Rs.22,800 crore) To provide a platform to the large number of international manufacturers keen on entering the Indian construction market, FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry), the Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India (MUD), and dmg events are organizing a mega building & construction show in Mumbai from 2nd to 4th September this year at the Bombay Exhibition Centre The show has evoked overwhelming response and has received confirmations from 10 international country pavilions including Germany, Italy, Spain, Turkey, UK, Iran, Greece, Taiwan, Korea & China. In addition, leading companies from countries like India, Thailand, Japan, UAE, Oman, Vietnam, Singapore, France, Australia, etc have confirmed their participation. Emerging technology trends are redefining the Indian construction industry and taking it to the next level globally. Technology is emerging as a catalyst of change as the industry grapples with challenges like escalating project costs and prolonged construction periods. Technology holds the key to address these issues and enables the sector to react to changing market conditions effectively and efficiently. Aptly, the show focuses on “building products and construction technologies”. As in other industries, widespread deployment of advanced technology products is helping the construction industry to improve quality, timeliness of project delivery and performance as well as to address long term sustainability and environment related concerns.

This time too we plan to exhibit our range, including rebar, wire rod and heavy sections. We believe that this event will be good for our business, knowing that it is taking place in a market that is growing every year and poised for exceptional growth.
