Delhi Wood 2009

The organisers of Indiawood Asia's Largest Sourcing Ground for Woodworking Machinery, Tools, Accessories, Raw Materials and Products PDA TRADE FAIRS have announced another woodworking industry platform "DELHIWOOD" scheduled between 14th and 17th February, 2009 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. Industry sources say response from the Industry to the Inaugural event has been phenomenal, 85% of space in upper & Lower Level of Hall 18 & Hall 14 has already been sold

Mr.Pradeep Devaiah, Chairman & CEO, PDA TRADE FAIRS says DELHIWOOD 2009 is a comprehensive exhibition envisaged to address the needs of this growing market. It aims to showcase the latest in wood processing technologies like sophisticated CNC machines, accessories and tools from all over the world. It aims to bring together a comprehensive range of materials and fittings, to help give an impetus to the growth of industry in this region. This will also go a long way in creation of new entrepreneurs' to enter this arena. Delhiwood will create a hub for exhibitors and woodworking entrepreneurs from Northern India, Central India, Eastern India, North Eastern India South and South East Asia in a single platform in the country's capital city. To keep abreast of the technological advancements in the woodworking industry, Delhiwood is being organized between two Indiawood events.

"INDIAWOOD'S" proven track record of attracting the biggest machinery companies with live displays of production lines attracted pan Indian visitors & visitors from South Asia & South East Asia. The industries trust in our ability to deliver similar audiences is amply reflected in the response to "DELHIWOOD" within a short span post the announcement says Mr.Devaiah.

"Delhi wood" has received a tremendous response already from the Industry. Bookings opened with HALL 18 of Pragati Maidan, the Industry response necessitated expansion into Hall 14 & the Upper level of Hall 18. With the industry majors such as HOMAG, HBR, JAI INDUSTRIES, WOODTECH CONSULTANTS, TAIWAN PAVILION, ITALIAN PAVILION, GERMAN PAVILION, Groups from MALAYSIA, TURKEY, CHINA having confirmed participation 85% of space is already sold. Non-Machinery, Fittings & accessories giants such as HAFELE, HETTICH, ASIAN PAINTS also have continued to place their trust with the Organizers of INDIAWOOD & have confirmed participation in "DELHIWOOD". Further expansion will be planned on a need based manner in temporary hangers within the vicinity of halls 14 and 18, since the other halls are too far from these existing halls.

Mr. Devaiah also stressed that the visitor promotion team at PDA TRADE FAIRS would target to acquire visitors from the following segments : Furniture Manufacturers, Particle board Manufacturers, Architects & Builders, Manufacturers of wood based articles, Craftsmen, Forestry Officials, Plywood Manufacturers, Interior Decorators and Saw Millers

A comprehensive visitor promotion plan for "DELHIWOOD" is being put in place & would ensure attendance of quality visitors through advertisements and articles in industry specific magazines, major dailies and other media. The activity will also include mailing of invitations and visitor information brochures to a large database (close to 150 thousand) compiled from the successful 5 editions of Indiawood. All these along with strategic support from furniture, wood and related industry associations would ensure attendance of the right quality of visitors to Delhiwood.

Stating that exhibitors were thoroughly dissatisfied with the visitor turnout in past exhibitions in Delhi, Mr.Devaiah stressed that PDA is committed to sparing no effort and money to ensure that exhibitors leave Delhi Wood with their order books full, like in the past with India Wood.

It would be important to note here that Mr.Devaiah's take on how the organizers are now in a unique position to offer participants at both Indiawood & Delhiwood added advantages. "WOOD NEWS" India's leading Industry publication is now owned & Published by PDA TRADE MEDIA a group company of PDA TRADE FAIRS. WOOD NEWS will now target readers beyond the Indian boundaries & would reach Furniture manufacturers in South ASIA & South East ASIA. As the official Publication for the event "WOOD NEWS" would provide exhibitors the opportunity to leverage their participation VIA carrying profiles of participants in the edition coinciding with the event. This would ensure visibility for participants not only amongst the buyers in India but also buyers from the neighboring countries. Besides, extensive event publicity through WOOD NEWS will drive quality visitors to "DELHI WOOD"

With the experience of Indiawood, PDA Trade Fairs is ideally placed to guarantee the type of visitor profile that makes the exhibition a success for the exhibitor. Given the background of the success of consecutive INDIAWOOD shows, one can fairly assume that every effort is being made and no cost spared to make Delhiwood the most successful and premier exhibition catering to the North, East & Central India.
