♦ India has risen to 15th position on the back of solid growth in retail
sales and strong prospects for future GDP growth. India's retail
market is expected to grow to $1.3 trillion by 2020, and GDP is
expected to grow at 8% over the next three years, making India the
world's fastest-growing major developing market. India represents a good
opportunity for international retailers in single-brand retail, cash-and-carry,
and e-commerce, as the country appears to be on the cusp of a strong growth
phase over the next five years.
♦ The tipping point for brick-and-mortar retail continues to be the opening up of FDI norms in multi-brand retail, a move that is not expected in the near-term. A show like GSI will allow everybody in the supply chain to come together and showcase their products and increase the growth rate.
♦ North India particularly Delhi and adjoining areas have been looking for a platform to showcase their potential range of garments and reach every nook and corner of the country.The India retail market,accounts for around 14-15 per cent of the gross domestic product (GDP) and is estimated to be worth around US$ 500 billion. As of now, almost 90 per cent of the Indian retail sector is controlled by tiny family-run shops i.e. the unorganised segment. Thus, organised retailers have a lot of room for further penetration in this flourishing economy. Thus, this is the perfect timing for a show like GSI in India.
♦ A b2b show which can bring an array of manufacturers, retailers, distributers, wholesalers, brands, fashion designers, online retailers under one roof and change the sourcing dynamics and this is the main objective of Garment Show of India.
“ Well organised, smartly designed show, great management, over all the show has provided what it promised that is “Exposer to customers” and we expect even better arrangements in terms of space publicity and quality footfall for next edition..”
“This atmosphere is a blessing for the garment show of India. This business in India will surely grow. India is standing 5th in the world in terms of textile manufacturing. We hope it goes to the 1st place.”
“We have found the fair to be good as we have come across good vendors for many product categories. ”

“Garment industry is very fragmented. We need to work harder and should work united. There is a need to make a smart move. We have lots of workforce to work together. We should use the technology for the betterment. Youth has to now work for the betterment and growth of the industry.”
“ Thank you for inviting me to such a great platform. I highly appreciate the effort of the organisers for putting up such a great show and bringing so many manufacturers, retail chains and ecommerce companies all at one point. Enthusiasm and creativity is at its palpable best at the exhibition. The way everyone has decorated their stalls and have come up with creative denims, suits, blazers, sherwanis, western wear, etc., everything is amazing. I wish the organisers Gagan and Deepti Marwah best of luck for the exhibition. ”
“ This is an excellent platform for all companies that are into the garment trade; as a chain, we are always looking for an innovative range and this is only possible if we get to meet new vendors who have quality, price and design. I congratulate the organisers of the exhibition for putting up such a great show and opening new doors of opportunities for those associated in the business.”
