With portfolio expansion and future development of the industry in sight, the organizers of Texprocess India and Gartex India have entered into a strategic alliance to form a unified industry platform ‘Gartex Texprocess India’. The event will be part of Messe Frankfurt’s Texpertise Network leveraging on the group’s strong global network and expertise in the sector.
Having made its debut in 2016, both Texprocess India and Gartex India received tremendous response from the industry with leading associations and companies in the garment and textile machinery sector coming forward to support the shows.
While Texprocess India was launched as a pavilion to create an innovation platform for garment manufacturing and textile processing at Techtextil India in Mumbai, Gartex India was held annually in New Delhi and has grown wider in scope covering not just garment and textile manufacturing value chains, but has also added segments such as the innerwear manufacturing zone, Laundry & Denim show along the way in addition to digital textile printing, embroidery and other existing verticals. With the merger of the two strong textile trade fair brands, the organizers, Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India Pvt. Ltd. and MEX Exhibitions, aspire to work in collaboration for development of the textile industry development in India, facilitating global sourcing and networking in the textile value chains.
While the show will continue to maintain a strong focus on garment and textile manufacturing solutions, embroidery machines, digital textile printing sector, sewing machines, laundry solutions, innerwear manufacturing, denim show, fabrics, accessories among others, the organizers aims to expand exhibit segments to cover the complete textile process chain in coming editions. This includes technologies involved from designing, cutting, sewing, knitting and embroidery to finishing, refining, IT and logistics, which will supplement its textile technology portfolio through the association with Texprocess.
Gartex Texprocess India will now be part of Messe Frankfurt’s Texpertise Network, which is a combination of the world’s most important textile trade fair worldwide that highlight innovations and show what is driving the global textile industry. The unified Gartex Texprocess India edition will be held from August 10th to 12th, 2019 at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi.
