Construction companies and organisations from across the globe are set to attend bC India 2014, as the event has a strong international profile. Aside from India, seven other nations will be represented in dedicate national pavilions. Specifically, there will be pavilions for exhibitors from:

  • UK
  • Germany
  • China
  • Spain
  • North America
  • Italy
  • Korea

As well as a number of different countries, exhibitors will represent many different sectors of the construction industry. Attendees will be able to see displays relating to equipment and machinery for construction and mining, along with the latest innovations in building material production and use. The exhibition will also showcase the latest in construction vehicles, representing the most up-to-the minute technology and build techniques.
The exhibition also benefits from a strong location. Delhi is currently a hub of activity for the international construction sector. It is home to many medium-sized and large companies within this sector, and in many other sectors which drives up demand for high-quality infrastructure and commercial property. Delhi is set to see a number of high-profile projects in the near future, including state-funded efforts to develop a large, new industrial zone – the ambitious Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor. Delhi also benefits from occupying a very central location between other major cities and emerging markets within India and beyond. These include Dubai, Kabul and Rangoon.
The conference will be held in a large, state-of-the-art venue just outside this busy city. The venue can be reached from New Delhi’s busy downtown area in less than an hour by road. The busy, central location is also close to major bodies who are responsible for decisions relating to the development if India’s economy and infrastructure. As such, the new location is expected to drive increased interest in the exhibition from government buyers.
The India Expo Centre offers a higher standard of facilities than infrastructure than venues that have previously played host to the event, such as Mumbai’s Bandra Kurla Complex. The new venue offers a total of 170,000 square meters of high-quality exhibition space. This is made up of 142,000 square meters of outdoor space, and a further 28,000 square meters of versatile indoor space. The venue is fully equipped with features, facilities and amenities to a high standard, and offers a number of conference rooms as well as a business centre. It offers parking for more than 4,000 cars as well as a further 30 large vehicles, such as buses or heavy goods vehicles.
bC India 2014 will be launched with an opening ceremony. Shri Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road Transport, Highways and Shipping, will formally open the event.
