Talking about the fair, Mr. HKL Magu, Chairman AEPC, said, “IIGF is India’s largest garment exhibition

which has been successfully providing a marketing platform to small and medium exporters to showcase

their latest garment and fashion accessories trends to the international buyers and helping them to

leverage brand India across the globe. The fair is happening at a time when Industry is facing lot of

challenges both domestically and globally but I am sure that with a large buyer base IIGF will be able to

turn things around for Indian apparel exporters. In the last fair held at Ahmedabad, the response was

quite encouraging and this year we are looking forward towards capitalizing on the momentum built

during the Ahmedabad fair".

Sharing his views about IIGF, Mr. Lalit Thukral, Chairman, Exhibition Advisory Committee, IIGF said,

“60 th IIGF assumes great importance as the apparel Industry is still coping with the sudden dilution of

DBK and ROSL rates. In the prevailing circumstances, it is indeed very important that the prospective

buyers gets connected with the exporters so that the business multiplies. IIGF is known for bringing

the Indian exporters and global buyers together on one platform acts and it will surely help in boosting

the confidence of the Indian garment Industry. I am quite sure that 60th IIGF will help the Industry in

influencing the buyer sentiments and demonstrating our product strengths".

business development. Besides this, the best displayed stalls would be awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze
