The 6th edition of the woodworking industry’s eagerly anticipated biennial event, DelhiWood 2019, will be held from 13-16 March 2019, at the India Expo Centre & Mart, Greater Noida.
More than 550 exhibitors from over 35 countries will showcase modern cutting-edge technologies, machinery, tools, fittings, accessories, raw materials and products for furniture production and wood-based manufacturing, housed in a whopping 42,000 square metres of space at the forthcoming DELHIWOOD.
Organised by Nuremberg Messe, in cooperation with PDA Trade Fairs and supported by Eumabois, the 14-country federation of European woodworking machinery manufacturers, the 6th edition of DelhiWood proudly announces an unprecedented 30% growth in size. Besides the customary presence of the world’s leading woodworking technology companies, DelhiWood 2019 is rich in international presence with over 45% international exhibits occupying the total space.
DelhiWood has, over the last 5 editions, evolved to be one of the largest industry-specific events, offering a 360-degree experience for furniture and wood-based manufacturing industries. DelhiWood, initially conceived to cater to the Northern, Central and Eastern Indian woodworking industries has, over the past four editions, grown to be recognised as an international event, drawing visitors from across India and from the SAARC & Gulf regions.
The international flavour of DelhiWood is reflected in the many country pavilions at the show. Participating pavilions from Canada, China, Germany, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Russia, Sweden, Taiwan, Turkey & USA will showcase their home-grown innovations and products at DelhiWood 2019.
Offering a platform for converting potential to commerce, DelhiWood 2019, showcasing modern automated solutions in furniture and wood-based production technologies, will open opportunities to the projected US$-27-billion by the year 2022 in the Indian wood-based furniture and products market.
Among other highlights, DelhiWood 2019 is hosting an International Timber Forum that aims to bring furniture manufacturers, builders, architects, interior designers, civil engineers and construction project consultants to connect with international timber suppliers to understand the different species of timber suitable for India, engineered wood and their properties and availability.
While dissemination of latest technologies is one of the biggest achievements of the show, skill demonstrations for small furniture manufacturers, carpenters and craftsmen will be conducted live in the current edition of DelhiWood 2019 in association with the Furniture and Fittings Skill Council (FFSC).
FFSC will be conducting live skill demonstrations, by the two finalists from World Skills 2019 competition. Delegates from the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) and the World Skills team from NSDC to grace the occasion and increase advocacy.
According to a report of the National Skill Development Council (NSDC), India’s furniture and furnishings industry will need 11.3 million skilled workers by the year 2022. The FFSC is driven by the NSDC to a raft of training programmes and schemes toward meeting this demand without diluting the expected quality standards.
DelhiWood 2019 will deliver robust business interactions for all involved in uplifting India’s dynamic furniture manufacturing and woodworking sectors amidst its shift towards a technology-based industry.
It is a matter of time before India rises to meet its forecast of US$ 27 billion by 2022 on the basis of its own intrinsic market demand.
