rakshit poddar, Cheer Sagar exports, Jaipur
We are into exports since 1996 and produce 1 lakh pieces of garments per month. The response at the fair was stagnant as footfall was very less and we had expected more buyers. There were no bulk orders as 90% of the people were from small retail brands and boutiques which were not our target. The perception of the international buyers about India’s apparel export industry is that it offers good collection, there is variety also, but then since the footfall was low there were hardly any people to interact with. Even though the show is marketed well there is not enough market demand. The India pavilion also could not see too much activity and the turnaround was less.
