Waste Technology India Expo
Most enquiries were from dealers or distributors, working with the government and with CSR wings of corporates, said Netel India’s Sonali Sawant. Kam-Avida’s GMSales Sanjeev Hallur mentioned that many people are not aware of the range of solutions they can use; visitors impressed by his stall included municipal authorities from Guntur, Solapur, and Vasai-Virar, the latter of whom scheduled a time for an on-site demo during the Expo itself.
The aforementioned official from Solapur was Vikram Patil, Assistant Municipal Commissioner.
He said: “I joined this posting just yesterday, and am glad I came here today, because I have already found the smart solutions I was looking for. We intend to take this forward and sign MoUs with some of the exhibitors here. We are particularly glad to have found low-cost Personal Protective Equipment for out safai karamcharis.”
Another municipal visitor was Sanjit Rodrigues, Commissioner of the Corporation of the City of Panjim, Goa. Praising the show, he said: “One thing that this forum provides is networking. We get to know what is new, and what is in the pipeline in terms of innovation and improvements. And by talking face-to-face with exhibitors, we immediately come to know if a solution will work for our specific problem.”
Agreeing with him, Ashish Pandya of Luxe Engineering and Energy Solutions, Baroda said: “Everything we wanted to know, we have learnt right here. We came to learn basic things, but we got thorough detail. After this, there is nothing left to ask. The Show is a one-stop knowledge hub.”
Such was the irresistible draw of the show that Nitesh Singh- Sr Sales Executive, Supreme Industries let us in on a funny thing he had noticed; people who had come to the Bombay Exhibition Center for other, unrelated expos decided to spend a few minutes at the CTW 2020, and ended up staying back for hours!
Visitors and exhibitors agreed on one thing; there has not been a better planned, more fruitful show in many years. We have no doubt that next year, after attending the Clean Technology Week 2021 from February 17 to 19 at the same venue, they will have the same thing to say!
