GSSE debut gets green signals all the way!

Organized by Virgo Communications & Exhibitions, Global Stainless Steel Expo is a ‘must-attend’ event for rail and metro sector stakeholders; a focused, international B2B exhibition-cum-conference powered by Jindal Stainless to be held at Jio World Centre, BKC, Mumbai on March 22-24, 2022

2022 seems off to a great start where the rail sector is concerned; it seems to be a very ‘Happy New Year’ with the inaugural edition of an extremely relevant new trade expo  set to make a strong impact in the first quarter itself! Yes, rail and metro sector stakeholders can look forward to exciting business and networking opportunities at the Global Stainless Steel Expo (GSSE). Launched by the reputed tradeshow organizers, Virgo Communications & Exhibitions, their latest offering, which is quite important for the rail industry, will be held at Jio World Centre, BKC, Mumbai from March 22-24, 2022. 

The 3-day international event, which is on the fast track towards an immensely successful debut considering the leading industry brands and associations participating, has been envisaged as a dedicated international B2B exhibition-cum-conference that will be providing a single-point source, an exclusive platform where all the stainless steel stakeholders – manufacturers, buyers, influencers, regulators, various industry associations and media – from across the globe can converge. 

What makes GSSE 2022 a must-attend event for rail and metro sector players is the fact that stainless steel has been, continues to be and will remain a key element in the manufacturing of the passenger and freight coaches (including wheels, axles, bearings and motors), the rails they run on, most of the stations they arrive at (from roofs to the framework, interiors and exteriors) and much, much more. 

In fact, with certain designs having proven up to 40% lighter in weight resulting in multiple benefits including reduced fuel consumption, there has been a visible shift towards ‘all stainless steel coaches’ since the new millennium began. The rising trend is moving forward at a very high speed as each year passes. It is more than evident that stainless steel is the material of the future for all sectors, with rail being a key demand driver and one of the largest consumers. Therefore, every single stakeholder involved has much to gain from attending this landmark sourcing event.

Other participants include Aperam, Rimjhim Stainless, Tubacex, Synergy Steel, Chandan Steel, Ambica Steel, Rajputana Stainless, Divine Tubes, Scoda Tubes, Welspun, Balaji Niryaat, Suncity, Shiv Ganga, Vizinox, Avtar Steels, Phoenix Foils, Moonlight, Navbharat Tubes, Salem SS Suppliers, Hisar Metal, Shree Tubes, Panchratan Steels, Quality Foils, Maiden Forgings, Moonlight Tubes, Shree Ramdev, Veritas Stainless, Alok Ingots, ASB Tubes, Vashisht Alloys, Stainless Bazaar and many others.
