Huge crowds and on-the-spot signing of purchase contracts were the order of the day at ITMACH India 2014 held in Gandhinagar earlier this month, say the organisers of the textile technology fair.

The four-day event held from December 10-13, 2014 was the first focused textile machinery exhibition in the Ahmedabad region at a brand-new, state-of-the-art exhibition centre in Gandhinagar.

The international textile machinery exhibition hosted around 200 exhibitors and 21,487 visitors during the four days of the show.

Exhibitors said they were satisfied with the quality of visitors and investment enquiries, as the show attracted serious visitors and decision makers from the textile industry, from across the country.

International visitors from Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Nigeria, and Pakistan were also seen at the trade fair.

According to ITMACH organisers, the success of ITMACH India 2014 establishes the need of a large textile machinery exhibition beyond Mumbai.

Saurabhbhai Patel, Minister of Finance, Govt of Gujarat said, "Gujarat is moving towards becoming the textile manufacturing hub in India and at such a time, an exhibition like ITMACH India is very much the need of the hour.

“We hope that ITMACH India will be an annual event in Gandhinagar's Exhibition Centre and I hope to see ITMACH India grow from one hall today to several in the next one year, with full support of the state government," he added.

According to an exhibitor, Ramesh Brahmbhatt of Yamuna Machine Works Ltd, “ITMACH India 2014 was a very well organised show. We are happy to be here, to meet existing customers and some new customers too.”

A similar feedback was received from Sagar Group. The company represents a large number of international and Indian textile machinery makers.

Varishensagar Shah from Sagar stated, “We got a lot of leads at the show, while also meeting our existing clients. With the industry in investment mode, this is the right time and place to organise a machinery show.”

Another exhibitor Hemant Shah of Manisha Overseas said, “Those visiting the show were serious about doing business. This was a win-win show for both exhibitors and visitors.”

“We had not expected an international class show when we decided to participate in ITMACH India. We were able to meet new, serious clients during the event,” Natascha Meier, head, Sales & Marketing, Graf Group said.

While some exhibitors were able to clinch business deals at the show, almost all the exhibitors were confident of bagging orders as a result of the show. (AR)
