With the participation of over 200 companies, Gartex Texprocess India is gearing up for a power-packed edition in New Delhi. The recently announced association with Fabexa will bring fabric manufacturers and suppliers from Gujarat on the show floor to deliver a solid push to the region’s textile and apparel sector.

Following the success of its first-ever Mumbai edition earlier this May, Gartex Texprocess India, the leading B2B platform in the garment and textile machinery, fabrics, accessories, and allied industries, is ready to open the curtains in New Delhi at Pragati Maidan from 4 – 6 August 2022.

Affirming strong support and recognizing the potential impact of Gartex Texprocess India, Upendra Prasad Singh, Secretary, Ministry of Textiles, Government of India, stated, “India is one of the prominent textiles and clothing producing countries in the world. Domestically, it is the second largest employment-providing sector and accounts for 11.4% of India’s global merchandise exports during 2020 – 21 and holds a 4% share of the global trade in textiles and apparel. Gartex Texprocess India New Delhi will provide opportunities for overseas buyers to source their requirements and a platform to domestic exporters, especially SMEs, for expanding their export potential.”

Co-located alongside Denim Show, Fabrics & Trims Show and Screen Print India, the three-day show will converge more than 200 companies to create an extensive display of manufacturing technologies and finished products.

Leading textile and apparel machine manufacturing brands such as Aura, Fabcare, Jaysynth Dyestuff, Wenli, Baba Textile Machinery, Orange-O-Tec and Jack have confirmed their participation at Gartex Texprocess India, while the Denim Show unites leading denim producers of India such as Jindal Worldwide, Arvind, Raymond UCO Denim, LNJ Denim, Siyaram Silk Mills, Kanchan Group and many more under its wing.

Meanwhile, Screen Print India will showcase manufacturing technologies for textile, digital and screen printing from brands such as DCC Print Vision LLP, JN Arora, Konica Minolta, Epson and Green Printing Solutions, among others.

To promote localization in the fabric sector, organizers Messe Frankfurt India and MEX Exhibitions have joined with Fabexa, an arm of Ahmedabad’s nodal textile trade body Maskati Cloth Market Mahajan, for the Fabrics & Trims Show. The Fabexa pavilion will host around 70 fabric manufacturers from Gujarat to demonstrate their expertise in fabric, cotton and natural-based fabrics, including Nakoda Fashion, Shashwat Textiles, Bhavna Processors, Viru Textile Mills, Panam Texfab, and Shree Chamunda Fabrics. The trade fair will also welcome about 300 fabrics sourcing representatives as hosted buyers for three days.

As a highly-recognized industry exhibition, Gartex Texprocess India New Delhi 2022 is backed by the support of the Ministry of Textiles as well as chief industry associations and trade bodies, comprising The Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI), Denim Manufacturers Association (DMA), Maskati Cloth Mahajan, Retailers Association of India (RAI) and the Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC).

Entering its seventh edition, Gartex Texprocess India will provide industry buyers with an excellent platform to source the latest manufacturing machinery and behold the progress taking place in textile, garment production, screen printing and other allied sectors.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
