EVERYTHING FOR MARBLE-WORKING, QUARRYING AND MINING: TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATIONS ON SHOW IN IRAN
After a gap of four years, the most important event in Iran for the sector specialising in machinery for site-work, quarrying and mining, building materials, and the marble and natural stone industry, has returned to the nation’s capital.
The name of the fair is IranConMin 2014, and it is due to take place at the Teheran Permanent Fairground from October 17th to 20th.
Italy will be present at the event with a group of companies representing the very best of the sector, chosen and organised by the Italian Trade Promotion Agency (ICE).
ICE will be responsible for coordinating this collective of about 22 businesses, which will occupy a display space of around 320 square metres.
The Agency will also have its own special stand in the dedicated Italian pavilion.
The event offers a very interesting commercial opportunity, and an important chance for visitors to explore the top quality and highly specialised technology of the Italian firms, and to create or improve contacts at many levels.
The companies selected by ICE have developed and patented some of the most avant-garde technologies available in the fields of site machinery, construction materials and equipment for mining and quarrying. Also on show will be some of the very best accessories for processing marble and granite, and the latest advances in products such as marble mastics and stuccos.
There will be specially patented and very high-tech machines for cutting marble and granite, chain saws for extracting natural stone, innovative technology for water or sludge treatment, and much, much more.
The IranConMin international exhibition is seen in Iran as the key event for the sector dedicated to site machinery, mining and quarrying equipment, construction materials and the marble and natural stone industry.
The last edition of the fair took place from July 5th to 8th 2010, and saw the participation of 232 exhibitors (112 international and 120 Iranian), 15 different countries, and three national pavilions (China, Italy and Germany).
The total display space covered an area of 15,000 square metres. The exhibition was visited by about 30,000 operators from the sector, and even more are expected at this year’s event.
The trade fair is particularly important for Iran, a country with rich reserves of natural stone, and quarries with significant unexploited potential.
Stone production to date has been almost entirely absorbed by the domestic market. The construction sector plays a leading role in the overall economy and offers some very interesting prospects, given the strong demand for housing, on-going improvements to the country’s infrastructure, and programmes to modernise its industries.
There is therefore enormous interest in acquiring the requisite expertise to improve product quality and enable Iranian operators to enter foreign markets: the sort of know-how that Italian companies can offer.
