Overwhelming response, record footfalls at ELECRAMA 2018
The 13th edition of ELECRAMA recorded more than 298,0000 footfalls during the 13th edition of ELECRAMA 2018. Over 1,200 exhibitors showcased their products and services at the biggest showcase of electrical and electronics manufacturers.
Organisers said business queries or more than 1 billion US$ were estimated at the event being held at India Expo Mart in Greater Noida from March 10 to 14. “We had a lot of visitors from 120-plus countries who experienced transformational developments taking place in India and globally,” said ELECRAMA Chairman Vijay Karia.
“The country has recorded rapid economic growth in recent years and is fast transitioning from fossil fuels to renewables sources to generate electricity. It is heartening to note that ELECRAMA 2018 emerged as a platform for knowledge-sharing with a strong focus on electric vehicles, Internet of Things (IoT), storage solutions and renewable energy,” he added.
Karia said the industry is aligned with government initiatives like Make in India and Power to All 24 x 7 by 2022. Manufacturers are looking forward to a favourable policy environment to capitalise on new opportunities being created by artificial intelligence, machine learning, block chain and a combination of innovation in manufacturing of electrical gadgets, equipment, machineries and energy efficiency programmes.
Jye Ying Lu, Director of Malaysia-based Powerpoint Electrical, said: “This has been my second visit to ELECRAMA. It is very well organised and everything is inter-linked. We have had good opportunity to meet Indian manufacturers. The Indian industry has matured and improved a lot over the past 10 years. The products are well received in Malaysian and other markets as well.”
Ornousa Sok Pona, Director at Thailand’s government-owned Provincial Electricity Authority, said: “In terms knowledge-sharing, ELECRAMA is of immense value. We hope to explore new products available in Indian markets.”
