Textiles India 2017, to be held in Gandhinagar, Gujarat from June 30-July 2, 2017, would be a global trade event. It is already being termed as the biggest textile event in the history of India. The exhibition, to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, will showcase India’s strength in textiles and apparel value chain from fibre to fashion.

At the exhibition, manufacturers, exporters and other stakeholders from the textile industry will showcase their products to international buyers, expected from at least 60 countries, Puneet Agarwal, joint secretary, ministry of textiles, told media persons in Bengaluru.

Around 30 countries are likely to display their products at the fair, making it a global trade event. “Seven international conferences, 24 round-table conferences, country and state sessions, business to business, business to government and government to government meetings will be held during the three-day exhibition,” Agarwal said.

“There will be round-table conferences, fashion show, and theme pavilions of partner states Assam, Andhra Pradesh, Jharkhand and Maharashtra with focus on Gujarat,” he added.

The three day event will include global conference on the last day with six themes, to be chaired by concerned Union ministers and the valedictory session presided over by the Union finance minister. Over 33 round-tables will be held on issues of concern for the various segments of textiles and handicrafts on the second day i.e., July 1, with prominent international speakers and industry leaders.
