Providing the Indian corporate world a chance to witness advertising and signage industry’s most advanced solutions, the 36th edition of Media Expo proved to be the perfect way to start off the year in an improving economy both for the exhibiting companies and 9,500 business visitors who attended the fair.
Generating positive impulses among attendees from print, signage, advertising and corporate sectors, Media Expo Mumbai inked a successful business story. Prashant Khomne, Managing Director, Global5 Technologies commented: “Media Expo has created its own benchmark in the advertising and signage industry. Without participating in this exhibition, we cannot say we are a part of the industry.”
Welcoming the high turnout of serious business visitors at their booths, exhibitors shared that they were positive about the interactions and expected strong business in the coming months. Among them was Pradipta Chowdhary, Manager Sales – WFU, Graphic Arts Division, FujiFilm India who said: “For the Indian market, quality is a pre-requisite and price is a big challenge. However, with multiple benefits that our technology offers, we have seen interest at the fair that will slowly but surely give good business results. Media Expo is the right platform for creating brand awareness among the right target segments and increase prospective customer base.”
Reflecting the sentiment, Thyagarajan Iyer, COO – Digital Imaging & Positive Solutions – DPM, TechNova Imaging Systems said: “Indian market appreciates high-quality and eco-friendly solutions but cost is a major deterrent.
