These fashion trade fairs serve as a convergence point for leading manufacturing houses from various fashion industries, uniting under one roof to showcase their products to the world.
At the 69th IIGF Fair 2023, held at the India Expo Centre and Mart in Greater Noida from 26th to 28th June 2023, Tradyl stood as one of the 352 exhibitors. This grand event commenced with an inauguration ceremony, which was graced by the presence of Shri Piyush Goyal, the Textile Minister of India. The fair spanned over three days, offering a dynamic platform for more than 1150 buyers hailing from 100+ countries to explore an extensive range of high-quality apparel and accessories designs. The showcased categories included Womenswear, Menswear, Kidswear, Knitwear, Recycled/Sustainable Garments, and Fashion Accessories. Exhibitors from 12 different states in India gathered in one convenient location, enabling buyers to efficiently source appropriate products for their respective markets. Year after year, the IIGF attracts buyers from across the globe, fostering substantial business transactions worth millions of US dollars.
India, now the world's second-largest textile and clothing exporter, possesses immense potential for increased trade with countries worldwide. As a result, the IIGF plays a pivotal role in harnessing this potential by attracting international buyers and brands.
