30th edition, 2000 exhibitors from 28 states of India, 97,000 sq. mtrs covered space, 6,000 buyers from 30 countries, more than 850 product lines, styles and designs, more than 350 buying agents etc. will be the distinctive features of the Indian Handicrafts & Gifts Fair [Autumn] 2010 presented by Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts [ EPCH ] at India Expo Centre & Mart, Greater Noida, Expressway in the NCR Delhi from 17th to 20th October, 2010.

Unlike other fairs held in various parts of the world, this fair is unique as it has only Indian participation for display with buyers from developed and developing nations visiting and seeking supplies of wide and varied range of products from India to cater to all segment of consumers in their country.

Specialty of this fair is that the products on display are of all quality and variety. Buyers can select products for meeting the requirement of high end consumers, middle end consumers and mass and low end consumers. Another unique feature of Indian product range is that they are still hand crafted and machines are used only for finishing purposes. This is the reasons that India does not cater to buyers seeking supply of one typical product in thousand and millions. India is still has the distinction of exclusivity in terms of each product, each design, colours and raw material base.

Indian products are eco-friendly as most of the raw material used is natural and not chemically made and more over the dye and colours used are also natural vegetable dyes rather than chemical dyes.

Products on display will range from gifts items, decorative, curious, utility items like houseware, homeware, kitchenware, bathroom ware, garments, dresses, furnishing, fabrics, flooring, decorative lightings, cutlery, crockery, furniture accessories, fashion items, jewellery and accessories etc. The products are made out of raw material base like wood, metal, cane & bamboo, textiles, natural fibres, artificial fibres, wool, silk, jute, coir, stones, animal bye products, terracotta and lacquer etc.

Journalists representing trade magazines from countries of Central Asia, Latin America, Africa and ASEAN regions will be visiting the Handicrafts & Gifts Fair to see the range and quality of products on display and carry back stories to be published in the subsequent issues. In addition to overseas buyers, representative of buying houses, buying agents, importers and wholesalers from America and Europe will also be visiting the fair.

Indian Handicrafts & Gifts Fair has already acquired the reputation of one stop sourcing amongst the overseas buying community and most effective marketing medium amongst Indian exporting community. It is actually a MECCA both for buyers and for exporters.

The 30th edition of IHGF will enable Indian companies to obtain additional orders for exports during the forthcoming year.

The Handicrafts exports during the 2009-10 amounted to Rs. 8178 crores as against Rs. 8183 crores in the previous year. Export had actually increased by 6.55% in rupee terms. During these six months period of the year 2010-11, handicrafts exports have been of the order of Rs. 4753 crore as against Rs. 4075 crore in the previous year. During this six months period, the export have risen by 17% over the last year.

Taking into the present trend of exports, it is expected that the total exports during the year 2010-11 will be much more than the previous years.
