The textile engineering exhibition is one of the most awaited business events for textile industry members and will also propagate government schemes and incentives for the textile industry.

With presence of 1,050 exhibitors from 38 countries, spread over 17 chapters and 11 exhibiting halls, the exhibition will see 24 product launches, organisers said. This once in 4 year mega event, will take place from December 3-8, 2016 in Mumbai.

The six-day textile engineering exhibition will have a strong presence and participation from the Central and state governments. Gujarat and Karnataka—two key states having strong presence in textile industry—are participating in the event as state partners.

India is not only a strong market but is also explored as a hub for training and skill development by many neighbouring countries in the field of textile & textile engineering.
