Beyond being just an exhibition, ELECRAMA is a premier show of the Indian electrical sector and is the world´s largest confluence of the power transmission and distribution (T&D) community. Held biennially since 1990 in India, the 11th edition ELECRAMA-2014 hosted a total of 970 exhibitors and also attracted more then 100,000 footfalls.
In the last two decades, ELECRAMA as an exhibition has featured the biggest names in the global electrical T&D industry, to whom it serves as a launch vehicle to introduce their latest products and technology. ELECRAMA showcases products and technology through the entire voltage spectrum, from 220 V to 1,200 kV, conforming to global standards and specifications.
A large number of business and technology partnerships are also transacted during the 5-day period giving it a must attend event status amongst global exhibitions. ELECRAMA visitors consist of a wide spectrum of industry stakeholders, offering them an international framework for display, discussions and deliberations. It brings together manufacturers and suppliers to interface with key customer segments like private and public T&D utilities, EPCs, consultants and specifiers, members of the government and policy makers.
It also brings together global thought leaders in the electrical T&D sector, consisting of industry leaders, engineering professionals and technologists, professionals and academia, et al through high power panel discussions, premier conferences, technical workshops, tutorials and seminars held concurrently with the exhibition. ELECRAMA also hosts international diplomatic and trade visitor delegations from various countries and large country pavilions from leading manufacturing nations from around the world.
It is a stellar platform for a world view on technology, best practices, new systems and forecasting the trends in the future of electricity, both from technology and a socio-economic point of view. A high quality thought platform World Utility Summit has been envisaged to bring together the top leadership from utilities globally, to organise under an umbrella platform to share experiences, deliberate and explore solutions on pressing issues in the T&D realm.
