The organizers of SinoCorrugated South and SinoFoldingCarton recently visited New Delhi, India, to promote their two exhibitions by taking part in IndiaCorr Expo from October 17 to October 19.
In recent years, India’s manufacturing and retail industries have undergone rapid development, attracting global attention as a result. The South Asian giant’s packaging industry, which provides key services to manufacturers and retailers, has also boomed. As a result, the production value of India’s packaging industry is expected to reach USD 60 billion within the next five years.
This was the first ever IndiaCorr Expo, co-hosted by Reed Manch and Reed Exhibitions Shanghai. In total, the show attracted 5,179 visitors and spanned a total exhibition area of 5,700 sqm. Reed Exhibitions China, organizers of SinoCorrugated South 2014, featured booths at IndiaCorr to promote next year’s edition of the Chinese show. The SinoCorrugated South booth proved to be a big draw among visitors who represented corrugated factories as well as suppliers of equipment and consumables.
In 2014, SinoCorrugated South and SinoFoldingCarton will be held concurrently at Guangdong Modern International Exhibition Center in Dongguan from April 10 to April 12. Already, all the space in Exhibition Hall 3 has sold out, and the organizers have added Halls 4, 5 and 6 to satisfy the extensive demand from would-be exhibitors. With these additions, the show’s total exhibition area is expected to reach 60,000 sqm.

During the conversations, they talked about the development of their own companies, analyzed the current status of the corrugated market and pledged their full support to SinoCorrugated South 2014.
Mr. Madan affirmed that SinoCorrugated South and SinoFoldingCarton are considered top events in the corrugated industry, and that the ICCMA will continue to send strong groups of visiting delegations to the shows. He further went on to confirm that he himself would join next year’s events, to learn more about the Chinese corrugated market.
IndiaCorr Expo 2013 featured excellent services and facilitated great trade and cooperation opportunities among exhibitors and visitors. The latest technologies and solutions in corrugated paperboard manufacturing were on full display. The show helped exhibitors to expand their market in India. It also benefitted Chinese corrugated manufacturers and suppliers by giving them an accurate insight into the Indian paper box industry and the corresponding market. This was key to building a firm platform through which entry to the Indian market could be launched.
