Gifts World Expo is an iconic show for corporate gifting solutions. But tell us what makes Gifts World Expo stand out above other similar fairs?
GWE is an iconic fair for a reason: It is managed by MEX Exhibitions, a renowned name in the business which has launched several industry-leading shows in India and abroad. Based on world-class standards, each event is critically micro-managed and offers an incredible platform to both exhibitors and visitors alike to make the best of business opportunities at the show.
What differentiates GWE immediately from other shows is that it has grown to become one of the biggest shows on corporate gifting in India and for this reason alone it has caught the attention of important industry representatives from the Government and other concerned bodies who have felicitated the show to lend their support.
You can find most of the leading companies and brands from Pan India exhibiting at the show each year which makes the product exhibit very exciting. Because the show is widely publicized and has several media channels attending it, exhibiting companies prefer to launch their new products at the show.
