Exhibitions: Pumps The Perfect Coupling between Exhibitors and Buyers
The IPVS is currently the only international show in India that brings together national and international pumps, valves and associated systems manufactures. With 55.2 per cent of the exhibitors having found new partners/clients at the fair in 2012, it looks like IPVS created a perfect platform for exhibitors and visitors alike.
The 6th international exhibition on industrial pumps, valves, pipes and systems – IPVS 2012 was held from 14 -16 December, 2012 at Auto Cluster Exhibition Centre, Chinchwad, Pune. This exhibition was supported by Associations - Indian Pump Manufacturer Association - IPMA, Korean Pump Cooperative – Pumpro and European Association of Pump Manufacturers.
