With 85 exhibitors and 4,522 trade visitors, the eight edition of Fabric & Accessories Trade Show 2011, just like the previous ones, has been a huge success. Held from June 3 - 5, 2011 at Gayatri Vihar, Palace Ground, Bangalore, the exhibition has more than doubled in size as well as in exhibitor and visitor numbers ever since its inception in 2004.

Participants were highly satisfied, particularly with the comprehensive range of products on display and with the professional flavor of the F&A Trade Show. The China contingent with its specially earmarked pavilion as well as the one supported by the Office of the Textile Commissioner, Bangalore, as well as visitors who flew in specially from Bangladesh and Sri Lanka as a delegation, and others from the U.K., U.S.A., U.A.E, Hong Kong, Sweden, Russia, Mexico, Germany, Bulgaria, Turkey, the Republic of Seychelles, etc., were some other major highlights of the show.

“We are delighted to be able to report that F&A Trade Show has taken a big step forward in both size and profile. The exhibition has developed into a major quality event for India's fabrics and accessories working industry since its debut seven years ago, and this rapid development corresponds to the fast-paced Indian market for this industry sector,” explains Mr P. Krishnamurthy, CEO, S S Textile Media Pvt Ltd, organizer of the show.

“We want to congratulate our exhibitors and visitors for this success. There was lively trading activity throughout the three exhibition days and the mood was buoyant. The excellent results of this event show that we have been able to design a highly professional industry platform for India's fabrics and apparels industry. A dedicated trade exhibition such as F&A Trade Show is vital for one of India's key sectors in the face of the country's economic growth potential, and the large number of investment projects to cover the ever-increasing consumer demand,” said Krishnamurthy.

For the Indian companies important aims of participating at the F&A Trade Show 2011 were attracting new customers, presentation of new products and networking with industry experts. There were many companies too from outside India, with the majority coming from China. The trade exhibition enabled them to gain new contacts and develop their business relations in the booming Indian market.

Said Ms Cherry Fan, Export Manager, Fujian Zhonghe Marketing Co. Ltd., China: “We got good inquiries with a lot of customers like garment manufacturers and agents showing interest. This is our first time at an exhibition in India and we hope to convert some of the inquiries into orders the next few months. Let's see.”

Mr Pushpendra Tyagi, Vice President, Marketing (Fabrics), Mandhana Industries Ltd., Mumbai, enthusiastically noted that the show was improving with each edition. “The show has been good and has turned out to be a right platform for all kinds of buyers. We were able to create awareness about our company, our new developments, new designs, etc., which were appreciated by buyers. We got a good share of enquiries from buying houses, exporters and international delegations and even buyers from countries like Turkey.”
