Taking this into consideration, IndiaMART.com, India's largest online B2B marketplace, for the second time, has decided to become the title sponsor of the third HITEX International Machine Tools Expo 2011 (HIMTEX) show that will be held at Hyderabad International Trade Exposition Centre (HITEX), Hyderabad.

We need to bring our SMEs on the same level as the rest. Like its previous editions, IndiaMART HIMTEX will inspire them to adopt new technologies and international standards, and also provide them with several business opportunities.
