The Industrial Pumps & Valves Exhibition (IPVS), organised by Orbitz Exhibitions, witnessed an august gathering this year in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, on the 11th November and continued to welcome visitors from around the world until its close on the 13th November 2011.

The event assembled around a hundred companies from all over India, who showcased their latest products and technologies for the local as well as international market, whilst the visitors received good exposure to the recent developments in pump design, valve capabilities and the process plants that use them.


Exhibition With an International Character

The exhibition was inaugurated jointly by Rajiv Amin, President of IPMA, and Yagnesh Buch, Deputy General Manager, Marketing at KSB Pumps. In their inaugural speeches, both of them addressed the issues of system optimisation, sealing systems, fugitive emission and environmental controls, in the context of pumps, valves, process plants and systems. Some of the companies who were exhibiting their technologies included KSB Pumps, Roto Pumps, Crompton & Greaves and Larsen & Turbo. The concurrent conferences included delegates representing a cross section of the industry from companies like Essar Energy, Reliance industries & Dorr- Oliver. There were also a number of international delegates from France, Spain, Russia and Nigeria. The international character of the exhibition was further enhanced by the presence of some overseas speakers as well.

Exchanging Ideas for Pumps and Valves

IPVS successfully created a platform for exchange of ideas between the manufacturers and users. Also, there was enough scope for the distributors, suppliers and consultants. Most exhibitors were of the opinion that given the upswing in fluid handling industries, irrigation and urban infrastructure projects, IPVS serves as a good platform for an all-round networking event. The next IPVS is scheduled for 14th December 2012

at Pune, Maharashtra.
