+ India’s Premier Engineering and Technology Platform: IETF 2019 - CII Blog

The Indian engineering industry has grown into an innovative and competitive technological hub, gaining scale and diversity across major sub-sectors. Indian products and services are coveted all over the world not only for their competitiveness, but also for their reliability and quality. The unprecedented flow of capital, technology and expertise has helped India mark its presence in the international market arena.

Many policies have helped unleash the potential of engineering in India, including liberalization and openness, Make in India, Skill India, and Digital India. Today, as technological change and Industry 4.0 are sweeping the engineering sector across the world, India with its immense domestic talent and entrepreneurial capacity is well positioned to capture global leadership. With its services sector already on the ascendance, the ‘servicification of manufacturing’ enjoys a solid foothold in the country.

To drive forward engineering cooperation, CII has been organizing the pathbreaking International Engineering and Technology Fair (IETF) as a biennial flagship event since 1975, a time when economic reforms were far off. In its journey of 44 years, IETF has achieved the status of a comprehensive international business to business (B2B) event. This year, it is to be held between 3rd -5th February, 2019 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

IETF acts as a platform to promote the next generation of industry and helps in delivering excellence and innovation. Be it networking or forging partnerships with the government and industry stakeholders, this event acts as a global hub for sourcing by the industry.

IETF showcases the best of Indian engineering and technology to the world. Today, it focuses on specific segments of the technology, engineering and services sector and a number of focused sector specific shows have been successfully organized over the years as concurrent shows with IETF. Over time, these exhibitions have evolved as strong and dynamic platforms for presenting advanced technologies and innovations from India to the world.

The 2019 edition of IETF features six focused shows and three concurrent events with participation from over 25 countries. In addition to this, the event will also host multiple knowledge sessions and B2B & B2G (business to government) meetings to enable participants to have fruitful discussions.
