Organised by Nürnberg Messe for the first time ever, in cooperation with PDA Trade Fairs and supported by Eumabois, the 14-country federation of European woodworking machinery manufacturers, DelhiWood has already gained robust business on its very first day.With more than 550 exhibitors Delhiwood opened its door on March 13 at the Indian Expo Mart, Greater Noida. DelhiWood is more international than ever with exhibitors from more than 30 countries taking part in 12 country pavilions.
Like its earlier editions, DelhiWood 2019 is showcasing the latest in technology, hardware, software, tooling and accessories. It will be brought alive with live demonstrations of operations of log peelers, panel saws, hot presses, edge banders and other efficient and path-breaking machinery, material and software for the rest of three days. The international trade fair was inaugurated by a host of dignitaries important to the woodworking community.
Among them were Mr. Peter Ottman, CEO of Nuremberg Messe, which is now the DelhiWood organiser, Ms. Ulrike Khanu, Third Secretary for Economic Affairs at the German embassy in India; Dr. Caroline Silva-Gazbade, Economic Counselor at the German embassy in India; Mr. Pradip Devaiah, Chairman of PDA Trade Fairs, the co-organiser of DelhiWood. Mr. Ingo Bathe of VDMA, the German woodworking machinery manufacturers’ association; Mr. Rakesh Kumar, Executive Director of India’s Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts and representatives from WoodTech, Canadian Wood, Felder and Jai Industries. The growing demand for office and co-working space, retail expansion and residential projects are offering unlimited opportunities for India’s furniture manufacturing sector. However, nearly 70% of their furniture requirements are being met through imports. This is because as the market demand becomes more focused, the furniture manufacturing industry has to increase its output, meet quality standards and ensure client satisfaction.
Exhibitors, old and new, are excited to share what makes them participate in the region’s leading B2B trade exhibition. The show will be of special importance of furniture & particle board makers, machinery and tool manufacturers ad consumers, saw millers and timber suppliers, architects and interior designers, forestry officials and other woodworking professionals around the world specially from India.
