The product categories to be displayed at the event include fibre, yarn, suiting and shirting fabrics, ladies wear and dress materials, knits, home textiles and sheeting, denim, fashion fabrics, khadi and handlooms and sustainable and eco-textiles among others.
About 13,000 buyers, comprising 10,000 domestic and 3,000 international visitors are expected to attend the event. The overseas visitors are likely to turn up from US, Europe, China, Korea, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Turkey, Middle East and Latin America.
The event jointly organised by K and D Itmach Expositions and Spinners Association, is expected to get a response from the entire textile value chain including fashion and retail. It will play the role of a facilitator to generate high volumes of business, enquiries and partnerships. This in turn will stimulate sourcing and discovery of new supply chain partners.
“We envisage the idea of meeting industry needs and promoting Gujarat as the global textiles sourcing hub. The exhibitors and visitors will get a chance to discover market opportunities, collaborate with new partners and prosper in the global marketplace,” said Dr Bharat Boghara, president, Spinners Association of Gujarat.
The organisers of the exhibition also expect participation from leading suppliers, brands, buyers and media. The ITS exhibition will be the platform to converge all the supply chain partners for a three-day event at the outskirts of Ahmedabad in Gandhinagar.
“Gujarat contributes to over 30 percent of India’s textile production and has presence of entire textile value chain. Moreover, it is the largest cotton, polyester and denim producer. Gujarat is the largest investment destination and is home to well-known textile brands,” added Boghara regarding the choice of the venue. (KD)
