The 7th edition of HGH India witnessed 14 per cent rise in the number of visitors over last year with over 34,000 visitors, primarily retailers, distributors and institutional buyers from 480 cities and towns across India attending the 3-day trade show to find innovations, source home products for their business and discover the upcoming home fashion trends.

Over 600 brands and manufacturers from 30 countries unveiled their innovations and new collections at HGH India, either directly or through their Indian partners. HGH India 2018 reflected the rising interest in integrated approach to home textile, home decor and houseware as they continued to move towards a single lifestyle category called Home. Buyers and visitors showed interest in new and trendy products along with offerings from international players. The organisers’ effort to launch the new concept of Indian Heritage products with an appeal for handicrafts, jute, coir and khadi to modern consumers attracted keen attention.

"We are very happy with the outcome of HGH India, especially this year. I feel that both our organisations’ relationship will only continue to evolve further in the years ahead. We have over thirty brands exhibiting this year which is a big step forward for us, and I foresee this only growing further next year as well. I must also mention that I am very impressed with the Trends Pavilion this year. In fact, we have incorporated some of these trends into our products that are on display. I look forward to HGH India 2019," Keval Mehta, general secretary- Atco (All India Wallpaper Coverings Association), said.

"We have been with HGH India since its first year, and are thus overjoyed to be part of the show again. The response to our offerings has been great on all three days. Each year, we look forward to meet retailers and consumers from different regions, cities and towns of India every year and in my opinion, this is the perfect platform to achieve the same. I believe that this industry is still evolving and therefore, I am thankful to HGH India for consistently providing us the opportunity to showcase our new concepts and merchandise to strengthen our rapport with visitors on all three days of the trade show," Rajesh Mahajan, chairman, Maspar, said.

The trade show saw some of the biggest brands like Welspun, Bombay Dyeing and Marshal launch their new products which peaked the buyer's interests. It also witnessed international participation showcasing products from Turkey, German, Italy, UK, France, Greece, US, Taiwan, Thailand, Korea, China, Russia, Poland, Japan, Belgium, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and many others.

"HGH India continues to develop as a trade show for the Indian home products market but with International standards. It is a great business platform for Indian buyers, retailers, manufacturers and brands to connect and mutually grow their respective business and also the industry in its entirety. With the increasing buying power and refined sensibilities of the Indian market, we hope that the home products industry witnesses' manifold growth and HGH India continue to be an important partner in this journey. I am happy that we could attract not only urban visitors but also visitors from interior cities and towns of India. Home products are a desire and a necessity all over the country," Arun Roongta, managing director, HGH India, said.

The next edition of HGH India is scheduled from July2-4, 2019 in Mumbai. (RR)
