The event, which is part of the Win India tradeshow cluster, will run co-located with the MDA India, Industrial Automation India and Surface Technology India events.

Wolfgang Pech, senior vice president in charge of Deutsche Messe’s overseas CeMAT business explains: "India is one of the world’s biggest economies and so has enormous potential over the medium to long term. Indian industrial companies are increasingly aligning themselves with western standards and are therefore looking for quality products and solutions to make their logistics processes more efficient.

"By offering CeMAT India, we’re giving international logistics manufactures a platform where they sell their application-specific solutions into this growing market."
