The combination of three integral segments of handicrafts sector home-textiles, houseware and furniture concluded at India Expo Centre & Mart, Greater Noida. The premium expo, saw 720 overseas buyers and their representatives and buying agents and retail buyers sourcing for their focused requirements from a diverse range of international products under one-roof showcased by more than 650 exhibitors.
A highly dedicated and product-segmented triple show Home Expo India was the culmination of Indian Houseware and Decoratives Show (IHDS), Indian furnishings, floorings and textiles show (IFFTEX) and Indian Furniture and Accessories Shows (IFAS) offered opportunities to the visitors to source their requirements under one roof.
One of the distinct features of the show was display of products from Northeastern region made out of cane and bamboo. Rakesh Kumar, Executive Director, EPCH stated the push is now on product-segmented specialized trade shows rather than trade shows covering all product categories after the development taking place in the international markets. So Home Expo India was initiated by EPCH in 2012 and this year it has entered its 7th edition.
EPCH is the nodal export promotion body for handicrafts in India and plays an important role as a catalyst between exporters, buyers and the government with the main objective of boosting handicrafts exports from the country and also projects India’s image in the global markets as a reliable supplier of handcrafted exquisite and quality products.
