The response to the launch was overwhelming as the invitees and a clutch of exhibitors from Taiwan and Europe even confirmed their participation at INDIAPLAST 2019 while and others who could not participate in the trade fair for some reason assured that they would make it a point to visit it. Not surprisingly, the organisers were delighted to have more than met their objective with regards to INDIAPLAST 2019.
