HGH India 2019, the annual trade show for Home Textiles, Home Décor, Gifts & Houseware in India is back with its 8th edition. The three-day exposition was inaugurated by Shri Shantamanu Development Commissioner, Handicrafts along with Arun Roongta, managing director of HGH India and other dignitaries from the industry. After a delayed start due to the torrential rains and flooding at the exhibition centre, the show is all set now to connect 700 brands and manufacturers from 32 countries with over 35,000 retailers, brand representatives, distributors, importers, as well as institutional and trade buyers.
This year’s edition of HGH India promises to set new benchmarks in the industry, bringing new brands, manufacturers, innovation, design and products under one roof. Among the many highlights of the exhibition, is the presence of international brands from Turkey, Europe, USA, UAE, the UK and over 75 exhibitors from China (brought through the Zhejiang Broad International Convention & Exhibition Co. Ltd) among others. There will also be a strong presence of well-known Indian brands showcasing a wide range of innovative products in the home textiles, home décor, houseware and gifts space.
While inaugurating HGH India 2019, Shri Shantamanu, Development Commissioner, Handicrafts, said, “In the last eight years of operation, HGH India has displayed clear, increasing progress. Their focus, much like ours, has always been on the artisans, craftsmen, carpet weavers and handicraft workers. Trade shows like this help in providing exposure to them; and watching the biggest names of the industry together on one unified platform, helps them understand the kind of opportunities available. While HGH stands for Home Décor, Gifts and Houseware, for me it stands for Higher, Go Higher.”
Commenting on the occasion, Roongta said, “We at HGH India are overwhelmed with the response in spite of the delayed start. I would like to thank all the exhibitors and retailers for their unanimous support in helping us keep the show alive for the benefit of the entire industry. HGH India’s 8th edition is a testimony to the entire home product industry’s trust in the trade show, and we are confident that it will be another successful year for all our patrons, accelerating the growth of the home textile, home décor, houseware and gifts industries.”
