The 33rd India Carpet Expo is a boost for the cultural heritage of Indian handmade carpets and other floor coverings, and the weaving skills of their makers, amongst visiting overseas carpet buyers. The ongoing expo organised by the Carpet Export Promotion Council (CEPC) is a sourcing platform for carpet buyers from various parts of the world.

The expo is an ideal platform for international carpet buyers, buying houses, buying agents and architects to meet with and establish long-term business relationships with Indian carpet manufacturers and exporters. The expo inaugurated by Union Textiles Minister Smriti Irani, will conclude on March 30, 2017.

"This exhibition and buyer-seller meet will be the first step in taking Indian exports of handmade carpets to greater heights," said CEPC chairman Mahavir Pratap Sharma adding that CEPC is confident that the expo will generate good business.

Around 400 carpet importers from 55 countries, mainly from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Chile, Germany, Mexico, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey, UK and the US are visiting the expo. For the first time, the expo has buyers from countries like Bulgaria, Israel, Malaysia, Mauritius, Taiwan, Zimbabwe, Vietnam, Serbia and Hungary.

India Carpet Expo is one of the largest handmade carpet fairs in Asia with a unique platform for the buyers from all over the globe to source the best handmade carpets, rugs and other floor coverings under one roof. It has become a famous destination for handmade carpets across the globe. India's ability in adapting to any type of design, colour, quality and size as per the carpet buyer's specification has made it a household name in international market. (RR)
