The KnitShow, which is in its 19th Edition (Started in 2000), initially used to be held in two halls, with about 80 exhibitors.

And the exhibitors’ profile covers the entire gamut of Tirupur’s knitwear manufacturing hence visitors get to see the whole process under one roof, yarn to fabric, printing to finishing,” says Krishnan.
“Although initially KnitShow used to get footfalls only from Tirupur and surrounding areas, the Trade Show now attracts visitors from all over India merely because of the importance of the show,” he concludes.
