drink technology India in Bengaluru: Event date postponed
• Organizers responding to the industry’s request
drink technology India (dti), the most important event for India's beverage and liquid food industry, has been postponed at the request of the exhibitors. The trade fair will now take place from April 10 to 12, 2019. The Bangalore International Expo Centre will remain the exhibition venue. The second event date of dti in 2019, in New Delhi, remains unchanged.
The fair had been planned for the end of February (February 28 to March 3) in Bengaluru and is mainly aimed at Indian exhibitors and visitors. The premiere of dti in the metropolis has now been postponed following close consultation with the industry.
Numerous Indian exhibitors had requested that the event not be held at the planned date. The background to this are the production cycles and the annual statement of accounts of the companies that tie up the workforce during this period. Accordingly, the number of registrations for the new date has remained virtually unchanged: around 95 percent of the Indian exhibitors who had already registered will also attend the new date. The international companies will also remain loyal to the event in April.
“Our goal in Bengaluru and New Delhi is to connect Indian exhibitors in particular with visitors from these metropolitan regions. By postponing dti in Bengaluru to April, at the request of the industry, we are responding to this strategic approach,” explains Bhupinder Singh, CEO of Messe München India. In view of the varying presence of the sectors in the Indian regions, the focus in Bengaluru is on fruit juices, beer, spirits, wine and liquid food.
In 2019, dti will take place twice. After the premiere in Bengaluru, dti will be launched in New Delhi from 5 to 7 December as a combined fair with pacprocess India, indiapack and food pex India by Messe Düsseldorf. Mumbai remains the international hub for the beverage and liquid food industry in India, and the next event there will take place from December 9 to 11, 2020.
