The 66th All India Textile Conference
Apr '10
The Textile Association (India), Karnataka Unit is hosting the '66th All India Textile Conference 'on 28 and 29 January, 2011 on the theme “Expanding Sustainable Limits to India's Positioning in Global Textiles and Clothing”.

Karnataka is a major centre for Silk and Garment industries. It was also a good textile centre with huge mills; however, in recent years the number of large textile mills in Karnataka has reduced drastically. The Garment Industry which was concentrating in Bangalore and to a small extent in Bellary started spreading across Karnataka. The Textile industry has been asking for textile parks on the lines of IT parks. In July 2008 the Karnataka Government proposed to establish 11 Textile Parks to give a boost to textile industry in the State. With the new policy of the state government to make the state again a textile hub, the 66th All India Textile Conference at Bangalore is sure to help the industry and the country.

Bangalore is one of the fastest growing cities in the world with over 80 lakh people from different parts of the country settled happily. Bangalore is home to some of the most well-recognized colleges and research institutions in India. Numerous public sector heavy industries, software companies, aerospace, telecommunications, and defence organisations are located in the city. The sylvan surroundings of Bangalore with great National Parks, the city with beautiful parks, avenues, multistoried multiplexes and historical monuments has made Bangalore a most loved city in the world. Bangalore has earned the sobriquets "Silicon Valley of India", "Pub Capital of India, and City of Gardens among others. Bangalore enjoys a pleasant climate right through the year. In summer the maximum and minimum temperatures hover between 36°C and 20°C, while in winter the temperatures range between 27°C and 17°C.

Karnataka is hosting the All India Textile Conference after a gap of 40 years. We need support from all in the industry to make this conference a grand success. We invite sponsors for various events. With the support of all of you, we would be able to organize a useful conference that can help expanding the sustainable limits of the Indian Textile and Garment Industries and make them strong in the competitive global environment.
