After two events held in 2007 and 2008, both planned as conventions with an accompanying exhibition, dti is taking place as a trade fair in Mumbai for the first time. The progression from convention to trade fair has also necessitated a change of venue, and dti is moving from its previous location of the Grand Hyatt Hotel lobby to the Bombay Exhibition Centre. International PackTech India (www.packtech-india.com), organised by Messe Dьsseldorf and its subsidiary Messe Dьsseldorf India, is taking place at the same time and at the same location as dti. Trade visitors will greatly benefit from this merger, because the two fairs will form a large joint trading platform for customers from both the packaging and the beverage and liquid food industries.
