New venue for bC India
By Chris Sleight08 December 2014
After the launch event in 2011 and follow-up in early 2013 at Mumbai’s Bandra Kurla Complex, bC India’s organisers have taken the strategic decision to hold the 2014 event at the India Expo Centre in Greater Noida, within easy reach of the Indian capital, New Delhi.
This purpose-built exhibition venue offers 28,000 m2 of indoor space and 142,000 m2 of outdoor space for a total of 170,000 m2. Other advantages over the previous site in Mumbai, where the organisers had to start from scratch on an empty package of land, include fully-equipped exhibition space, a business centre and conference facilities, a press centre and catering facilities and parking for 4,000 cars and 30 busses. The venue is within an hour’s travel of downtown Delhi.
bC India is a joint venture between Messe München International (MMI), which organises the Bauma and Bauma China trade shows, among others, and the US-based Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), which is responsible for the ConExpo-Con/Agg event in Las Vegas, US.
