Informa Markets, India's leading B2B exhibitions organiser, has announced the return of World of Concrete (WOC) India, the leading show in the concrete, construction, and Infrastructure domain along with its new offerings for the industry at a press conference themed Connecting India by Concrete: A Journey towards Net Zero. The expo’s 8th edition will be held from 13th to 15th October 2022 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Goregaon East, Mumbai.

The World of Concrete India exhibition and conference draws its legacy from World of Concrete Las Vegas, the largest and oldest Concrete show in the world dedicated to the Construction and Infrastructure Sector. The expo, in collaboration with the Builders Association of India, Water Proofing Association of India, Gujarat Contractors Association seeks to connect the dots between suppliers and buyers and will feature a comprehensive marketplace of materials, equipment, technologies, newest products and tools for the commercial construction, concrete and masonry industries. The event is estimated to attract more than 150+ Exhibitors and 7,000 + Trade visitors over the 3-days.

Dr. Vishal Thombare, Executive Engineer, Dept of Roads, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation said, "We have come with a 5-year Master plan which will run in phases. Mumbai has to undergo major development spurt every few decades because of its coastal line. We are coming up with the state-of-art underwater tunnel in South Mumbai (from Marine Drive to the Worli end of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link). We are developing RCC utility duct on every road, soak pits and holding tanks to overcome monsoon challenges. These developments will increase the life of pavements. Other than these, we have taken multiple measures to ensure efficiency like putting barcodes on barricades, cameras to track live telecast of work, GIS for making payments, road closure map to get alerts on road closures. Solar power will be source of energy for the functioning of cameras. In a first for the country, monopile foundation will be used and India will get to see a first ever tunnel with a diameter of 12.19metres with Saccardo system. Expos like World of Concrete India will create awareness amongst the stakeholders and upgrade them with innovative technologies in this sector."

Amit Bansal, Partner, Financial Advisory and Sector Leader for Infrastructure, Deloitte India informed that the construction Sector is evolving and demands for skilled workforce as well as technology upgrades. The industry needs to invest in manpower training, automation, new construction technology and digitization to service the fast-growing demand for construction services. The way to robust construction industry is to quickly resolve construction disputes. “World of Concrete India Expo 2022 is a platform where the stakeholders along with the Government representatives, can seek solution to faster resolution of construction disputes and attract investments in construction sector.”

Yogesh Mudras, MD, Informa Markets in India, added, “The pandemic has put a spotlight on infrastructure around the globe. Recognised as key drivers of India’s economic growth and employment, we are glad to see some key initiatives by the Government of India such as the Gati Shakti Mission, the National Infrastructure Pipeline, the National Monetisation Plan, and Bharat Mala Project that will place our country amongst the top global three contributors and leapfrog the economy to a global level. We as facilitators are happy to announce that World of Concrete India 2022 will play a key role in bringing the construction and infrastructure industries together and aid the infrastructure industry growth which is slated to touch US$1.4 trillion by 2025.”

Harshad Shah, Chairman, Builders Association of India, stated, “With the large amount of investment in infrastructure construction and housing construction planned by the Central and various State Governments, use of latest technology and materials will be very important. Exhibitions like ‘World of Concrete India’ bring the technology and material to our doorstep and hence we encourage our members to visit ‘World of Concrete India’ instead of we going to various countries or the various factories in India to source our machinery and materials.”
