The 13th edition of HGH India saw visitors from 600 cities and towns nationally. 

Touring HGH India, Mrs. Vandana Kumar, Additional Secretary, Rajya Sabha Secretariat said, “It’s my pleasure to be at HGH India this year. What is most interesting to me is the value that HGH India adds in everyone’s lives. Textiles and handicrafts are one of the largest employers. This trade show showcases Brand India in the best possible manner with our hand-crafted home textiles, furnishings, decorative made-ups, rugs etc. with high value addition.  The other potential of the fair is exports of branded products from India, specially to the emerging markets like South Asian, Middle-Eastern and African countries. HGH India is a platform which is taking India to the world and bringing the world to India. Having over 40,000 visitors in four days is amazing. I also had an opportunity to speak to some of the exhibitors who are a regular at HGH India and that is clearly because of the value that the show adds. It is indeed very impressive and inspiring to see what HGH India has been doing for over a decade.”
