The EU-India Partnership and Investment Fair (EIPIF 2010) is co-organised by BusinessGlobal.com with the Franchising Association of India (FAI) and presented in partnership with the Project Exports Promotion Council of India (PEPC). EIPIF 2010 provides real exposure for thousands of Indian and European companies at a major international on-line trade fair, enabling potential deals and partnerships and increasing mutual investment and trade opportunities in two of the worldâ€™s largest consumer markets.
This BusinessGlobal.com virtual conference falls within the framework of the Asia-Invest Programme, a European Commission initiative to promote and support business cooperation between European Union (EU) member states and Asia by providing assistance to intermediary business organisations, in order to facilitate mutually beneficial partnerships between enterprises throughout the two regions.
We have designed this event to reduce the costs of â€œgoing globalâ€ for European Union and Indian SMEs. EIPIF 2010, a truly global event, will provide exhibitors and visitors with the opportunity to liaise with distributors, franchisees, franchisors, licensees, licensors, manufacturers, retailers, patent technology specialists, trade associations and other potential partners. This is simply the best and most cost-effective opportunity for European and Indian companies to build sales leads and energise their businesses.
EIPIF 2010 will showcase products, services, technology, and investment opportunities from exhibitors (small, medium and large companies as well as Trade and Government Business Associations) from the EU (Belgium, Germany, Italy and the UK, among others) from India, and from a number of Commonwealth countries. The Fair will cover the following sectors:
ï‚§ Business Services
ï‚§ Capital Products & Services
ï‚§ Construction & Engineering
ï‚§ Environmental Goods & Services
ï‚§ Franchising & Business Opportunities
ï‚§ Information & Communications Technologies
ï‚§ Local Government Services & Environment
