September 27, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): IndiaMART.com is India’s largest online B2B marketplace connecting global buyers with suppliers through business directories, online product catalogs, buy-sell offers, industry specific marketplaces, printed media and trade shows participation. Continuing with its efforts to provide widespread exposure to small and medium businesses, IndiaMART.com, India’s largest online B2B marketplace, has decided to partner with Conventions & Fairs (India) Pvt. Ltd. for one-of-its-kind trade exhibition – ‘Used Machinery Expo 2010’. Slated to be one of the most crucial and significant trade events for buyers and suppliers, the IndiaMART UMEX 2010 is scheduled to be held from 21st October to 23rd October, 2010, at Nehru Center in Mumbai. The unique trade show will provide a perfect opportunity to the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) for a rendezvous with industry experts and buyers from all over the world.
Commenting on the association, Mr. Dinesh Agarwal, Founder & CEO, IndiaMART.com, said, “India is an attractive business destination owing to its growing economy. Amidst this growth, UMEX has been able to position used machinery and allied products as one of the progressive sectors. In the past three years since its inception, the event has received overwhelming response from suppliers and buyers alike. This has strengthened our faith in this exclusive trade show as we partner with them for the third time.”
Primarily driven by the availability and a huge pool of used machinery, competitive prices and shorter delivery periods vis-a-vis new machinery supply, IndiaMART UMEX 2010 aims to emerge as the region’s main sourcing point for used machinery.
