Busworld International and its Indian partner, Inter Ads Exhibitions Pvt Ltd, held the 7th edition of Busworld India from 10 to 12 November. For the first time, the location was the BIEC in the southern city of Bengaluru (Bangalore). Everyone agreed that the facilities were excellent and that the standard of exhibits was very high. In fact, 72 exhibitors came from nine countries and occupied more than 7,000sq m of exhibition space. There were more than 4,000 professional visitors, plus representatives of the media, during the three days of the exhibition. While the Indian market is dominated by two domestic manufacturers who are tied to exhibitions organised by their national trade association, it was significant that Daimler Buses and Volvo Buses attended Busworld India for the first time. With their long experience of Busworld events in Europe, they recognise the benefits of attending fairs that are exclusively focussed on the bus and coach industry.
