NürnbergMesse’s international programme of tradefairs continues to gain momentum following the acquisition of the three market leading fairs for the woodworking and furniture production industry in India in 2018 - INDIAWOOD, DELHIWOOD and MUMBAIWOOD.
The company has now added another exhibition to its portfolio, which brings the portfolio up to 16 tradefairs. The India Mattresstech Expo is India’s dedicated tradefair for mattress and upholstery manufacturing.
Peter Ottmann, CEO of NürnbergMesse Group, commented: “The event covers an important sub-segment of the furniture industry and creates valuable synergies for our exhibitors and visitors. It is therefore the ideal complement to our Indian woodworking events”.
Fellow CEO Dr Roland Fleck adds: “The Indian economy is booming. With this latest member in our tradefair portfolio, NürnbergMesse India is yet again reinforcing its position as one of the leading exhibition organisers on the Indian subcontinent.
In 2015 the Indian domestic furniture market was estimated to be worth US$18bn, and by 2027 the figure is expected to reach US$27bn.
Progressive urbanisation, rising incomes and an increasing appreciation of high-quality bedding products are benefiting the mattress industry and the Indian business analytics company CRISIL is forecasting an average annual growth rate for the segment of 10% for the period 2017 to 2021.
India Mattresstech Expo took place for the first time in Chennai in 2013 and is the platform for mattress and upholstery manufacturers, dealers and distributors. The show was previously owned by Unitech Exhibitions Pvt. Ltd., which has been organising national and international tradefairs and conferences since 2001.
Now, under the umbrella of NürnbergMesse India, the India Mattresstech Expo will run 27 February-2 March parallel to INDIAWOOD 2020 in Bangalore.
“By adding the India Mattresstech Expo to the next round of INDIAWOOD we are pooling the entire expertise of the market in one place – and therefore are offering our customers genuine added value specifically for the wood processing and furniture production industry,” says Sonia Prashar, Managing Director of NürnbergMesse India.
“The economy in India is developing brilliantly and the market is becoming increasingly important for the international exhibition industry as well,” stresses Prashar.
The latest edition of DELHIWOOD runs 13-16 March 2019 and is breaking new records, with more than 550 exhibitors from 35 countries gathering over 42,000sqm in the India Expo Centre and Mart in Greater Noida.
Alongside the product family of wood processing trade fairs, the NürnbergMesse portfolio also includes the segments BIOFACH, Beviale, EUROGUSS, POWTECH, coatings, cybersecurity, automotive, refrigeration/AC, pets and GaLaBau.
NürnbergMesse Group is one of the 15 largest tradefair companies in the world and comprises 14 subsidiaries and affiliates and employs more than 1,000 people in 10 locations in Germany, Brazil, China, India, Italy, Austria and the USA. Its portfolio includes around 120 German and international tradefairs and congresses.
