The coronavirus pandemic is causing chaos with business planning. As a result, Busworld India has been postponed until 6 to 8 October 2020 in Bengalaru (Bangalore) at the International Exhibition Centre.
India is a massive market that is deeply concerned about congestion and pollution in urban centres. The country has introduced Bharat VI engine emission standards that are directly comparable with Euro VI. Although engines are technically more complicated there are benefits in superior fuel consumption, lower noise levels and very clean emissions.
Over the last decade there has been rapid development of more modern and passenger friendly urban buses including those with electric drive. A network of major highways has led to the introduction of luxury coaches which are often operated around the clock.
A joint statement issued by Busworld International and Messe Frankfurt India said: “As organisers, we want to ensure that the event optimally serves its objectives, when the industry can unreservedly come together for knowledge and technical exchange. We have been in constant dialogue with industry players who are strongly in favour of this decision. The environment has to be conducive for business – and more importantly for the health of our exhibitors, visitors, employees and all stakeholders.”
We will bring you more information about Busworld India in the next edition of the Busworld Times.
