Re: Participation in “TEXTILES INDIA”, a mega Exhibition of textiles organized by MOT in Gandhinagar with participation of all EPCs from 30th June to 2nd July 2017

As you are aware, SRTEPC along with other Export Promotion Councils, is organizing a mega participation of its member-companies in the prestigious Textile Show in India, which is named: “TEXTILES INDIA”. This mega Show of Textiles, a Flagship Program of the Ministry of Textiles (MOT), Govt. of India with active involvement of all the textiles Export Promotion Councils and related Bodies/Associations, is being organized from 30th June to 2nd July, 2017 at Mahatma Mandir, Gandhinagar, Gujarat. TEXTILES INDIA, which is being organized with participation of around 1000 exhibitors – representing all textile EPCs/other organizations/institutions and invitation of around 2500 Foreign Buyers, Agents, Senior Executives of Buying Houses/Retail Chain Stores, Textile Traders and Fashion Designers with complimentary facilities, is scheduled to be inaugurated by Shri. Narendra Modi, Hon'ble Prime Minister of India on 30th June, 2017. In order to make this flagship program of the Ministry of Textiles more significant and memorable, Conferences, Country/State sessions, Theme Pavilion, Fashion Shows, Roundtables by Industrial Associations/Councils, B2B & B2G Meetings will also be organized on the sidelines of TEXTILES INDIA.

Considering the above, SRTEPC is mobilizing around 150 member-companies – representing different product groups including suitings, shirtings, made-ups, home textiles, dress materials, fashion fabrics, sarees and different varieties of yarn and fibre. The Council is also inviting around 100 Foreign Buyers from the leading markets/regions of textiles including Asia, Africa, Middle East/Gulf, Latin America, Europe and CIS countries with complimentaries. In this regard, in order to invite the prominent buyers from the leading buying countries of textiles, participating member-companies will also be allowed to give specific references of some big buyers, who they consider useful for their visit to TEXTILES INDIA for discussing business with their Indian Counterparts.

With the above arrangements, since TEXTILES INDIA presents an excellent opportunity to the SRTEPC member-companies to participate in the above mentioned prestigious Show of Textiles in Gandhinagar by showcasing their complete range of products for discussing business with their discerning Foreign Customers from more than 30 leading markets of textiles across the world, TEXTILES INDIA is, therefore, a “not-to-be-missed” opportunity.
