CMAI, AEPC & Textile Institute extend support to InDIGO
Nov '13
InDIGO, organized by Denim Club India, has been creating history since past two years by being Asia’s One and Only Denim B2B Expo. After the phenomenal success of the first two editions of the event, the denim specific trade exhibition is all set to enter a new phase with its third edition in the coming year, commencing on the 15th January 2014, spanning over three days till 17th January 2014 at Expocentre, Sector 62, Noida.

The eminent textile bodies in India as well as internationally, have extended their official support to the Denim Club for organizing the third edition of the flagship denim event, InDIGO. This support is indicative of the acceptance and appreciation of the Denim Club India initiative by all sectors of the industry, not only from India but abroad.

The support extended by these bodies to the DCI initiative will bring the denim industry in sharp focus and will help improve access to reach out to the large fraternity of professionals engaged in this fast emerging industry. The association of these organizations with InDIGO will act as a catalyst of change and the driving force for the growth and development of the Indian textile and denim sector as a whole.

Mr. R. Dudeja, Founder, Denim Club India, said, "Our event speaks for itself. InDIGO has evolved into a much larger platform now by the support from these renowned organizations. With Fiber2fashion as our official event partner, and the rising recognition from the industry associations like CMAI, AEPC and The Textile Institute, UK, this year’s InDIGO is going to create a new history and establish a new benchmark for itself.”

InDIGO-3 distinguishes itself from other trade shows in Asia in the fashion and textile expo scenario by virtue of having a specific focus on denim, and by its comprehensive coverage of the entire denim supply chain. InDIGO-3 also promises to be the gateway to the huge Indian market, for all international denim manufacturers and suppliers.

The Clothing Manufacturers Association Of India (CMAI), currently headed by Mr. Rahul Mehta as its President, is the pioneer and most representative association of the Indian apparel industry for over four decades, with a membership base of over 20,000 companies. CMAI is the only Indian Association that represents the entire Indian Apparel Industry & Trade on prestigious international forums such as International Apparel Federation headquartered in Netherlands and Asian Apparel Federation headquartered in China.

Incorporated in 1978, AEPC India, currently headed by Padma Shri Dr. A Sakthivel as its Chairman, is the official body of apparel exporters in India that provides invaluable assistance to Indian exporters as well as importers/international buyers who choose India as their preferred sourcing destination for garments.
