Given the Covid-19 situation and restrictions on international travel plans, the 11th edition of India’s largest plastics show, Plastindia, has been re-scheduled to 1-5 February 2023 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. It will not be held next year in February as previously scheduled.

The organiser, Plastindia Foundation, added, “With things relating to the pandemic definitely looking to shape up well, rescheduling was a difficult call for us too, but it had to be taken, as we also have to respect the safety, convenience and mental comfort of all exhibiting and attending the show.”

As well, another reason for the re-scheduling is also the unfinished construction work on the Pragati Maidan exhibition centre in New Delhi. In an earlier correspondence to exhibitors, Plastindia had stated that the committee had been in favour of postponing the show due to the unfinished work on some of the new halls.

It adds, “So in close to just 15-months from now, we will be meeting you in person at the totally renovated Pragati Maidan, New Delhi in an environment where global travel should be more effortless and one-on-one meetings that should be more unrestrictive; all resulting in brand Plastindia living up to its commitment of creating a global platform for your business growth.”

Plastindia, held every three years, had been held at Pragati Maidan in Delhi for many years and was moved to a spanking new exhibition hall in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, for the last few shows.

The show was last held in 2018 in Gujarat and showcased 1,800 exhibitors, with 550 foreign exhibitors from 44 countries, and around 2 million visitors.

In 2015, the decision on the selection of Gujarat as the location was based on the fact that a majority of India's plastics machinery companies, the likes of Rajoo Engineers and Mamata Machinery, are based in Gujarat. Plus, India's newly elected Prime Minister Narendra Modi at that time was Chief Minister of Gujarat prior to his new appointment and Gujarat was set to enjoy a new industrial policy.

However, due to the difficulty of international participants in getting to Gujarat and lack of proper infrastructure, the organiser had planned to move the show back to its original venue in New Delhi but Pragati Maidan was outdated and in need of an upgrade, which has been on-going.

In its closing remarks, Plastindia adds, “Stay safe and get vaccinated as we all look to close 2021 on a high of business and a low of Covid cases.”
