This biannual event holds significant prestige in the industry and is widely regarded as India’s foremost trade fair, offering a comprehensive sourcing platform that maximises both time and cost efficiency for all stakeholders involved.

Speaking about the NGF 2024 – Spring-Summer Edit, Rajesh Masand, President, Clothing Manufacturers Association of India (CMAI)said, “The apparel industry has encountered a challenging year, with significant consumer purchasing trends inclined towards categories outside of apparel. The forthcoming bookings made during NGF 2024 will serve as a key indicator for the outlook of the segment over the next six months.”

Speaking about the NGF 2024, Rohit Munjal, Vice President and Chairman of the Fair Committee, Clothing Manufacturers Association of India (CMAI) said, “This edition of NGF covers an approximate area 7,00,000 sq ft of exhibition area spread across 7 Halls and anticipates a significant turnout of trade visitors from all over India, which include national level retailers and distributors.”

Speaking about the demand for spring-summer season, Rahul Mehta, Chief Mentor, Clothing Manufacturers Association of India (CMAI), “Retailers continue to maintain a substantial inventory, and we are optimistic that the ongoing End of Season Sale (EOSS) will facilitate the clearance of this surplus stock, leading to a restoration of bookings to normal levels. Nonetheless, it is anticipated that 2024 will be a stabilising period, with no substantial upswing expected in apparel sales during this year.”
