We are extremely thankful for patronizing our unique event Texfair and actively participating in the 9th edition of Texfair 2015 and making the event as the best ever event organized by the association. The expo was well received by the industry people.
We are glad to inform you that the fair attracted:-
Total number of stalls: 300; total number of exhibitors: 240; overseas exhibitors: five (China, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, Italy); domestic exhibitors hailed from: nine states; and total number of visitors: Around one lakh.
Percentage of exhibitors
Spinning machinery: 15%; Spinning accessories & spares: 55%; Weaving machinery: 5%; Weaving accessories & spares: 5%; Others: 20 per cent (Testing equipment, humidification plants, material handling, compressors, software, service providers, utilities, motors, etc.)
Coinciding the event, the association also organised international seminars on ´Modern development in Shuttleless Looms and Feasibility´, ´Mitigating Harmonics´, ´Innovation in Man-made Fibre Textiles´, ´Energy conservation in Textile Mills ´ Perform Achieve and Trade - PAT´, ´Scopes & avenues to utilize Solar Energy in Textile Industry´, ´Achieving Manufacturing Excellence in Spinning Mills´ during 10-11 January 2015 in a separate hall which attracted around 2,000 delegates.
The Association has planned to organise the next fair during August/November 2017 (considering ITMA and ITME events being organized in 2015 and 2016). As the infrastructure facilities have improved significantly in Coimbatore and likely to further improve in the next two years (flight connectivity, hotels, road, rail connectivity, etc), we have a plan to hold textile machinery show on a large scale on par with any other international textile machinery fair. As the expo is being organized by the user industry and also South India accounts for more than 40 per cent of the textile business and 50 per cent of the spinning capacity, all the exhibitors would have very high ROIs made in Texfair. However, we would continue to organise the fair in a cost-effective manner and make it very attractive. This is the only fair being visited by all the technicians, shop floor, middle management and top management of each and every mill located in South india (around 2,500 textile mills, seven lakh power units, 70 per cent of the knitted fabric manufacturers, 30 per cent of the processing fabrics manufacturers, 30 per cent of the handloom weavers and all the stakeholders across the value chain). The latest technology machines, spares, equipment, etc., displayed gave a golden opportunity for all the technocrats across the organization structure in any textile mill to update their technical knowledge and enhance their competitiveness. The expo greatly benefited the textile industry located in this region to a large extent.
