|The Apparel Sourcing Week, 2019 is an opportunity for the apparel manufacturers from Asia-Pacific region to explore and capture business from the growing Indian apparel retail segment.|
|It is a globally recognised fact that India is a growing market which today stands at US $ 45 billion, and is expected to reach US $ 115 billion by 2026, a figure which is going to equal the more mature Japanese and German markets. By virtue of being big and growing at a CAGR of 8 per cent, the Indian market (as against Japan at 1.9 per cent and Germany at 0.6 per cent) also offers the manufacturers an opportunity to launch their brands in India as many visiting retailers have shown interest in picking up fresh brands.|
|With the opening of investment opportunity in the Indian retail sector, dozens of international retailers have opened their retail outlets and to fill their racks, they are using the services of their already existing sourcing offices to buy for Indian stores besides buying for the international market.|
|Coming and participating in ASW, 2019 will serve the purpose of not only reviewing the opportunities in the Indian retail market but also renewing contacts for the existing international business opportunities.|
|Taking part in ASW, 2019 also means meeting the Indian and international retailers, brands, franchisers, buyers and buying agents of international retailers and other members of fashion fraternity face-to-face and negotiating prospective deals for the upcoming future.|
|As the closing date of applying for a booth draws near, fill in the application form ASAP before it is too late.|
