Upcoming World Smart Grid India Week 2011 to Address Key Challenges and Issues for India Smart Grid Roll-out

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

India, the largest democratic state, has the fifth largest electricity grid and third largest Transmission & Distribution network respectively in the world. However, due to the dramatically increasing economic activities and rising electricity consumption, there has been a significant challenge to face for Indian government. Origins of India’s smart grid efforts are multi-factorial in nature but primarily concern three main issues which are the subject of current or planned government backed initiatives: 1) Balance the supply and demand of the power market; 2) Electrify a large segment of its rural population to receive electrical services; 3) Optimize electrical usage by being able to manage loads and mitigate operating inefficiencies. Furthermore, central government involvement in the smart grid has expanded beyond the confines of Ministry of Power into an inter-department task force known as India Smart Grid Task Force.

Expo Summit 2010: Nothing Get Bigger Than This

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Expo Summit 2010 is all set to scale new heights this year around. After receiving an overwhelming response and 224 participants last year, Expo Summit 2010 is back with a bang. Scheduled to be held from June 4-5 at Hotel Le Meridien, New Delhi, this two- day conference intends to bring in more representation of the International stakeholders from the world exhibition fraternity. The highlight of the event is its encouraging number of participants. We are pleased to reveal that more than 300 participants ranging from exhibition organizers, booth fabricators, logistics companies and service providers from across the globe would be present at the Expo Summit 2010. What is most heartening is the fact that international associations from world over have expressed their keenness to be associated with this high profile event. Expo Summit 2010 is perhaps the only medium through which service providers are able to tap the entire Indian Exhibition Industry extensively that is growing at a very encouraging rate.

Undoubtedly, India holds a commanding position in the list of big and influential international organisers across the world. However, there are quite a few issues that need to be addressed in order to make India the next launch pad for Asia. While, the exhibition trade, globally had advanced to a larger extent, India continues to deal with issues related to stiff government policies and inappropriate venues. In order to ensure that India is indeed the potential hub of exhibitions across the world, it’s very important to adopt a unified stand over various issues of concern and match up the difference that the West has laid for us.

With Expo Summit’ 09, a foundation stone was laid for the Indian Exhibition Industry to build a strong ground that is recognised as an industry. The need to take a forward step in unifying the entire sector and to adopt a unified stand before the policy makers was felt. When Expo Summit’ 09 was taking shape, the industry felt that it would represent its strength and challenges before the policy makers sitting on the other side of the table. However, by the end of the summit, all the industry stake holders, including the policy makers and autonomous bodies came to the consensus that none of them were actually on the other side. Rather, they all were a part of a unique cycle and agreed to adopt a collective approach in the right direction to maintain the graph of augmentation, moving upwards! It was very heartening to witness the formal ‘discussion’ being transformed into a healthy ‘dialogue’! The challenge before Expo Summit, 2010 now is to start the second chapter of this dialogue!

Expo Summit 2010 will reinstate its objective to provide the required platform to the exhibition fraternity to stand together. To strengthen this pledge, Indian Exhibition Industry Association (IEIA) has also extended its unconditional support to the event. “The Indian exhibition industry has surely benefitted from the platform of Expo Summit being offered by Manch Communications. The association finds a definite synergy with the objective behind this event and will extend all possible support to the organizers to make it a grand success� says Anil Arora, Hon’ Secretary, IEIA.

“We have started promoting the event in all possible ways to attract more international speakers and organizers who are eyeing on India to enter and set up their shops. We got an excellent response at UFI Asia Open seminar at Taipei with confirmations from industry stalwarts like Paul Woodward, Michael Duck and Mark Cochrane to speak at the summit. We would also attend UFI Middle East Open Seminar in Bahrain later this month to attract more delegates from that part of the world. We are committed to deliver a prolific experience to all Indian delegates in the summit� says Anuj Mathur, Director, Manch Communications Pvt. Ltd.

Since its formal launch, Expo Summit, 2010 is drawing overwhelming response from various segments of exhibition industry. Some of the international organizations have begun to show keen interest in the event and have also expressed their willingness to be part of it! Litmus Meroform and RE Rogers India have extended their support in the capacity of Foundation Partners of the event. Roder HTS Hocker, the world leader in the tensile structures and Siddhartha Logistics, the new age logistics solution provider have come forward in the support of the event as Associate Sponsors. The event is well promoted by several online and print media covering the trade.,, Events Venues and Avenues are contributing towards the event’s promotional activities.

“We invite all industry stakeholders to come and attend the two day conference and go back with a motivational approach towards their businesses. Indian companies will surely get a chance to boost their business by venturing with their international counterparts� concluded Anuj Mathur.
