The India International Textile Machinery Exhibition Society (IITME) will construct India’s biggest industrial exhibition centre at Gujarat International Finance Tec-City (GIFT) in Gandhinagar district of Gujarat state.
 
The exhibition centre would be constructed in two phases. The first phase would involve construction of 36,000 sq m of area and is expected to be completed by 2014. The work on 104,000 sq m of area for second phase would begin in 2017.
 
The Rs. 5 billion industrial exhibition centre would be developed by IITME and would have facilities to display and give live demonstrations of heavy machinery under one roof.
 
Seema Srivastava, Executive Director of IITME said they are looking forward to tap global exhibitions in various sectors, including textile machinery and chemicals, among others at the exhibition centre.
 
IITME and GIFT City have shortlisted, Shapoorji Pallonji, L&T and a Dubai-based company for allotting the construction work, and they would soon finalize on one of them.
 
Established in 1980, IITME is a non-profit organisation serving the textile and textile engineering industry through international exhibitions. The organization is sponsored and promoted by Textile Machinery Manufacturers' Association (India) (TMMA), Indian Textile Accessories & Machinery Manufacturers' Association (ITAMMA), Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI), Textile Association of India (TAI) and the Bureau of Indian Standards.
