IIGF, since 1988, was initiated by merging the Export Fairs being conducted individually by CMAI, AEMA, and GEA, with AEPC lending support for bringing in Buyers. AEMA (Apparel Exporters and Manufacturers Association) and GEA (Garment Exporters Association) have recently merged to GEMA, and GEAR from Rajasthan has joined the Associations in recent years to make the IIGFs stronger and larger.
For several years AEPC had been driving the Fairs, and it is for the first time after many years that the IGFA has taken the decision to once again conduct the IIGF’s independently.
