Shopping malls, supermarkets and large format retail stores may be sprouting all over the country, but there are still a large number of entrepreneurs who would rather not sell their wares through the usual retail channels. They prefer selling directly through trade exhibitions, which are attracting an increasing number of footfalls. Scores of exhibitions are held each year in all parts of the country, big cities and small. Some of the largest exhibitions held in the country are trade events held by the Cll, IT and software expositions
held by Nasscom, MAIT – manufacturers association show, and expositions which cater to interior designs and automobiles, etc. “Publications are also starting to get into the exhibitions business in a big way,” says Hemanshu Chitnis, Director of Exhibitions and Expositions International (Business India and Times of India exhibitions are among the largest). Those who exhibit their goods are happy too; says fashion and textile designer Bhamini Subramaniam, who took part recently in the Femina Trunk Show of designer wear along with designers like Krishna Mehta, Narendra Kumar Ahmed, Naheed Merchant and Pranavi Kapoor from Delhi: “Large retail outlets have a fixed 40 per cent mark up on designer apparel which they take on a consignment basis. At exhibitions the only cost incurred is the one-time fee for the stall and there’s no price loads for consumers.” Also we don’t have to deal with credit in any form which enables us complete monitoring over stocks, she adds. Explains Piyush Gupta, Director of GNH systems, an importer of Chinese electronic gadgets, “The whole retailing system is very complex in India and there are middlemen at every stage. They add their
profit margin and the extra cost is borne by the customer.”
