Par­tic­i­pat­ing in the NGF has al­ways worked for us. As the say­ing goes, ‘when the go­ing gets tough, the tough get go­ing,’ so rather than cry­ing about the mar­ket slow­down, the Fair is a proac­tive step taken by the CMAI. The or­gan­i­sa­tion of the Fair is won­der­ful as usual and the NGF is one of the best ways to con­nect with the larger mar­ket.

Rad­hesh Kagzi, 109⁰F We are par­tic­i­pat­ing for the sec­ond time in the NGF. The ar­range­ments are very good. The Fair will help us con­nect to a larger mar­ket. We shall be able to in­ter­act with clients from across In­dia and shall be able to judge and con­duct trans­ac­tions with them ac­cord­ingly.

Ritesh, He­tall Global Pvt. Ltd. We have al­ways been par­tic­i­pat­ing in the NGF. The ex­pec­ta­tions are that the brand aware­ness has to in­crease. We don’t ac­tu­ally ex­pect to sell from here; it is just to make our pres­ence felt in the mar­ket. That’s the main aim. The NGF is al­ways or­gan­ised very well. My brand started off with an en­try in the CMAI Fair; the Fair gave my brand the ex­po­sure it needed that was very im­por­tant, and that en­cour­aged me to go ahead due to the good re­sponse gen­er­ated. For new­com­ers, this is the best plat­form to make their pres­ence felt.

Sharmila Nad­karni, Desi Belle We have been par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Fair since the past eight years. It is a good place to con­nect and meet new cus­tomers. The scale of the 58th NGF is very good. Prakash Parekh, On­line

Gar­ments Ac­tu­ally, I am par­tic­i­pat­ing for the first time in the NGF. I am look­ing for prospec­tive buy­ers and I’m keep­ing my fin­gers crossed. This is a good plat­form and I am hop­ing for the best.

Kapil, Sabrang I al­ways par­tic­i­pate in CMAI’s NGF. The ar­range­ments are su­perb. New cus­tomers and ex­porters come in and busi­ness is con­ducted. We have al­ways ben­e­fited from the Fair. This is a good place to con­nect and is a good con­cept. The only dif­fer­ence be­tween the 57th and 58th NGF is that this sea­son is usu­ally smaller.

Prakash Shah, Shloka We had vis­ited the Fair last time also and have got good foot­falls on the first day. I have got quite a few en­quiries and I am ex­pect­ing good foot­falls.

Reena, Reet Fash­ions I have en­tered the re­tail space and I am look­ing to widen my mar­ket. I have been work­ing in the in­ter­na­tional mar­ket and I want to en­ter the In­dian re­tail space as there is a lot of scope for gar­ments here. I have par­tic­i­pated with the CMAI In­ter­na­tional Fairs held in Delhi be­fore, but this is my first time at the NGF in Mum­bai.

Pratham, Batik In­dia I have high ex­pec­ta­tions from the 58th NGF. The Jan­uary Fair was held in BKC ear­lier and now it is held in Gore­gaon. The re­sponse, this time, will be bet­ter than last Jan­uary. This is the best place for con­nect­ing to the mar­ket. I have been par­tic­i­pat­ing since around eight years in the NGF.

Vishal Gala, Bla­zon

The plan­ning is quite good. I have been ob­serv­ing since the last five times, the Fair only gets bet­ter each time. There are a lot of new brands com­ing in and the cur­rent brands are also im­prov­ing. One way for the Fair to grow fur­ther is to have brands from far flung states of In­dia par­tic­i­pat­ing as well. I ex­pect that the Fair will soon be as pop­u­lar as in­ter­na­tional Fairs across the world.

Mithun, Jean­er­a­tion Cloth­ing Pvt. Ltd. We are mainly par­tic­i­pat­ing in this Fair to gain ex­po­sure and also to at­tract new cus­tomers. We have been par­tic­i­pat­ing since the last 2-3 years and the or­gan­i­sa­tion has al­ways been well-planned and well-co­or­di­nated. We have ben­e­fited from ear­lier par­tic­i­pa­tion and look for­ward to keep par­tic­i­pat­ing in the NGF.

Sunil, L’ef­fet This is the sec­ond time we are par­tic­i­pat­ing in the NGF. Here, there is good ex­po­sure for the new prod­ucts we launch. We are very happy with the ar­range­ments. We pro­cured new clients last time around too and got a good idea of what the cus­tomer re­quires. This has helped us to de­velop new prod­ucts ac­cord­ingly.

Nilesh Na­gada, Sun­muda There is a great mar­ket­ing ben­e­fit to be de­rived from this Fair. We are very happy with the or­gan­i­sa­tion of the Fair and we are get­ting a good re­sponse. We have been par­tic­i­pat­ing since the last three years and have re­ceived a good re­sponse each time. The Fair was okay. I did in­ter­act with many ex­hibitors. I didn’t see any new brands as such, but I per­son­ally liked 109⁰F and Desi Belle.

Pu­nita, Astron The Fair is good and I am happy with the ar­range­ments. Though we did not con­duct any ex­tra busi­ness, we did main­tain con­ti­nu­ity. We will def­i­nitely par­tic­i­pate in the next NGF and we are look­ing for­ward to the next Fair.

Hitesh Karia, SK En­ter­prises

Gopalb­hai, Jy­oti Cre­ation The re­sponse has been 50-50 but the or­gan­i­sa­tion and plan­ning of the Fair have been up to the mark. We have re­ceived en­quiries and look to fol­low them up af­ter the Fair. Nowa­days, the mar­ket is a bit slug­gish but by the next Fair, the mar­ket should re­vive it­self and sales should in­crease.

Sunil, Flo­ret/K.C.J Fash­ion The re­sponse has been good for us. We have en­ter­tained around 22-23 cus­tomers since two days and we are ex­pect­ing 10-20 cus­tomers more, to­day. This is the best way to con­nect to the larger mar­ket. We have been par­tic­i­pat­ing since the last 3-4 sea­sons. The or­gan­i­sa­tion and plan­ning of the NGF is al­ways good and we shall con­tinue to par­tic­i­pate at the Fair. Rat­nesh Bo­ra­nia, Oil and

Grease Ap­parel Pvt. Ltd. This is the first time I am par­tic­i­pat­ing and though we are not into ap­parel, our ac­ces­sories are draw­ing in buy­ers and new clients. The ex­pe­ri­ence has been good and I will par­tic­i­pate in the next Fair, too. The stall lo­ca­tion has been good and con­sid­er­ing it is my first time, I have re­ceived a very good re­sponse. Vi­mal Pa­tel, Mishti

Footwear & Bags We only come to browse and make a note of the pre­vail­ing trends in Sum­mer Fairs but pre­fer buy­ing and seal­ing deals dur­ing Win­ter Fairs. In terms of in­no­va­tions, I liked the men’s wear brand, Junk Ca­su­als. Pa­van Sharma, Shruti Col­lec­tions, Harid­war The Fair pro­vides us with a good plat­form to dis­play our prod­ucts and the client flow has also been good. The NGF has helped our brand pres­ence and we have also got new cus­tomers through this Fair. The or­gan­i­sa­tion of the Fair has al­ways been good and we are very pleased with the ar­range­ments.

Deven, Cam­ou­flaage Fash­ion
