Before I begin to compose my editorial, I should compliment team TFT for reaching out to the web world with it’s online presence which has crossed sixteen lac hits and have been consistently drawing more than two lac perusers every month, ever since it’s revamp in January this year.The information accessible on the google and TFT site says it all.
The greatly anticipated Pragati Maidan revamp can now be assured as ITPO has been able to wreck the Hall of Nations, the biggest obstacle for the project.ITPO must be praised to come out of all the hurdles and begin the revamp.
Since the dismantling drive has begun and renovation plan in place, New Delhi will soon turn into a city known for it’s space in the realm of convention and exhibition space.
The cover story in this edition again goes to Pragati Maidan after the written confirmation of ITPO about the revamp of the project Pragati Maidan. TFT welcomes ITPO’s gesture to write to us details of the project, answering all pending queries.
As you are aware,TFT constantly kept a tab on these developments and kept it’s readers connected with the most recent and inside stories. The 7th edition of IEIA Open Seminar is Mumbai bound and being facilitated by NESCO at BCEC, the so far largest privately owned exhibition venue in India. The reasons could be numerous yet one of them positively being acknowledgment of significance of organizers.
NESCO has been seen more connected with the Indian organsiers in recent past and furthermore observed on different industry platforms, meeting and networking with prospects which is an appreciated stride.
The much anticipated Dhirubhai Ambani International Convention and Exhibition Centre, BKC, Mumbai is presently nearing fruition and will soon fill in the gap of a multipurpose venue in commercial capital of India.
IEIA Open Seminar in Mumbai is expected to be a fabulous event. The fraternity needs to meet and network, and none other than IEIA is holding them togather, consistently,at such gatherings.
However, we still need to see if the direction of the apex body is taking the Exhibition Industry of India to the next level and addressing the burning issues of the sector in India.
Also, IEIA ought to come out of prototype and work for comprehensive development and improvement of the exhibition sector.
Since the body has enough resources , the industry looks upon it to leave behind the sponsors shadow and begin working with each stake holder.
We at TradeFairTimes have been and should remain a non influenced publication and shall continue being an autonomous media to keep you drawn in with news and not simply promotion.
Continue perusing TFT and continue empowering us.
