The very first edition of the Yarn Fabric and Accessories (YFA) 2015 held in New Delhi closed its doors with 7,477 buyers walking through the four days of the trade show and which saw around 100 participating exhibitors.

According to a press release, the trade show proved to be a major hit with both, exhibitors as well as buyers, as a majority of suppliers at the show expressed full satisfaction with their participation.

“Most of the buyers too said they were satisfied with their visit to the first of its kind South Asian show,” the press release added.

The fair was inaugurated by Santosh Kumar Gangwar, Textile Minister who said, “YFA Trade Show 2015 has done a great job by bringing entire textile value chain like fibre, yarns, fabric and accessories under one roof.”

Praising the efforts of the organisers, he added, “My doors are always open for organisers with new ideas like this for the upliftment of textile and apparel industry in India.”

The exhibitor list included those from the whole textile value chain like Reliance Industries, Indorama Synthetics, Asahi Kasei Fibres, Amarjothi Spinning Mills, TT Ltd, Madeira India, Garden Silk Mills and many others.

These companies exhibited latest developments in value-added textile products like speciality fibres, multifunctional yarns, embroidery yarn, bamboo fabrics, modal fabrics, metal garment accessories, etc.

Brijesh Jain, vice president, TT Ltd said, “All visitors who visited our stall are relevant and genuine and we have also been able to make new contacts and we will definitely come back for the next edition.”

Akshay Kumar, sales director at Madeira stated, “The response to our products has been unexpected and has exceeded my expectations.”

“We have had quality buyers visiting our stall and going by the response at this edition, we would definitely like to return next year,” he too added.

“Although the show has been held for the first time, we are very satisfied with our presence as on the second day, we did not have time for lunch,” Raj Kapadia, president (sales) at Sanathan Textiles informed.

“Additionally, we also met our old buyers, with whom we stand a chance of reviving business and we will return next year with a bigger stall,” Kapadia remarked.

Among the visitors who visited YFA Trade Show 2015 were senior officials of spinning mills, knitters, weavers, yarn agents, importers, exporters, buying houses, designers, retail chains, etc.

A buyer, Pradeep Kumar, sourcing head at Shree Bharat International said, “My visit to YFA was very fruitful as I got to meet many suppliers of fabrics and garment accessories from across India and also reconnect with a few old suppliers.”

Vikram Jajoo, director, Vaibhav Yarn Pvt. Ltd and an agent for several mills too added, “It was a good experience and this type of event is needed for North India as there are no other shows of this type.” (AR)
