The Southern India Mills’ Association (SIMA), founded in 1933 by Sir R.K. Shanmukham Chetty, the first Finance Minister of independent India, represents the entire textile value chain in South India. Since 2001, SIMA has been organizing “Texfair,” an international exhibition for textile machinery, accessories, and spares, benefiting both manufacturers and suppliers. As an event organized by a user industry association, Texfair has consistently received overwhelming responses, providing high value for exhibitors. Recognized as a premier international industrial event, Texfair attracts leading textile machinery, accessories, spares, and service providers from around the globe. Coimbatore, being a major textile manufacturing hub, offers exhibitors significant business opportunities.

The 14th edition of “TEXFAIR 2024,” a four-day International Textile Machinery, Accessories, and Spares Exhibition organized by SIMA, will showcase innovative developments from June 21-24, 2024, at CODISSIA Trade Fair Complex, Avanashi Road, Coimbatore 641 014. The exhibition will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

At a press meet today, Dr. S.K. Sundararaman, Chairman, and Mr. S. Krishnakumar, Vice-Chairman of SIMA, provided details about Texfair 2024. They announced that 240 exhibitors would display their innovations, products, and services across 260 stalls.

The fair aims to encourage new inventions and support import substitution, offering textile mills opportunities to plan their ongoing and future investments.
