The response of the event was way beyond our expectations," Saleem Khan Tanoli, chief executive officer of Fakt Exhibitions, told the media.

"More than 550 companies from 35 countries, including Germany, Italy, UK, USA, China and Switzerland, participated in the exhibition, which was a record participation," Tanoli said.  Visitors to the expo represented buyers from department stores, retail chains, and independent retailers, wholesalers, trading houses, agents, importers and more.
