The 12th edition of GarFab-TX and concurrent shows Texma & Job Workers Fair has been announced. It will be held at the Surat International Exhibition & Convention Centre (SIECC) in Surat from May 15-17, 2015. GarFab-TX is the largest garment & textiles technology show in Western India.

Surat is one of the largest centres for synthetics in the country with over 700,000 looms and 100,000 embroidery machines. There are many process houses catering to the ever-growing needs of the industry.
