The exhibition was attended by 55,224 business visitors covering an area of 2,50,000 sq.m.

As India’s leading industry association, the CII plays a critical role in boosting India’s inclusive growth and economic development by partnering with government, industry and civil society. In recognition of its outstanding work in business development through exhibitions, the Indian Exhibition Industry Association (IEIA) conferred on CII three awards at a glittering ceremony in Hyderabad on 10th May.
