With over 1,000 exhibitors and more than 30,000 visitors from 40 countries, this mega event will encompass knowledge sessions, seminars, conferences, CEO roundtables, B2B and G2G meetings, as well as strategic investment announcements, product launches, and collaborations that will redefine the global textile industry.

Live demonstrations, cultural events, and fashion presentations will create an exceptionally creative and engaging environment, offering insights into the realms of textile, fashion, sustainability, and style stemming from the heart of India. The event will also feature designer and brand exhibitions, fashion shows, sustainability workshops, and expert talks.

Speaking at the occasion, Rachna Shah, Secretary, the Ministry of Textile, emphasized the immense opportunity for the textile industry to increase its exports, making Bharat Tex 2024 a timely initiative. She noted that the exhibition will not be just an ordinary exhibition but an immersive experience. The expo will serve as a unique platform for bringing together key players from both the Indian and global textiles sectors, while highlighting the numerous existing and emerging opportunities, robust infrastructure, attractive incentives, and other benefits available in India for global investors and buyers.
