ASSESMENTS
I visited Indian Handicrafts & Gifts Fair 2016, 14th of October 2016 which was held at Indian Expo Centre & Mart, Great Noida, Delhi, NCR. And I visited one of our vendors due to our client’s request. I moved to hall number 8. In hall number 8, there are lots of home textile and floor mats industry. Also, many foreign buyers by Europe and North America, visited this hall and made business opportunity. However, taking pictures is not allowed due to copyright though, I could picture how this fair is fruitful. And, I moved to Hall 12,14, and 15 to have meeting and business card by companies in Kitchenware and Furniture. By this experience, I found out the trends of goods in India.
