3-day show to be largest textile sourcing event in South Asia
Gandhinagar, the capital of Gujarat is all geared up for a grand show in the form of Indian Textile Sourcing (ITS) exhibition (www.ITSExhibition.com) which is scheduled to take place from February 16 to 18, 2017.
With an exhibition area spreading over three halls, the venue is expecting more than 350 exhibitors from all over India and world for the grand gala. The exhibition plans to display the entire range of textile raw materials with distinctive supply chain for cotton, polyester etc.
The show will be the largest textile sourcing event in South Asia covering textile raw materials to finished products. It also expects response from the entire value chain including fashion and retail. It will play the role of a facilitator to generate high volumes of business, enquiries and partnerships.
This in turn will stimulate sourcing as well as discovery of new supply chain partners. The exhibition’s organisers are looking forward to participation from leading suppliers, brands, buyers and the media.
The ITS exhibition will be the platform to converge all the supply chain partners for the three-day extravaganza on the outskirts of the erstwhile Manchester of the East, Ahmedabad, or Gandhinagar to be precise.
"We welcome the idea of meeting industry needs and promoting Gujarat as the Global Textiles Sourcing hub," said Dr Bharat Boghara, President of Spinners Association of Gujarat.
The exhibition anticipates participation by 13,000 buyers in all, comprising 10,000 domestic and 3,000 international visitors. Overseas visitors are expected to turn up from USA, EU, China, Korea, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Turkey, Middle East and Latin America.
When queried about the choice of venue, Dr Boghara said, "Gujarat contributes to over 30% of India's textile production and has presence of entire textile value chain, being the largest cotton, polyester and denim producer”.
In addition, Gujarat is the largest investment destination and is home to well-known textile brands," he said. "Exhibitors and visitors will get a chance to discover market opportunities, collaborate with new partners and prosper in the global market place," Dr Boghara added. Product categories include fibre, yarn, suiting and shirting fabrics, ladies wear & dress materials, knits, home textiles, sheeting, denim, fashion fabrics, khadi, handlooms, sustainable and eco-textiles.
