TFT : Thank you for giving your precise time to speak with TFT ? can you elaborate a little on the Agro India 2015?
Rajkumar : Indore Infoline Pvt Ltd. is organsing 4 Days Mega Agriculture Trade Fair in Indore from 6-7-8-9th May 2015 Agriculutre College Ground located in the heart of the city. We are organising Agro India in association with M.P. Seeds and Pesticides Dealers Association, Indore based trade association.
MP’s economy is agriculture based and Indore is the center for marketing of all agriculture input and production. There was no established agriculture trade fair in Indore to cater the requirement of this agri sector. Agro India is basically a new concept to organise this unorganise agri sector in Indore.
First time in India a B2B show on agri sector. Seeds producers , Pesticides and Fertilisers manufactures will get about 12000 dealers coming from all over MP to visit this show.
TFT : What is the number of attendees , you expect at Agro India 2015 ?
Rajkumar : This is a B2B show on agri sector for the first time in India. We are expecting about 100+ exhibitions to show case their products and technology in this fair in 4 Days time. We are expecting about 10-12000 agri dealers from all over MP and other parts of the country. We also expected more than 30,000 farmers to visit this show.
TFT : What was the volume of business generated by the Agro India 2014 ?
Rajkumar : This is the first Expo on Agriculte (B2B) being organised by us in Indore. We do not have the previous data.
TFT : Are there other countries participating at Agro India apart from India and if so can you please name them?
Rajkumar : At this time we do not have any other country participating with us.
TFT : Is it an annual event or biannual event please explain about the frequency and the Cities?
Rajkumar : This is annual event will be organised in the month of April-May every Year in Indore.
TFT : Is this conference targeted only for International market?
Rajkumar : We are organising Seminar on various subjects related to latest updations in seeds production and pesticides manufacturing in the country. One full day we have dedicated to the Agri business traders to understand their problems and opportunities in agri field.
TFT : How do you think Agro India will benefit the participants, sponsors and the industry?
Rajkumar : We are expecting 10-12000 business visitors and specially agri traders from all over Madhya Pradesh and other states too. If each visitor is doing a business of 2-5 lakhs in a year for seeds, pesticides ,fertilisers and agri machinery at his shop then we have the buyers about 200- 500 Crs. value visiting this expo. Agro India will provide these buyers a better choice and reasonable price.
Ultimately this will benefit the farmers with a better price for their agri inputs. Seeds producers from all over the country will be able to get such a huge market in Agro India. Farmers for bulk buying can get a better deal here.
All exhibitors and sponsor of the event will be benefited with an exposure to a very big market.
Probable this si the first time any professionally organised trade fiar in Indore for agri sector.
TFT : Congratulations on organising Agro India, what do you expect from this event to achieve ?
Rajkumar : We are one of the largest exhibitions organiser on Pan India basis for industrial sector. We have our industrial exhibition brands Indexpo and National Expo ( Steel & Power). We are organising industrial exhibitions in Indore, Raipur, Nagpur, Jamshedpur, Kolkatta, Hyderabad, Jaipur and Pune cities this year.
We wanted to serve agriculture sector with our proficiency and experience.
We want to creat our brand in all segments of the business in the country. Agriculture contributes about 65% of our economy. In MP alone more than 5 Crs population is directly or indirectly connected with Agri sector.
If we are able to make our brnad and name poular in this segement we will able to encash our brand value in future.
