Pradeep Deviah and Associates Pvt. Ltd. (PDAPL) is an entrepreneurial success story of modern India’s new-age business models. In the 1990s, when there was a rapid expansion in all areas of the economy, PDAPL saw the need and pioneered a service platform that could promote correlation among niche industry ecosystems and communities. PDAPL is a cohesive force of four divisions: Trade Fairs (PDATF), Trade Media (PDATM), Trade Directories (PDATD) and Events (PDAE).
