Much before the gates opened to the Clean India Technology Week 2020, visitors had queued up at the Registration counters. Introducing self-help badge counter and new software enabled badge generating system, CTW2020 began with a constant flow of buyers that continued all through the three days of the exhibition.
More than 10,000 buyers from 22 countries visited the expos with specific requirements and were able to successfully conclude deals. Many exhibitors had three common things to say, “Can’t believe it… it was a superb show”; “I am definitely participating next year”; “Can this show be for four days?”
The report here below gives a complete brief on the trends in the industry, the direction the market is moving towards, the buying preferences and digitization.
“While airports and multiplexes are both vast facilities, people only transit through airports but spend a few hours at multiplexes. Hence, their cleaning needs are different. Unlike other multiplexes, some of them do not use tip-up chairs for patrons; hence, it needs flexible vacuum cleaners with long cords which can be used by employees to quickly clean under seats from the auditorium steps itself, after each show.” The exhibitor, who was informed about this specific requirement at a multiplex, about three years back, was proud to showcase a customised product at CTW 2020. The same visitor, who has been looking for this product for years, finally found at the Show.
This story is representative of thousands of buyer-manufacturer interactions that unfold over the three days of the Clean India Technology Week 2020, from February 13-15 at the Bombay Exhibition Center, Mumbai. Every anecdote was about a manufacturer inventing, refining or designing products to answer buyers’ fervent prayers, and facility and procurement managers being overjoyed by coming across machines and chemicals that were tailored to their exact specifications.
CTW 2020 was home to four buzzing Expos: Clean India Show, Laundrex India, Waste Technology Expo and Car Care Expo. But if you think each expo was an independent entity that had nothing to do with the others and that each visitor explored only one expo, think again.
Alok Tiwari, Principal Executive Director – Environment and Housekeeping Management, Indian Railways came looking for a list of solutions: Ride-on cleaners for railway platforms, with four-year contracts in the offing; BOOT laundry providers who would process the 900,000 bed sheets the railways need washed every day, on a 10-15-year contract (as well as for low-cost solutions to trace linen), and bio-methanation plant experts who could set up projects that use waste to power railway kitchens. If, like him, even a casual visitor had walked around the Expo area, he would have found all of the above, and more, under one roof.
