The 7th International Plastindia 2009 Plastics Exhibition and Conference, organized by the Plastindia Foundation, has received what organizers are calling an “overwhelming response” from exhibitors.

According to the foundation, this year’s installment of the triennial show will be occupying 20 per cent more space than the last show. The triennial six-day event will take place from February 4-9, 2009 at Pragati Maidan, in New Delhi, India.

“Online booking for Plastindia 2009 has been a sellout and a waiting list of over 120 exhibitors is already created,” said Plastindia Foundation president Arvind Mehta. This year’s event will feature around 1,300 exhibitors, including 500 overseas exhibitors from 35 countries. Additionally, the event will welcome about 100,000 visitors, a tenth of whom will be overseas visitors.

Around 20 countries will be represented by official national participation. The Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) has plans to participate in Plastindia for the second time with a small pavilion, open to all members of the industry who manufacture product in Canada containing no less than 60% Canadian content.

This year’s event will also feature PROPLAST, which will be housed in an exclusive hall and serve as a one-stop shop for business in the entire plastics processing chain. Proplast’s aim is to showcase India’s capabilities, and will have products from various segments of the Indian plastics processing industry.

Other concurrent events this year include the India-China Plastics Industry Summit 2009, the fifth Plasticon Awards, the India-USA Plastics Industry Summit 2009, and a Plastic Waste Management and Recycling One Day Conference.

Additionally, organizers will host a two-day international speciality conference that will focus on topical issues aimed at attracting the attention of the international business community. The conference will bring together eminent scholars and industrial experts to promote the development and growth of the regional plastics industry.
