VASTRA - 2017, the 6th edition of VASTRA, will establish its name to newer heights and create a unique space in the textile / apparel sector all across the globe. It would be a new paradigm in terms of relevance, quality and new product offerings in textiles and apparel while presenting enhanced business opportunities for all stakeholders.

One of the added attractions of VASTRA-2017 will be the combination of B2C component along with B2B. VASTRA-2017, as usual, will remain a B2B trade fair. First three days will be devoted exclusively to B2B and the last day i.e. 24 th September, 2017 will have B2C activities, involving retail sales. This will provide simultaneous opportunities to those exhibitors who may be looking for directly reaching the end users as well. VASTRA-2017, in its new setup, will provide much more enhanced business opportunity to all stakeholders.
