The role Infrastructure can play in that growth story cannot be stressed enough, especially in India and this fact reflects in the projected investment in the infrastructure sector in the 12th plan period (2012-17), which is pegged at US$ 100 billion.
Given these facts, it is absolutely essential for the construction and construction equipment industry to work closely with all stakeholders including government agencies, and events like EXCON can go a long way in facilitating that."

Apart from the participation of major equipment renting companies, and leasing and finance companies that offer on the spot loans, visitors can benefit by benchmarking product features of different makes, interacting about their requirements with technical heads, and negotiating deals with chief executives. The event also acts as a forum to position India as an outsourcing destination for components, aggregates and equipment.
