Mumbai is the financial, commercial and entertainment capital of India. It is also one of the world’s top ten centres of commerce in terms of global financial flow, generating 6.16% of India’s GDP and accounting for 25% of industrial output, 70% of maritime trade in India (Mumbai Port Trust and JNPT), and 70% of capital transactions to India’s economy. The city houses important financial institutions such as the Reserve Bank of India, the Bombay Stock Exchange, the National Stock Exchange of India, the SEBI and the corporate headquarters of numerous Indian companies and multinational corporations. It is also home to some of India’s premier scientific and nuclear institutes like Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Nuclear Power Corporation of India, Indian Rare Earths, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Atomic Energy Regulatory Board, Atomic Energy Commission of India, and the Department of Atomic Energy. The city also houses India’s Hindi (Bollywood) and Marathi cinema industries. Mumbai’s business opportunities, as well as its potential to offer a higher standard of living, attract migrants from all over India, making the city a melting pot of many communities and cultures.
UBM Allworld, the largest event organizer in India with 300 staff in 4 offices, is launching the show in Mumbai in September following a great deal of market research within the hospitality industry in India. September is after the monsoon season when the weather starts to improve but crucially is still not a tourist season. This ensures that the HORECA buyers, which are such a key target of our audience, will be free to attend the event. We’ve specifically chosen to base the show in Mumbai as it is still the most important port in India and one of the leading economic centres, inevitably this ensures that we can invite the right types of importers to the show.

The Indian Food brands are now rapidly increasingly finding prime shelf space in the retail chains across the US and Europe.
