Addressing the gathering at the show, Raj Manek says, “For the past 20 years, the exhibition has been providing an opportunity for people who are at the cutting edge of machinery to bring their imagination to reality. It gives me great pleasure as we inaugurate the grand 50th edition.

The trade show also attracts a myriad of visitors from across the sector to be a part of numerous innovative machines which will be showcased by the exhibitors for demonstration.”
