Mr. Arun Roongta, Managing Director, HGH India said, “We are elated to have hosted our 10th edition in Greater Noida this time around. There were over 20,000 visitors from around 460 cities and towns all over India. All our exhibitors saw great response in terms of business- actual and potential. I think this edition has been a great experience, after the lockdown when the industry was looking at coming together, sharing views and re-establishing businesses with a new energy. We had all the top retailers and distributors in the home industry and they expressed great satisfaction with the kind of innovations brought in by the exhibitors.

Agenda 2021, which was to bring the industry back on track, has certainly helped in filling that gap of demand and supply in the home business in home textiles, home decor, houseware and gifts segments. It was indeed a very encouraging and heartwarming edition of HGH India which marked the 10th anniversary of the show.”
