 has been unique and unparalleled. It has set new records. We initiated visitor’s participation. To the best of our knowledge, the average footfall per day is less than 40,000 in any exhibition. We had more than 40,000 on a day with qualitative participation from all fronts.”
The highpoint of the show was PlastIndia’s flagship reverse buyer-seller meet, which saw nearly 500 buyers connecting with 535 registered sellers in over 1,200 meetings.
As the 12 halls of Gandhinagar’s Helipad Ground were abuzz with activity since Day One, WhatPackaging? team was busy reporting the important developments from the show.
