NürnbergMesse India and Zak Trade Fairs & Exhibitions join hands to strengthen the Façade and Fenestration Industry

“In order to grow further, we need strong partners; with Zak Trade Fairs & Exhibitions, we have a new, dynamic partner at our side and are optimistic that this cooperation will help us further consolidate our position in the Indian market ”, says Sonia Prashar, CMD, NürnbergMesse India.

Syed Ahad Ahmed, Director, Zak Trade Fairs & Exhibitions, believes that the synergies of the event portfolio are a major advantage. “Like NürnbergMesse we also enjoy considerable topic expertise in the fields of “Windows”‚ “Doors” and “Facades”. FENSTERBAU FRONTALE in Nuremberg has around 800 exhibitors from 37 countries and about 110,000 trade visitors and has cemented its position as the world’s leading trade fair. We are proud to become trade fair and exhibition partners in Europe as well as in India”.

The prime objective of the cooperation between both partners is to strengthen the market position for window-construction fairs in India and grow together in this segment.

“The ZAK events have witnessed remarkable growth over the last few years. They have consolidated their position and industry reach through their flagship and various satellite events making it an important addition to our portfolio of B2B fairs“, adds Sonia Prashar, CMD, NürnbergMesse India

In India, the window and facade market is marked by enormous growth and, according to the sector experts, has an estimated value of around 2.2 billion Dollars. In this context, aluminium products dominate the Indian window market with a share of around 50 %, followed by wood, steel and PVC products. In this context, the “Make in India” state initiative in particular has resulted in enormous impulses for the domestic construction sector and at the same time increased the interest of foreign investors in India.

Witness the cooperation
The cooperation between Zak Trade Fairs & Exhibitions and NürnbergMesse India will become visible for the first time between 7 and 10 December 2017 in Mumbai. The Zak fairs “Doors & Windows”, “Glass Technology” and “Aluminium Extrusions” will be held in cooperation with NürnbergMesse India.

“At the end of the day, it is our customers who benefit from this cooperation and collaboration”, assert both Sonia Prashar and Syed Ahad Ahmed.
