New Dates for Media Expo New Delhi and Mumbai editions

4 Jun 2021

On account of the developments around the current Covid-19 situation and its relative impact on the safety, well-being and continuance of business, Messe Frankfurt India has announced new dates for the New Delhi and Mumbai editions of Media Expo.

Even as companies look forward to economic revival, the continued difficulties posed by the pandemic make it necessary for industries to recover, plan and prepare before they can get down to business. The organisers feel that moving the show ahead will allow this additional time and is a necessary step that will in-turn create a healthy business environment when the industry can finally come together. “Exhibitors, just like organisers, are working around undefined parameters which require adequate planning flexibility. We are glad to have the support from the industry and our exhibitors whose interests are at the centre of this decision,” shared Mr Raj Manek, Executive Director and Board Member, Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings Ltd.

While the New Delhi edition is scheduled to take place alongside India's renowned exhibition for the Lighting Industry – LED Expo, from 18 – 20 November 2021 at India Expo Mart in Greater Noida, the Mumbai edition will open its doors on 12 – 14 May 2022 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre. Focused on working together with venue and service providers to align safety measures with government guidelines, Mr Manek added: “Right now, our focus is on the well-being of our exhibitors, visitors, employees and all stakeholders and we wish for everyone to be safe and in good health. In the coming months, our efforts will be strongly focused on meeting safety requirements and working in co-operation with venue authorities, service providers and all stakeholders to implement resolute measures.”

With a comprehensive safety concept under the ‘MFISafeConnect’ standards, Media Expo’s New Delhi and Mumbai editions aim to re-unite the creative chain of Indian advertising industry and aid business recovery.
