To encourage building global partnerships with India, EEPC India organizes International Engineering Sourcing Show (IESS), the largest display of engineering products and services every year. This is recognized as the only sourcing event in India – showcasing the latest technologies and a preferred meeting place for global buyers & sellers. This show is also important to encourage foreign investments in line with the newly initiated “Make in India” campaign, by Government of India.

Keeping ‘Engineering the Future’ as the motto, EEPC India serves as the reference point for the Indian engineering industry and the international business community in its efforts towards establishing India as a major engineering hub in the future.
