TrafficInfraTech 2012 in Mumbai

TRAFFICINFRATECH 2012 – Tradeshow for Road Construction and Infrastructure Management – Bombay Exhibition Centre – Mumbai , 17-19 May 2012
Following the success of the premiere occurrence in New Delhi in February of this year, Virtual Info Systems Pvt Ltd, Afidamp Servizi s.r.l of Milan, and the Fiera Bolzano S.p.A./Messe Bozen AG will be organizing the second edition of “TrafficInfraTech”, the Tradeshow for Road Construction and Infrastructure Management at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai, India, which will run from 17 to 19 May, 2012.

Bolzano, Italy, July 2011 – The region of Trentino-Alto Adige has always been a nerve centre of trade because of its strategic location on the north-south transit axis. In order to maintain and guarantee this north-south connection, the road network was already built 150 years ago, while the construction of the Brenner Motorway dates back to 1972. This area of the Alps is now the site of one of the largest traffic infrastructure projects being built in all of Europe: the Brenner Base Tunnel. “The Brenner Axis TEN-T PP 1 from Berlin via Munich, Verona, and Rome to Palermo is one of Europe’s most ambitious projects, and without a doubt, it is the largest investment associated with a traffic project that Europe has ever made,” said the EU coordinator of the PP 1 axis within the framework of “Viatec”, the International Tradeshow for Road Construction and Infrastructure Management in Bolzano.

Bolzano is the provincial capital of Alto Adige/South Tyrol, and thanks to a high degree of cooperation at the international level between universities and research centres, work is carried out in the area of road construction and infrastructure at an extremely high level. And the know-how which is attained in this way can be exported throughout the world. “India is a country with a very high population density and outstanding scientists and researchers,” says Konrad Bergmeister, member of the board of directors of the Brenner Basistunnel SE, and he adds, “That which we are able to impart to this country is a culture of sustainable construction with all of the aspects of the maintenance and monitoring of the infrastructures so that they are long lasting.”
The goal of “TrafficInfraTech” is to provide a gathering for international experts in the sector as well as to bring together supply and demand in a concentrated form. With a current population of 1.2 billion, it is expected that by the middle of the century, not only will India be the most populous nation on earth, but its gross domestic product will rank third in the world, behind those of China and the USA. The sheer size of the Indian national economy, the demographics, and the continuously high rate of growth will make the subcontinent into the most important market on the globe after China. But in contrast to China, development in India is already being driven forward today by domestic demand.*
“With more than sixty exhibitors and over two thousand visitors, TrafficInfraTech gave a great first performance,” emphasizes Reinhold Marsoner, director of the Bolzano/Bozen Exhibition Centre. “Thanks to our Indian and Italian partners, we are able to create an information platform in India for road construction and infrastructure management at a European standard.”
