Gerhard Gerritzen, Deputy Managing Director, MesseMuenchen GmbH talks exclusively to Asian Ceramics (www.asianceramics.com) about the MMI/Unifair tie-up

The situation of having two annual exhibitions for the ceramics industry in Ahmedabad was extremely unsatisfactory for exhibitors and visitors alike. So at the request of several customers, we reached out to our competitor and quickly found a common basis for collaborating with one another.


We are absolutely convinced that we have achieved more than "1 + 1 = 2" with the co-location solution of "two shows—one date". Now the important Indian ceramics market has THE central marketplace—a win-win situation for everyone involved” says MrGerritzen.


"I have great expectation for the co-location cooperation between UNIFAIR and MMI INDIA regarding CERAMICS ASIA and INDIAN CERAMICS in 2016.
