Strong Indian participation welcomed at upcoming Global Sourcing Expo


India’s Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has stated that India’s greatest textile strength is its ability to connect the glorious history of Indian tradition with today’s talent technology with traditions. It’s a thread that brings together style, sustainability, scale, and skill.

Many Indian export councils and trade organisations have historically had a strong presence at the Global Sourcing Expo in Australia Melbourne and Sydney. This year is the second year that the event is held biannually and the upcoming edition to be held at the Sydney International Convention Centre from Wednesday 12 to Friday 14 June 2024 will feature another strong showing by India. “As a truly global event, we welcome the participation of a broad range of Indian companies and participation by The Federation of Indian Export Organisations and Council for Leather Exports India.

Sustainability is at the forefront of the 2024 Global Sourcing Expo, recognising the growing calls from consumers for ethical production practices and traceability in the supply chain. Here, Julie believes that India’s wealth of raw materials, particularly natural fibres such as cotton, silk and jute, and preference for traditional manufacturing processes will be a significant advantage. “Sustainability and eco-friendly practices are front and centre for Indian companies, recognising the opportunity to not only help the market, but also capitalise on new marketing opportunities by following sustainable practices.”

Global Sourcing Melbourne held 19 – 21 November at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is also on track to showcase the largest participation by Indian companies since its inception. It is exciting that India is embracing both the Sydney and Melbourne editions understanding the opportunities that the two major markets of Australia confer. It also enables continuity for both exporters and buyers and will further amplify the opportunities for sourcing from India.
