Ajay Tamta, the minister of state for textiles will inaugurate the fair at New Delhi.
The four-day fair will primarily cover the Autumn/Winter season of European Union, US and other western markets. A total of 294 exporters from 11 states namely Gujarat, Haryana, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, New Delhi, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal will participate in the fair. They will showcase women’s wear, accessories, kid’s wear and menswear.
"IIGF is India’s largest garment exhibition which has been successfully in providing a marketing platform to small and medium exporters to showcase their latest garment and fashion accessories trends to the international buyers and helping them to leverage brand India across the globe," said HKL Magu, chairman, Apparel Export Promotion Council, organiser of the fair.
"The fair is happening at a time when the industry is facing lot of challenges both domestically and globally but I am sure that with a large buyer base IIGF will be able to turn things around for Indian apparel exporters. In the last fair held at Ahmedabad, the response was quite encouraging and this year we are looking forward towards capitalising on the momentum built during the Ahmedabad fair," added Magu.
"The 60th IIGF assumes greater importance as more than 2000 international buyers and buying houses will participate in the fair, this year. IIGF is known for generating high value business and I am quite sure that IIGF will help the industry in influencing the buyer sentiments and demonstrating our product strengths," said Lalit Thukral, chairman, exhibition advisory committee, IIGF said.
Hosting fashion shows, the fair will exhibit collections for business developments. The B2B fair will be held in association with International Garment Fair Association and four major garment exporters' associations namely Apparel Exporters & Manufacturers Association, Garment Exporters Association, The Clothing Manufacturers Association of India and Garment Exporters of Rajasthan.
