The 10th edition of the construction equipment trade fair – EXCON 2019 was held last month at Bangalore International Exhibition center and provided a platform for the display of technological advancements, innovations, and latest developments in the construction equipment sector. Despite the sluggish Indian economy, the construction industry expects good business. Driving factors will be the trend of mechanization to develop infrastructure in an ecologically sustainable manner, enabling projects on smart cities,  promoting skill development, and position “Make in India” – as the national agenda for achieving holistic growth in the infrastructure and related sectors.

Over the last years, EXCON has developed into the largest of its kind in South Asia with over 300,000 square meters of display area; 1,250 plus exhibitors, including 390 overseas companies from 21 countries and featuring country pavilions from China, Germany, Italy, South Korea, Turkey, and the UK. The event attracted over 70,000 business visitors from India and abroad. Aman Choudhari, Chairman, CII Karnataka State Council said, “EXCON’s initiative over the last two decades helped Bangalore to emerge as the Construction Equipment Capital of India with the presence of global players from both the public and private sectors.” As part of the 10 year celebration, there were special activities like exclusive pavilions on AI, IoT, Robotics, Start-ups, and Components and Parts.
