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.
