By Sarah Ann McCay19 August 2012

The second edition of bC India 2013 is already almost fully booked, despite organisers extending the available exhibition space to 150000 m2, almost double the capacity of the debut show, which covered 88000 m2.

JCB, Hyundai, Case, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ashok Leyland, Cifa and Shantui will all exhibit at the show for the first time next year, while other exhibitors find themselves on a waiting list for some sections of the show due to over demand.

bC India 2013 will feature first-time pavilions from Northern Ireland and Japan, while China, France, Great Britain, Italy, Russia, South Korea and Spain will all return with national pavilions.

The Bauma Conexpo Show - bC India, International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles - debuted in Mumbai in 2011, attracting a total of 508 companies from 36 countries and 2,823 visitors from 71 countries.

The second edition of the bC India show takes place February 5 to 8, 2013, at the Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai.

bC India is a joint venture between Messe M√ľnchen International (MMI) and AEM, the North-American Association of Equipment Manufacturers.
