India’s biggest garment fair for domestic garment manufacturers is now online and will be organised from 2 to 11 September 2020.
As per the Clothing Manufacturers Association of India (CMAI), organiser of the show, the 71st edition of National Garment Fair (NGF) is re-evolved and re-invented to keep industry ahead of fashion trends and overall business opportunities.
To make the show successful, CMAI is on its toes and approaching prospective participants effectively through various ways.
The show used to take place twice a year in January and July.
The July edition of the event used to take place in the first or the second week of the month. The 4-day-long July edition last year had over 1,000 exhibitors from across India and around 40,000 visitors including retailers, corporate buyers, wholesalers, agents, distributors, etc. visited it.
In India, so far in the textile and garment industry, Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) has organised two virtual sourcing shows but they were mainly for export. It will be interesting to see how the domestic market gains from a virtual show.
