In­dia: Na­tional and in­ter­na­tional ex­perts to grace TANTU Sem­i­nar on Septem­ber 16

Stitch World - - NEWS TRACK -

The fifth edi­tion of TANTU Sem­i­nar is to be held on 16th Septem­ber 2017 at In­dia In­ter­na­tional Cen­tre in New Delhi. With most of the in­ter­na­tional brands al­ready pen­e­trat­ing the In­dian mar­ket, there are some In­dian brands which are ac­tively com­ing up in the ath­leisure seg­ment. This year’s TANTU will dis­cuss the chal­lenges and In­dia’s pre­pared­ness for this seg­ment.

Bi­jesh Todi, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, T10 Sports said, “Ath­leisure and ac­tive sports­wear are the ar­eas which are cur­rently pre­dom­i­nated by 3- 4 big in­ter­na­tional brands in In­dia. How­ever, with the in­crease in de­mand for sports­wear even among mid­dle and lower mid­dle­class econ­omy, there is a huge po­ten­tial for home grown brands in this seg­ment with bet­ter pric­ing, af­ford­abil­ity and value for money. It will be in­ter­est­ing to see how th­ese smaller new home- grown brands find their in­di­vid­ual spa­ces (with their own USPs and mar­ket seg­men­ta­tion) among the al­ready ex­ist­ing in­ter­na­tional brands.”

The high­light of the event will be panel dis­cus­sion on “Man­u­fac­tur­ing Chal­lenges” and “Mar­kets and Op­por­tu­ni­ties”. Dr. Pra­bir Jana, Pres­i­dent and Sem­i­nar Chair­man, TANTU says, “The sem­i­nar will be a rare con­gre­ga­tion of ex­perts and prac­ti­tion­ers of Ath­leisure and Ac­tive Sports­wear do­main, never seen be­fore. The de­lib­er­a­tions of the ex­perts will share and solve the prob­lems and fa­cil­i­tate the newly cre­ated yet high growth seg­ment to es­tab­lish as In­dia's strength.”

The key­note ad­dress will be done by Ram Sa­reen, Founder, Tukat­ech. In his speech, he will put light on the dy­namic world mar­ket and what In­dian man­u­fac­tur­ers needs to do.

The pan­el­lists who will be part of the dis­cus­sion are Anurag Jaic­hand, Head Tech­nol­ogy & In­no­va­tion, Wood­lands, In­dia; Bhupin­der Singh, Chief Prod­uct Of­fi­cer, Wild­craft, In­dia; Bi­jesh Todi, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, T10 Sports, In­dia; Deepak Singh, Di­rec­tor, Shiv Naresh Sports, In­dia; Deep­ankar Sekhri, Pro­duc­tion Process Man­ager, De­cathlon In­dia; Indu Sharma, Di­rec­tor Pro­duc­tion, Ac­tivewear, Delta Galil, USA Inc.; Mo­hit Sing­hal, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Aurro, In­dia; Roshan Baid, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Al­cis, In­dia; and San­chit Khu­rana, Founder, Pace Ath­let­ica, In­dia. Roshan Baid, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Al­cis said, “Ath­leisure is the fastest grow­ing fash­ion cat­e­gory in the world and In­dia has very less pro­duc­tion ex­per­tise and no home grown brands in this cat­e­gory. This ini­tia­tive by TANTU will help the par­tic­i­pants and the in­dus­try to un­der­stand the op­por­tu­ni­ties in this cat­e­gory.”

Tukat­ech is as­so­ci­ated with the sem­i­nar as Gold Partner and will present the cut­ting edge so­lu­tions for in­creas­ing ef­fi­ciency with tech­nol­ogy. Ke­so­ram Rayon, H& H Asia and RMP group are as­so­ci­ated as Sil­ver Part­ners.

The per­for­mance sports ap­parel mar­ket is ex­pected to gen­er­ate rev­enue of US $ 184.6 bil­lion by 2020, grow­ing at a CAGR of 4.3 per cent dur­ing 2015-2020. Ac­cord­ing to Euromon­i­tor re­port of 2015-16, the In­dian sports­wear mar­ket grew by 22 per cent, out­pac­ing the seg­ment's global in­crease of 7 per cent. By 2020, it is ex­pected to grow an ad­di­tional 12 per cent CAGR with sales ex­pected to reach US $ 8 bil­lion. By 2018, Asia- Pa­cific would emerge as the largest sports ap­parel mar­ket.

“Ath­leisure and Ac­tive sports­wear is one of the hottest cat­e­gories in fash­ion, but it re­quires fit and un­der­stand­ing of fab­ric be­hav­iour. I am so glad to see In­dia host­ing a con­fer­ence through TANTU on prod­ucts that re­quire amaz­ing tal­ent and ex­pe­ri­ence. The fo­rum and speak­ers will al­low ex­change of knowl­edge, ex­pe­ri­ence and un­der­stand­ing of chal­lenges for all.”

– Ram Sa­reen, Founder, Tukat­ech "Ath­leisure and ac­tive sports­wear is in­creas­ingly get­ting uni­fied into daily at­tire. The Ath­leisure wave in­stinc­tively be­ing trend-driven, has gained mas­sive pop­u­lar­ity in liv­ing a healthy, sporty and fit life. There's been im­mense de­vel­op­ment in raw ma­te­rial, man­u­fac­tur­ing, R&D, prod­uct per­cep­tion and its fit, etc."
