North India’s leading industrial vehicle trade fair, bauma ConExpo India, will not take place this April due to the organisers’ concerns around exhibitors’ ROI, uncertain international turnout and safety protocols.
The decision comes after deliberations with stakeholders and a comprehensive study of the market in solidarity with the industry’s concern. It was ascertained that the organisers’ goal to offer all participants optimal conditions for a successful trade fair would be difficult to implement under the current circumstances. Therefore, the decision to call off the show seemed the need of the hour to protect exhibitors, visitors and partners from such an uncertain situation.
Mr. Bhupinder Singh, the CEO of bC Expo India Pvt Ltd. said, “We have taken this decision after considering all the facts as we know them today and the responsibility we hold towards our stakeholders and the global business community. Both the uncertainty regarding the safety of our stakeholders and exhibitors and the return on investment pushed us to take this tough call.”
The decision was supported by Mr. Arvind K. Garg, Chairman, bauma ConExpo India who remarked that, “it would not have been a wise decision to carry on the show despite recognising the challenges at hand. As responsible members of the industry, this crucial decision will help to safeguard the stakeholders from the uncertainty of the situation and will help the industry to become more resilient in the face of adversity. We are unable to promise our industry, the exhibitors and our customers the high standards, that they expect from us at bauma ConExpo India. We promise all stakeholders a great show next year and count on their support, as always.”
