PlumbexIndia'12: It is here again!

February 2012

Indian Plumbing Association (IPA) and AIM Expositions Pvt. Ltd. (AIMEX) are all set to organize one more edition of PlumbexIndia. This being India's only international exhibition of plumbing and allied products, it has successfully established its presence not only in Indian marketplace but in the international arena, as well.

Fifth edition of this powerful platform – PlumbexIndia'12 is scheduled to be held at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Goregaon (E), Mumbai between 16-18 March 2012. With four successful editions in a row, this edition is expected to create yet another benchmark by exceeding almost all the parameters of success!

Divided in four broad product segments – Beautiful Bathrooms; Piping Solutions; Building Technologies and Water Management, this show provides a unique platform to display wide array of products for front-of-the-wall; back-of-the-wall, water management/conservation/treatment/harnessing; pumping technologies and so on.

The strength of this show is its strong and committed members of IPA. In fact, with the assured presence of 'movers and shakers' of Indian plumbing fraternity at this show, it has emerged as a very strong and vocal platform for showcasing new products, processes and technologies related to this hitherto neglected sector of building services.

With unstinted support of plumbing professionals from across the country and rising demand for sophisticated and state-of-the-art plumbing products, PlumbexIndia has been growing northward since its inception four years ago. It is truly satisfying that local and global players go hand-in-hand to enlighten the plumbing professionals with their newest offerings at this show.

Looking to the growing awareness about better and efficient plumbing installations in the country, more and more industry bodies are forthcoming with their whole-hearted support to this event. These organizations are – World Plumbing Council (WPC); International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO-India); Construction Industry Development Council (CIDC); Confederation of Construction Products and Services (CCPS); Indian Green Building Council (IGBC); Institution of Fire Engineers (IFI) India; Fire and Safety Association of India (FSAI); and Brihan Mumbai Licensed Plumbers' Association (BMLPA).

Apart from these bodies, two important international chambers - Indo-Italian Chamber of Commerce & Industry (IICCI) and Indo German Chamber of Commerce (IGCC) have come forward to join this event for the first time ! The Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau (VDMA) – German Engineering Federation has continued its cooperation to this show as Strategic Partner.

As regards the industry support, Kitec Industries (India) Ltd. and Grundfos Pumps India Pvt. Ltd. have continued their association as Principal Industry Partner and Co-Industry Partner, respectively.

There will be one Plumbing Symposium as concurrent event on 16th March 2012 with the theme - Plumbing Installations : Design to Execution within the Exhibition Hall itself. Pentair Water (India) Pvt. Ltd. and Sintex Industries Ltd. have continued to be Symposium Partner. IPA's prestigious recognition – Lifetime Achievement Award continues to be sponsored by Lubrizol.

It is heartening to note that only limited stalls are now available at this show – most of them are already booked by the industry players from within and outside India. With growing awareness about the utility value of PlumbexIndia as most rewarding platform for networking and also business generation, the show this time also is expected to raise the bar. No wonder, success of this show is bound to benefit all the stakeholders – manufacturers, professionals and end-users! So, be there, if you are not there and expand the presence, if you are there!! But in any case, don't miss the opportunity to meet all under one roof or else, the next opportunity will come after one full year! Write to to book the stall, today…
