A Sublime Experience
For kitchen businessmen and professionals, the exhibition at India Kitchen Congress in April this year proved to be a pleasant and fruitful experience. The two-day event, held at Hotel Vivanta by Taj in Bengaluru on the sidelines of the conference, saw exhibitors create a marketplace of components, furniture and complete kitchens.
Some of the key participants were Sleek International, Action Tesa, Style Spa, Biesse, Elenza, Splendour, Pidilite Industries and Kaff Appliances. Overseas companies included Cleaf, 3B Spa, Foster, Domus Line and Sicam.
What made the event unique was the visitor quality. Some 350 businessmen – all involved with the industry as retailers, distributors or manufacturers – walked through the aisles in between conference sessions. In the absence of crowds, the mood was relaxed but discussions were intense. The event returns to Bengaluru on May 23 and 24 next year, at The Lalit Ashok (see more details on page 48-49).
