1,500 exhibitors grace Plastivision 2013

By 13 Dec 2013

The ninth edition of Plastivision began on 12 December, 2013, at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai. The five-day exhibition, which is one of the 10 largest plastic exhibitions organised globally, will highlight the industry’s progress and outline India’s potential as an emerging market for plastics and machinery.


The exhibition which has the backing of the Indian government will see participations from countries like Canada, China, France, Germany, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Netherland, Russia, Turkey, UK and United States. All India Plastics Manufacturers’ Association (AIPMA) has divided the exhibition into various pavilions according to implementation of the technology being exhibited.

Plastic in Agriculture, Solar Energy Pavilion, Green Pavilion and Plastic for Automation and Robotics are some of the pavilions which are expected to draw the visitors.

Raju Desai, chairman, Plastivision 2013, said, “The quantity of plastic which we consumed in the last 65 years is equal to the amount we will consume over the course of the next 6-7 years and we believe Plastivision will be the technology window for the Indian plastic industry.”

Talking about the changes from the previous editions Kailash Murarka, co-chairman for the show, said, “Many new initiatives to make the ninth edition bigger and better. A pavilion for plastics in Medicare is an attempt to improve the tainted image of plastics in the society. Concurrently there is job and career fare to bring together employers and potential candidates.”

With 1,500 exhibitors and an expected footfall of 1,00,000 people, Plastivision 2013 promises to be one of the biggest tradeshow to be held in the country this year.
