The Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) is an apex national organization representing over 10,000 handicrafts manufactures and exporters from India. The Council facilitates business and provides comprehensive information about the sector to international buyers and ensures optimal interface between the Indian handicrafts industry and the buyers.
The EPCH is also a leading B2B trade fair organizer and organizes events of national prominence i.e., IHGF Delhi Fair – Autumn and Spring editions, the world’s largest handicrafts show on Home, Lifestyle, Fashion, Textiles and Furniture.
This year, IHGF Delhi Fair, is slated to be bigger and spectacular in its Spring 2023 edition to be held in March from 15th to 19th, 2023. Resuming its earlier form and stature with each successive show, this fair will be a full capacity show. The response and superb revival can be attributed to exemplary growth in exhibitor participation as well as buyer attendance in the past three editions.
The upcoming 55th edition is structured with a larger display with over 3000 exhibitors, theme as well as collective displays, several curated lines and design affirmations with a cross section of exhibitors ranging from medium and small exporters, artisan
entrepreneurs and designers to India’s leading manufacturer exporters.
A choice of over 2000 products and more than 300 trend specific design developments across 14 display segments, defines this show held at the plush India Expo Centre & Mart, New Delhi-NCR.
In the show’s famed broad based segments of Home, Fashion, Lifestyle, Textiles and Furniture, the product range will feature housewares, home furnishing, furniture, gifts and decorative, lamps and lighting, Christmas & festive décor, fashion jewellery & accessories, spa & wellness, carpets and rugs, bathroom accessories, garden accessories, educational toys & games, handmade paper products & stationery and leather bags.
Collectively they offer a full spectrum of thoughtfully curated concepts and products at a single platform.
Added attractions like Theme Pavilions, Trend Areas, Craft Demonstrations, Ramp Presentations and Knowledge Seminars, besides Buyer Lounges and Refreshment Zones would make attending the show a truly wholesome experience. This five days trade
appointment is a sustained, proven and progressive resource for importers, wholesalers, retail chains and design professionals. Pre-registrations have already begun.
