The recently announced budget may have been a big disappointment for the garment industry, but the mood at both fairs – IIGF and GTE 2018, just concluded in Delhi – showed positivity and vibrancy all around. During the IIGF, Team Apparel Online met some interesting and different level of buyers who were of the view that “there is no magic stick, but one has to consistently improve upon one’s own strength.” The edition saw some interesting seminars too.
The technology experts at the GTE 2018 that Team AO spoke to were also of the opinion that installation of CAD, and use of advance stitching machines and the value adding machines were dominating and was priority of many medium-level garment manufacturers. A big chunk of visiting garment manufacturers shared that they are expanding too with new product categories and new markets. Apparel 4.0 conference was also being organized at this event.
Also covered in the magazine is Heimtextil Frankfurt 2018, the fair considered as the ‘Mecca of Textile Exhibitions’. The strong presence of 390 Indian companies showcased at the Indian pavilion represented the second largest contingent at the event after China. The fair saw the convergence of 2,975 exhibitors from more than 60 countries, displaying their latest developments in fabric and home furnishing.
