Congratulatory calls and messages

Post event to the phones of the core organising team kept ringing for weeks on, with thousands of calls from exhibitors and visitors extending their heartfelt thanks to Team PVI 2017 for putting up a show par excellence. This was in addition to over 10,000 online reviews.

A very unique ‘standing inauguration’ surprised many, but this welcome change was much appreciated.

Kailash B. Murarka

Chairman,

We retrospect with pride on the success of PLASTIVISION INDIA 2017. I clearly take this as a victory of the Indian plastics industry. Lot of people asked me what do I see as the outcome of the event, and I clearly feel that what PVI 2017 showcased was ‘business confidence’. The industry clearly knew that this event could add significant value to their brand and business; no other reason why people would invest otherwise.

Thank you to one-and-all for helping us realise this dream. A special mention about Rajubhai for his guidance and support, without which all this would not have been possible. Lastly, a captain is as good as his team. I stand-up to congratulate every member of my team who have stood steadfast in this long and arduous journey.

Raju Desai

Chairman, National Advisory Board

The parameter of success of any event is the business transacted. I am please to highlight here that at PVI 2017; business of over Rs. 2000 crore was transacted. While setting a new landmark, this business has given the much-needed growth to the plastics industry. It is a positive dose of inspiration and confidence. I would like to applaud the untiring efforts of Kailashbhai and Team PVI for this stupendous success.

Rituraj R. Gupta

Co-Chairman

We all remain very excited with the success of this event. I clearly see this as an administrator’s delight. Timely decisions and next to immaculate co-ordination and implementation was the lifeline.

The halls being made available much earlier, reasonably priced hotel bookings, quality as well as quantity of visitors, pre-event buildup, a record online and seamless visitor registration at site, a massive VIP turnout, food, music and more...all made this event a very complete affair.

More than just an exhibition...

An event where knowledge and excellence were recognised

Solar Pavilion

The ‘Solar Pavilion’ at PVI 2017 attracted a huge number of footfalls. It succeeded in creating awareness about this great alternate source of energy that is cheaper, easier to install and guarantees hassle-free operations. Proof of this is the sheer number of enquiries about installing solar systems in farmhouses, factories and for domestic use.

Green Pavilion

That plastics, too, can be good for the environment was the message loud and clear from the ‘Green Pavilion’ organised at PVI 2017. Visitors got a sneak-peek at different recycling technologies and were treated to live demonstrations of recycling waste into fuel and so on.

Job Fair

Industry leaders and government dignitaries visited the Job-Fair pavilion. 1,000 candidates with over 30 employers (India and overseas) made this initiative a huge success.

Infrastructure Pavilion

The infrastructure pavilion evoked a lot of interest with products such as bio-toilet, crossing bridge & tree guard, cool deck, wall cladding, garden equipment, canopy, fencing & garden flooring, loft tank, commode and more.

Medical Pavilion

The medical pavilion acted as a knowledge platform and attracted visitors for plastics in healthcare vide an elaborate display of posters, audio visuals, models and samples highlighting various medical applications and developments.

Assured of Government Support at PVI 2017

PLASTIVISION INDIA, 2017, was inaugurated at the hands of Anant G. Geete, Minister of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises, in the presence of the plastics industry veterans, overseas visitors, and hundreds of thousands of attendees on 19th January, 2017. All present stood up as the National Anthem played in the backdrop, breaking into thunderous applause after the traditional lamp was lit. Balloons of every hue and color filled the atmosphere as Anant G. Geete unveiled the show logo.

The Minister, who had flown in directly from the Capital especially for the exhibition, managed a brief, but firm talk, “We (the government) are with you”, despite having earlier hinted that he was going to say only a few words with the election code of conduct having kicked in. Still, it was enough to put a smile on the lips of Amit Kumar Ghosh, MD, UPSIDC; Haren Sanghavi, President, AIPMA; Arvind Mehta, Chairman, AIPMA Governing Council; Kailash B. Murarka, Chairman, PVI 2017; Raju Desai, Chairman - National Advisory Board, PVI 2017; Achal Thakkar, President, Organization of Plastics Processors of India (OPPI); Naresh Patel, President, Gujarat State Plastics Manufacturers Association (GSPMA); Kamal K. Agarwala, President, Indian Plastics Federation (IPF); E. Sundareshan, Chairman, Indian Plastics Institute (IPI); Ming Yang, DGM, CMEC International Exhibition; Michael Wittmann, Chairman, Wittmann Group; Steve Morris, President and GM Systems, Milacron; Craig Ward, President, NegriBossi Global, and all those gathered there.

Later, at the ‘Plastics in Packaging’ conference organised by the Indian Institute of Packaging (IIP) on 21st January, 2017 at Hotel The Leela Mumbai, Rajani Ranjan Rashmi, I.A.S., Special Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India recalled his interaction with former Environment Minister, Jairam Ramesh, and said, “It is not possible to ban plastics nor is it in the interest of the public. What is the alternate? Cut more trees? Any alternate could harm and degrade the environment even more.”
