 Denim Zone and Chinese Pavilion to rule the Yarn, Fabric & Accessories Trade Show (YFA) 2016

 

A special highlight of the upcoming second edition of the Yarn, Fabric & Accessories Trade Show (YFA) Show which will run from November 23 (Wednesday) to 26 (Saturday), 2016 at NSIC Exhibition Center Okhla, New Delhi, India will be the Denim Zone, which will see 20 top Indian denim fabric makers exhibiting their denim innovations.

 

Another highlight is ‘YFA Talent’, a fashion designing contest for upcoming talent from leading fashion designing institutes. To add an icing to the cake, the organizers have also arranged a conference in association with TIT-Bhiwani and the Textile Association of India (TAI).

 

One more initiative is ‘Titoba’, an alumni meet with a gathering of more than 800 top industry professionals in association with TIT Bhiwani and again the Textile Association of India (TAI).

 

Concocting the Chinese flavour

 

There will also be a special Chinese Pavilion, where around 40 Chinese exhibitors will showcase yarns, fabrics and garment accessories. Additionally, WGSN, the global authority on fashion trends will be the Trend Partner and will also be putting up a Pavilion.

 

More than 100 exhibitors made the 2015 edition of the show a history, which saw visitation by more than 7,477 visitors. For the 2016 show, the organizers are expecting over 250 brands from several countries and more than 15,000 visitors, who too are expected from across 15 countries all over the globe.

 

Their optimism stems from the fact that with still more than 100 days to go, nearly 80 percent of the space has already been booked, mainly driven by several returning exhibitors who have booked bigger stalls, mainly due to the good results derived from their participation at the 2015 edition.

 

All this has led to the organizers doubling the exhibition space from one hall in 2015 to two halls for the 2016 edition, which will feature products beginning right from fibres to yarns to fabrics and finally accessories and will also bring renowned suppliers from the these four segments closer to buyers.

 

Of Recognitions

 

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in a letter to the organizers expressed his happiness on the organization of the YFA 2016 show and sent his best wishes to the organizers and participants. Union Minister for States for Textiles, Shri Ajay Tamta also said that the YFA Show can prove to be a gateway for companies across the country to enter export markets.

The Minister further added that the trade show is also helpful for the Make-in-India program of our Prime Minister, as the show will encourage multinational as well as domestic companies to manufacture products in India and make the country a top foreign direct investment destination.

The fair is organised by Vision Communications, supported by the Northern India Textile Mills Association (NITMA) with AEPC (Apparel Export Promotion Council), TA(I) (Textile Association of India), PDEXCIL (Power loom Development Export Promotion Council), CMAI (Clothing Manufacturers Association of India), FOHMA (Federation of Hosiery Manufacturers Association),  NAEC (Noida Apparel Export Cluster), NITRA (Northern India Textile Research Institute), U.P.
