What Exhibitors had to Say:
"The Delhi Machine Tool Expo will help the whole machine tool industry. It has given industries based in this part of the region an opportunity to showcase their products to customers. There was a fair amount of visitors. IMTMA has done a fantastic job. We will participate again."
"The main reason for us to participate was primarily due to the IMTMA brand. We work together with the team that organizes IMTEX. North and west regions of India are industrial hubs. This gives us leverage to participate. The show brought us closer to our customers and we hope that it grows bigger. There is a need to be active in regional shows in addition to IMTEX." - Arun Mahajan, AMT
"After a long time there is a good show in Delhi. I must congratulate IMTMA. They have done a good job. It was well advertised in Ludhiana and other regions in the north. The response on the first day itself was fantastic. Organizing regional shows ensure local participation. There is an enthusiasm in the market. I met a lot of customers." - Indraneel Bhattacharya, Lakshmi Machine Works
"We saw some interesting customers walking into our stall. IMTMA has done a lot of marketing for this event. It was a good initiative by IMTMA to organize a regional show in Delhi. It brought a lot of customers from the states of Punjab and Himachal Pradesh. There is good participation from big OEMs. The show is an opportunity for customers to walk in and see what is happening in the industry, what is the latest in technology and learn about the latest innovations. In this expo we are demonstrating additive manufacturing and 3D printing."
- Sanjay Sangham, Renishaw
"Exhibitions such as these are very good for the industry. Customers get to see many new machines. There is lots of technical information under one roof. The Delhi Machine Tool Expo has been a great platform to understand new advancements in technology happening in the industry. Often we only hear or read about the technology advancements but the demonstrations given at this exhibition has helped us understand the technology and align it with our business."
- K.S. Malik, Honda Cars
"We have a good customer base in the north and the response was much more than what we expected. We met a lot of important people including decision makers. The show has helped us in getting more business. We will definitely come back for this show in future."

Some Quotes from Visitors:
"The show was very well planned, very well laid out and very informative. I saw many things new that I was not aware of. I got exposure to some new technologies which I couldn’t visualize earlier. I am the end consumer of these machines and am trying to purchase certain machines. Usually I keep travelling to a number of nations to purchase but fortunately this time around the show being held in Delhi has saved my travel time. I am looking forward to purchase a few machines."
"These kinds of shows are important. Customers come to know of the various products that are coming up in the market. It increases our engineering knowledge. We are happy to visit the show."
"The expo was very beneficial for the machine tool industry based in northern regions of India. There are a number of small scale industries in the north and this show at Delhi have given them an opportunity to witness many new technologies under one roof. These industries can adopt the new technologies demonstrated at this show."
"The best part of the show is that you have a direct exposure with the people and the industry. We come to see the various technologies coming in to India, the upcoming start-ups, the new things coming into the market, and the various countries that are coming in to India in the various parameters of manufacturing. We were glad to see this all under one roof at the Delhi Machine Tool Expo."
