Jan '10
The India International Garment Fair (IIGF) hosted by the Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC), held between January 20 and 22, 2010 concluded on a successful note. IIGF attracted a record number of 1,314 visitors from over 60 countries and has raised an air of optimism over the prospects in 2010 of the over US $10 billion per year export sector.

The event was attended by around 721 buyers from 667 companies and 593 buying agents from 412 companies. The turnout of buyers was up 87 percent this year as compared to 42nd IIGF autumn/winter held last year. There was a 54 percent increase in the number of buying agents registered at the 44th IIGF. Business worth US $9.67 million was either booked or negotiated, leading to a 62 percent hike as compared to the orders registered at last year's IIGF.

Fibre2fashion the globally renowned textile, apparel and fashion portal took part in the IIGF for the third time and received overwhelming response from visitors and exhibitors alike, who thronged the stall of fibre2fashion in droves. Among many featured services promoted by Fibre2fashion, clothing manufacturers and buyers were excited and eager to either participate or visit the on-line “International Apparel Expo – 2010” which is being hosted by Fibre2fashion from March 1 to April 30, 2010.

Speaking about the on-line Apparel Expo, Mr Micheal Kiu, merchandiser from the Malaysia based Eve Apparels Asia Pacific said, “I will definitely visit the on-line Apparel Expo regularly during the entire duration of the event and I think by hosting the on-line Apparel trade fair, Fibre2fashion has leapfrogged in to the next generation of trade fairs”.

Another big buyer from Germany who regularly visits trade-fairs across the world waxed eloquently about the Apparel Expo by saying that, “This on-line expo gives him the opportunity to preview samples from different companies and diverse countries and at the same time interact real-time with exhibitors, without moving an inch from his office and help him save money and above all the most precious commodity today; time.”

Recounting his experiences at the IIGF, Mr Jigar Shelat, National Sales Manager at Fibre2fashion said, “IIGF has organised the fair wonderfully and lived up to expectations of the exhibitors, along with which, we are overwhelmed by the sheer number of visitor's who visited our stall and displayed keen interest in the services offered by Fibre2fashion, particularly the on-line Apparel Expo”.
