About Giftex

Trade & Technology Exposition Co. (India) Pvt. Ltd. was established in 1987 as an exhibition organising company and several events on different themes were organised thereafter.

Giftex was first launched in 1988. Today this annual event occupies all the five halls of Nehru Centre and yet at times this capacity is not enough to accommodate all the prospective exhibitors. At this exhibition bulk orders are booked, but no sales are permitted.The mission behind the launching of GIFTEX, 30 years ago, was to create a common platform as a meeting place for sellers and buyers of Gifts and Stationery.

The event now also encompasses in a big way the Jute Consumer Products as well as Handmade Paper & Products, with major support from large government organisations such as National Jute Board, Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India, the Directorate of Handmade Paper & Fibre Industry and West Bengal State Export Promotion Society. Hence, GIFTEX is now identified by its new and broad spectrum logo GIFTEX as would be observed from its registered trade mark.
