IIGF to be held at Greater Noida
The upcoming 61st edition of Indian International Garment Fair (IIGF) scheduled to take place from 16 to 18th July 2018, will be held at Expo Mart, Greater Noida. Earlier the event used to take place at Pragati Maidan (Delhi). The decision has been taken due to the ongoing construction work at Pragati Maidan being held in full swing. AEPC, the organisers of the show, have claimed that there will be no trouble due to change in venue. “Expo Mart is a world-class venue and all kinds of amenities are already available there. Noida is also a world-class city and we are offering hotel stay in Noida, pick and drop to the buyers and buying houses (apart from Delhi-NCR), so there will be no inconvenience to anyone,” informed Lalit Thukral, Chairman, Exhibition Advisory Committee (EAC), AEPC. He further added that UP will be a partner state for the event as the State Government is promoting apparel manufacturing in Noida. Also Noida was recently announced ‘City of Apparels’ by the UP Government. Focusing on Spring/Summer 2019 collections, the show is expected to witness participation from nearly 550 exporters from across India.
