The ninth edition of Yarnex - India International Yarn Exhibition organized by S. S. Textile Media got off to a colourful start in Tirupur on Friday displaying an innovative portfolio of fabrics, yarns, embellishments and accessories from across the globe. Earlier, Tirupur Exporters Association president-elect Raja M. Shanmugam inaugurated the fair.
A total of 92 firms from India and abroad are displaying their products at the exhibition. â€œOf the 92 participants, 50 firms have participated in earlier editions which is an indicator of repeated interest in participating in the event, said P. Krishnamurthy, chief executive officer of S.S. Textile Media.
The show is acting as an one-stop destination for the manufacturers of textile products to source latest range of raw materials such as yarn, accessories and fabrics that could give value-addition to the end products.
Harpreet Singh, senior manager of a North India-based textile unit, who is taking part for the third year, said that the participation in the fair had helped fetch some good orders in the previous years and hence, came back.
For first timers like Hong Chen, an International Sales Director for her Chinese firm based at Fujian, the fair was seen as a platform to explore new markets. Their company is into knitting and production of yarn. Though they have knitting orders from India, they are yet to tap the business from yarn.
Yarnex a three day event being held from 16th September to the 18th September 2016 at the IKF complex in Tirupur, India.
