The 30th India Carpet Expo will be held from October 11 to October 14 this year in Sampurnanand Sanskrit University Ground, at Varanasi, the textiles ministry said in a statement. The expo is being organized by carpet export promotion council (CEPC), set up by the textiles ministry,

This would be the 11th edition of the expo in Varanasi. The prime motive in holding the expo in the major carpet producing belt Varanasi is to provide ‘unique pick and choose’ business opportunity to all overseas carpet buyers.

The participation charges have been fixed at Rs. 4,050- per sq. meter plus service tax. The carpet export promotion council expects more than 400 overseas buyers in the expo.

Kuldeep R. Wattal, Chairman, CEPC is confident that the expo will generate good business.

Over the years, the India carpet expo has established itself as a great sourcing platform for carpet buyers from all over the globe, the statement said. The expo aims to promote the cultural heritage and weaving skills of Indian hand-made carpets and other floor coverings amongst the visiting overseas carpet buyers. It is an ideal platform for international carpet buyers, buying houses, buying agents, architects and Indian carpet manufacturers and exporters to meet each other and establish long-term business relationships.

The expo is one of the largest handmade carpet fairs in Asia, which provides a unique platform under one roof, for buyers to source the best handmade carpets, rugs and floor coverings. (SH)
