The 3rd Mumbai edition of ‘Gartex Texprocess India’ opened its door on 1 February at Jio World Convention Centre, (JWCC), Mumbai, for exhibitors and visitors from garment and textile manufacturing.

In his inaugural address, Chandrakant Patil, minister of textiles, higher education and technical education, and parliamentary affairs, appreciated the efforts in bringing ‘fabric to finish solutions’ onto a single platform. “Being held in two of the country’s prime business hubs, the exhibition ensures that it caters to the business demands of the textile clusters situated across the length and breadth of the country. I am sure it will provide the much-needed opportunity to domestic manufacturers to identify the right technologies, enhance their business and aid the growth and promotion of the Indian garment and textile manufacturing value chain.”

He encouraged the attendees to promote the government’s ‘vocal for local’ campaign, which is now moving towards ‘vocal for global’.

This edition welcomes more than 30 new exhibitors to witness the show floor of Gartex Texprocess India for the first time. The co-located Denim Show, Fabrics and Trims Show and an exclusive zone on Screen Print India-Textile demonstrate the latest trends and innovations.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
