Clean india Pulire: ripe for growth
Clean India Pulire, which was held in Mumbai earlier this month, was, according to exhibitor TVH's Meindert de Boer (www.tvh.com): "A good show... a warm and friendly show that is still in its early days but which offers good opportunities and is ripe for growth.
"It was a big event showcasing new technology, equipment, tools and cleaning chemicals. More than 120 exhibitors showcased more than 300 brands from 12 countries... exhibits included commercial and institutional cleaning equipment, tools, chemicals and industrial cleaning, facilities management, pest management and Washroom hygiene solutions."
A combined report by Clean India Journal, Clean India Pulire 2013, Clifford H.S., John Ringness, says of the 10th edition of what was known as the Clean India Show:
"The three-day Clean India Pulire 2013, which concluded last Saturday, recorded 99% of exhibitors and visitors saying 'it's an excellent show and the best'.
At the sprawling MMRDA Grounds of Bandra-Kurla Complex more than 5,000 visitors from across India and other countries including Denmark, France, the Middle East, Germany, Italy, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China, the UK, Switzerland and elsewhere, commented on the fantastic products and services showcased by both indigenous and international manufacturers.
Not only did Clean India Pulire attract visitors from newer segments, but it also set records of 42 new exhibitors, new product categories, new pavilions and above all a record launch of 65 new products.
More than 80% of the exhibitors concluded top transactions within the first two days of the show itself, with day two registering a marked increase in the number of visitors on a single day at this event. Exhibitors shared their experience on the turnaround of quality trade visitors and end users from over 20 business sectors.
Clifford H.S. James, CEO - Just-Clean said: "I have been roaming around the world for the past few years. We need a bulk amount of cotton mops and wipes - around four lakh per annum. I have come to the show from Denmark and indeed am satisfied with the kind of discussions I had with indigenous manufacturers /exhibitors."
Knowledge-based seminars being held during trade show, interested delegates from industrial segments on all the three days. John Ringness, Chief Facilities Officer of Kohinoor Group, said: "The experience has been good. I attended one of the seminars, and in fact would like to quote one of the speakers, who said that for the past 24 years it has been the best seminar ever held on cleaning in India."
Out of the sample of 160 visitors expressing their opinions about the show, 136 people, including international visitors, said CIP showcased everything required for cleanliness/hygiene under one roof.
