En­thu­si­as­tic Re­sponse Gte-delhi – 2018 Leaves EX­HIBITORS in High Spir­its

Perfect Sourcing - - Fair & Events -

The New Year be­gan with a vi­brant Gar­ment Tech­nol­ogy Expo – 2018, held from 19 to 22 Jan­uary at the NSIC Ex­hi­bi­tion Ground in New Delhi. As one of the big­gest events in the tex­tile and ap­parel in­dus­try, the expo dis­played a va­ri­ety of the lat­est so­phis­ti­cated ma­chines and be­spoke equip­ment for the sec­tor. The enor­mous turnout, even on the open­ing day of the event, was en­cour­ag­ing for the in­dus­try. There were in­quis­i­tive vis­i­tors, anx­ious buy­ers, and even cu­ri­ous stu­dents of fash­ion tech­nol­ogy who swarmed the stalls ques­tion­ing the ex­hibitors.

Over 250 com­pa­nies had gath­ered from dif­fer­ent parts of the globe to par­tic­i­pate in GTE-2018 for four days to dis­play their va­ri­eties of ma­chin­ery in the gar­ment sec­tor. They were hap­pily in­un­dated with busi­ness in­quiries, pro­pos­als, and ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est by buy­ers. The par­tic­i­pat­ing com­pa­nies dis­played sewing and em­broi­dery ma­chines, but­ton at­tach­ing ma­chines, dig­i­tal print­ing ma­chines, unique hanger sys­tems, form fin­ish­ers for jack­ets and trousers, thread and yarn, and any­thing and ev­ery­thing de­signed to rev­o­lu­tionise the func­tion­ing of the gar­ment in­dus­try.

Team Per­fect Sourc­ing in­ter­acted with many del­e­gates. Although all ex­hibitors had some­thing unique to dis­play, the com­mon feed­back given by them was their sat­is­fac­tion with the re­sponse that the event re­ceived and the en­quiries that flowed in. The other com­mon topic dis­cussed was the gov­ern­ment poli­cies for boost­ing the sec­tor.

Many in the in­dus­try were con­cerned about pol­lu­tion and some were show­cas­ing en­vi­ron­ment-friendly ma­chines. Oth­ers ap­peared keen to con­tribute to the Gov­ern­ment’s ‘Make in In­dia’ pro­gramme. Gen­eral anx­ious­ness was noted about the dearth of skilled hu­man re­source in the in­dus­try, one is­sue that the lat­est tech­nol­ogy is able to ad­dress well. How­ever, the ex­hibitors’ uni­ver­sal em­pha­sis was on of­fer­ing ma­chines that could help in in­creas­ing ef­fi­ciency and pro­duc­tiv­ity.
