“Even the number of visitors was not affected and we were able to maintain it at the same level as that of last year’s,” said Mr P. Krishnamurthy, CEO & Executive Director, S S Textile Media (Pvt) Ltd, organizers of the events. A total of 124 exhibitors, besides a separate Chinese pavilion, and 3,154 visitors from all over the country besides countries like Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, UAE, France, Spain, Brazil, UK, etc. attended the show.
Exhibiting companies, once again, presented a top-class range of textile products to highly qualified trade visitors from all over the world. The show was therefore able to further develop its position as India’s leading event and business barometer for the textiles and accessories industry. F&A Show stands for innovation and quality and attracts a highly international trade audience.
Exhibitors again praised the event for the high quality and number of visitors, and contact with potential customers at their stands. The quota of visitors from top management was very high; more than every fourth visitor belonged to the management of a company or was the owner of a company. Over two-thirds of all exhibitors were able to fully or largely reach their target groups at the F&A Trade Show 2013, and the other one third at least partially. Besides approaching new markets, important aims of exhibiting were attracting new customers, product presentation and reuniting with old customer.
Mr Dhrub T. Panda, Textile Designer, Gayatri Design Studio, Mumbai, said: “A lot of opportunities opened up for us. The show has been very good with a lot of manufacturers and exporters evincing keen interest in our activities.”
Mr Nitin Poddar, Director, Ginni Spectra Pvt. Ltd., Jaipur, said: “Yes, we were able to meet new customers at the show. We had enquiries from even places like Karur, Chennai and Delhi.”
Mr Y. K. Jhamb, Director and V. P. Marketing, Mynah Industries Limited, Bangalore, said: “The facilities at the exhibition were good with an international feel. We did get new buyers and were able to have that initial interaction, which we hope will materialize into business very soon.”
Mr S. Ramesh Murthy, Marketing manager - RMG, Premier Spg. & Wvg. Mills Pvt Ltd., Hosur, said: “The visitors who came to our stall were genuinely interested in our line of products. We were able to meet top quality buyers.” He was also very appreciative of the changed venue, even though it was a last minute decision.
