GTTES 2019 is ready to herald a new successful business year with new optimism, new opportunities and new prospects for the textile industry with 400+ exhibitors and 48+ countries in its much anticipated 2nd edition in Mumbai from January 18-20, 2019.
GTTES has grown in size and numbers and has achieved a 26 per cent growth rate attracting about 168 companies as first time participants who have never participated in any ITME events. This is a remarkable response to the 2nd edition GTTES, indicating that this event has achieved its place as a reliable international business platform for both domestic and overseas companies. It is very attractive for start-ups and small, medium companies from non-metro cities due to its low-cost participation charges and focused exhibit chapters. First time participation from Sri Lanka and Slovenia and countries like Belgium, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Turkey, UK, USA, Taiwan, Algeria, Djibouti, Kuwait, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Senegal, etc., is a testimony to global reach of GTTES as a trusted opportunity for business and gateway to India.
Apart from this, GTTES 2019 shall facilitate interaction with all Export Promotion Councils, which again shall help the industry to know more about export opportunities, various Government subsidies, market initiative schemes available for Indian manufacturers and help to gain information and develop new opportunities for exports from India.
The road shows are an important part of visibility and one-to-one connect with textile hubs in various parts of the countries as well as globally. Every major hub in our country has been tapped by the Society. A total of 18 promotional activities has been conducted over the last six months in India and overseas. Visitor registration is much higher than the 1st edition GTTES and the number of countries sending the business delegates to attend the event is also increased. Apart from the regular business delegates from Bangladesh, Egypt, Sudan, Ghana, Nepal, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Egypt, Brazil, Morocco etc., there shall be first-time delegates from Chile, Abu Dhabi, and Palestine. The ministerial delegation from Ethiopia shall be available for one to one discussion for Investment and Incentives offered by Ethiopian Government.
As a trendsetting exhibition organiser, India ITME Society takes care to address trending topics as well as the topics which need attention.

Ltd on ‘Educating the Technology Innovations in Textile Colouration’ on January 19-20, 2019 respectively at GTTES 2019, shall empower Industry on these subjects.
