The CEA Pavilion – the voice of the UK at bCIndia 2013 – Flying the flag for Britain.

The CEA (Construction Equipment Association) in conjuction with UKTI (UK Trade & Investment) has once again succesfully organised a ‘high impact’ UK Pavilion (Hall H2 Stand F22) at the forthcoming bCIndia exhibition which takes place in Mumbai India from 5th – 8th February this year. The dedicated Pavilion will feature 17 UK exhibitors, comprising construction equipment companies, industry suppliers and UK associations.
The last bCIndia in 2011 had 508 exhibiting companies from 36 countries and attracted 24,823 visitors from 71 countries! So it’s easy to see how the smaller exhibitor might otherwise get lost in the show’s enormity without the umbrella of a high profile area devoted to UK industry. The CEA has taken the strain out of exhibiting at a show of this size and offers exhibitors a cost effective fully managed, fitted turnkey shell scheme stand freeing up exhibitors to do what they do best – promote and sell their products!
Joanna Oliver MBE, director of Global Programmes at the CEA and organiser of the UK Pavilion at BC India said, “It’s great that we are able to help so many UK companies at bCIndia. Even better that we can do it with the support of UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) both for exhibitors and for the CEA to run the UK Pavilion and generic UK Information Centre to promote UK Construction equipment. Some of the Pavilion exhibitors are pretty new to export and some are old hands – that’s part of what makes the UK Pavilions a success for the exhibitors – everyone is willing to share experiences, export tips and contacts and lend each other a hand where needed.”
