More than 700 multi-brand outlets (MBO) and retaile chain stores attended the 10th edition of a trade fair organised by the Apparel Manufacturers of India (AMI) in Chennai. About 111 brands participated in the event to showcase their upcoming spring summer 2017 collections. Visiting retailers placed orders worth more than Rs 500 million at the show.

The trade fair by AMI, a group of leading apparel manufacturers and traders, was a three-day event that took place in the presence of leading manufacturers and traders of readymade and unstitched garments of men, women and kids.

"We are very glad with the response we have received at our fair this time in Chennai. We had nearly 700 MBOs and retail chain stores attending our event and discussing the industry growth trends. We look forward to organise a garment conclave at a much higher scale and take the trade fairs across different cities. We want AMI to be a platform where members act as catalyst for each other's growth," said Nikhil Furia, key organiser, AMI.

Retailers like T Natarajan of Ram Silks, Pondicherry; the purchase team of Pothys; L Raveendran of S Nallaperumel & Sons, Nagercoil; Prabhuram, purchase head of Arrs Silks, Salem; Sudhakar from Hi Style; Ram, the sole buying agent for Sarvana Stores; Das of Nalli Silks and purchase manager of RMKV were present at the event, said the organiser in a press release.

AMI has already conducted 9 fairs in Kochi, Chennai and Hyderabad and for its 10th fair, it reached out to more than 3500 retailers, MBO’s and chain stores across Tamil Nadu.

The association kicked off their first exhibition in January 2015 with the aim of bridging the gap between retailers, agents and suppliers. Its core purpose is 'to grow together' and build a strong network for mutual growth and it believes that entrepreneurs can easily make their dreams a reality if each one helped other, enough to achieve their goals.
