The GTE offers a platform for business exchange for the entire apparel manufacturing and ancillary industry. It offers exhibitors a unique opportunity of one-to-one networking with target customers as well as spreading awareness in all relevant segments of the trade through direct display and media exposure.
The show encompasses the entire breath of garment manufacturing, from sewing machines to finishing and testing to dying and printing to packaging and logistics.
