Perfect Sourcing - - Front Page -

Gar­tex, In­dia’s lat­est en­trant into com­pre­hen­sive ex­hi­bi­tion for gar­ment and tex­tile machin­ery, fab­rics, ac­ces­sories and al­lied in­dus­tries got a pos­i­tive re­sponse. Held in the month of July at Pra­gati Maidan, the show saw around 100 stalls. Ac­cord­ing to the fig­ures shared by or­gan­is­ers, around 16,790 trade vis­i­tors thronged the hall to ex­plore in­no­va­tions in the world of gar­ment and tex­tile man­u­fac­tur­ing.

In 2016, Gar­tex or­gan­ised its maiden show at Pra­gati Maidan, Delhi, with a motto to cel­e­brate tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vances in the In­dian tex­tile in­dus­try through the show­cas­ing of high qual­ity, high speed and com­pet­i­tively priced prod­ucts. On get­ting a good re­sponse, the or­gan­is­ers were en­cour­aged to come up with the

2nd edi­tion of the show in July 2017 at the same venue. The show started off with more than a thou­sand pre­reg­is­tered vis­i­tors and buy­ers, or­gan­is­ers made sure of qual­ity foot­fall for the show as their ex­hibitors looked for the same.

we have seen 40% growth against pre­vi­ous edi­tion, 35% in­crease in new buy­ers from var­i­ous in­dus­try clus­ters and 55% new ex­hibitors. Buy­ers came from all over in­dia in­clud­ing Del­hincr, Jaipur, Kolkata, Ben­galuru, Bhubaneswar, Surat, Mum­bai, Lud­hi­ana, pa­ni­pat, etc

In­dus­try stake­hold­ers from the ar­eas like gar­ment­ing, fab­ric, em­broi­dery, dig­i­tal print­ing, sew­ing, cut­ting so­lu­tions, soft­ware and other al­lied prod­ucts shared a sat­is­fied re­sponse. Ex­hibitors unan­i­mously re­ported con­clud­ing good busi­ness deals, promis­ing contacts and an up­beat mood in this rapidly emerg­ing po­ten­tial sec­tor, a fact that is ex­pected to gen­er­ate prof­itable fol­low-up busi­ness.

Com­pa­nies like Aura Tech­nolo­gies, Tukat­ech, Me­hala, Siruba, Fu­cen, Ta­jima, Baba, Tang, Dayu, Unix, Jaysynth, Mi­maki, Color­jet, Roland, Ap­som Tech­nolo­gies, Brite­jet, Daksh En­ter­prises, Efi-reg­giani, DCC Print Vi­sion Llp., and many more par­tic­i­pated at the ex­hi­bi­tion.

“The long queue of ‘Vis­i­tors’ at the reg­is­tra­tion is tes­ti­mony to the fact that the show has been well re­ceived by the in­dus­try. Also, the ex­hibitors ex­pressed their sat­is­fac­tion with the qual­ity of vis­i­tors; we could at­tract them through our un­tir­ing ef­forts in show-pro­mo­tion across the coun­try. Apart from that, with var­ied seg­ments like em­broi­dery, dig­i­tal print­ing, value-added gar­ment machin­ery, bead­ing ma­chines, CADCAM and other soft­ware, threads, sew­ing ma­chines, quilt­ing ma­chines, etc., we have tried bring­ing in a val­uechain of the gar­ment and tex­tile man­u­fac­tur­ing so­lu­tion for our val­ued se­ri­ous buy­ers,” said Gau­rav.

The ex­hibitors saw the pres­ence of many ex­port houses, mill own­ers, sports­wear man­u­fac­tur­ers, fash­ion de­sign­ers, home fur­nish­ing com­pa­nies, do­mes­tic gar­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pa­nies, tex­tile print­ing houses, etc., who thronged the venue from all over In­dia. A lot of par­tic­i­pants were from the dig­i­tal print­ing and subli­ma­tion seg­ment. Negi Sign Sys­tems re­cently col­lab­o­rated with Kor­nit Dig­i­tal and is pro­mot­ing Kor­nit Al­le­gro, which is a roll to roll print­ing so­lu­tion. Color­jet on the other hand re­ceived grand ap­pre­ci­a­tion for their Make in In­dia Au­ra­jet and Vas­tra­jet. JISL show­cased a pig­ment ink based dig­i­tal print ma­chine that needs no pre-treated fab­ric and sold more than five ma­chines on the very first day. Ta­jima, one of Ja­pan’s largest em­broi­dery ma­chine man­u­fac­tur­ers, also re­ceived good re­sponse from buy­ers, said of­fi­cials.

“Well, we have got good re­sponse; ex­hi­bi­tions like Gar­tex has al­ways helped trig­ger good busi­ness deals” said ajay Jain, rishab prints.

Many of the ex­hibitors such as Color­jet, Ta­jima, Tang, Dayu, Unix, Aura, Me­hala, Jaysynth, etc., used Gar­tex as the launch­pad to in­tro­duce their new tech­nolo­gies to cus­tomers. Th­ese apart, quite a few other ex­hibitors had put their lat­est di­rect-to-fab­ric print­ers on live demon­stra­tions that at­tracted many se­ri­ous buy­ers to get a glance of how tech­nol­ogy is chang­ing. “We have dis­played our 40ft em­broi­dery ma­chine and vis­i­tors have liked it; we have been asked to ar­range for a meet­ing af­ter the show, so the re­sponse is re­ally good, ” said Mu­rari Lal pa­sur­am­puria, Baba tex­tile Machin­ery .

From se­cu­rity to food, or­gan­is­ers kept all in check. Reg­is­tra­tion on ar­rival re­mained easy for vis­i­tors who had missed the pre-reg­is­tra­tion; dif­fer­ent booths for reg­is­tered, on ar­rival reg­is­tra­tion and me­dia reg­is­tra­tion made the en­try easy and or­gan­ised. The VIP Lounge for prom­i­nent in­ter­na­tional and na­tional per­son­al­i­ties made wait­ing, dis­cus­sion and me­dia cov­er­age easy. “We have re­ceived good re­sponse and met many po­ten­tial clients, so we hope to turn them into busi­ness in fu­ture” said Savita ahlawat, Man­ager, ra­jd­hani Cre­ations pvt. Ltd.

Fil­tered vis­i­tors helped the ex­hibitors to con­nect bet­ter with their po­ten­tial clients and most of them re­ported sale of machin­ery, though some com­plained about not get­ting to see many vis­i­tors from other parts of In­dia. “The re­sponse is good, but there are fewer vis­i­tors than ex­pected for subli­ma­tion print­ing. It seems dig­i­tal print­ing ma­chines have taken front seat,” said rahul ag­gar­wal, Shree Balaji in­dus­tries.

Over­all, most of the ex­hibitors gave a thumbs up for the suc­cess of Gar­tex’s grand ef­forts. Based on the feed­back from both vis­i­tors and ex­hibitors, the or­gan­is­ers have de­cided to dou­ble the size of next year’s show, with ex­panded floor space to ac­com­mo­date around dou­ble the ex­hibitors count be­sides en­hanced sec­tions pre­sent­ing an en­tire value-chain of gar­ment and tex­tile man­u­fac­tur­ing so­lu­tions. The show con­cluded on 31st July on a pos­i­tive note, aim­ing to host an­other great event in 2018.
