Well-known representatives of the ceramics industry gave 30-minute presentations and discussed challenges and future concepts for the Asian market.
The networking programme “Buyer-Seller Forum”, which was organized by Indian Ceramics & Ceramics Asia for the first time, generated huge interest and reported strong participation. Top decision-makers conducted over 150 face-to-face meetings with the exhibitors.
Another popular event was the iBaRT(India Brick and Roof Tile Exhibition) Workshop titled “Mechanization of Traditional Indian Clay Brick Industry: Challenges and Opportunities”, which focussed on the current and future significance of the heavy clay sector, one of the industry’s key segments.
