The trade show will have over 100 new Indian exhibitors showcasing their latest innovations in handicrafts, decorative accessories, and houseware. The fair targets retailers across the home category that are looking to replenish their stocks for the Spring/Summer 23 season.

The 12th edition of textile trade fair HGH India is set to take place from December 13–16, 2022, at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Goregaon, Mumbai. Around 400 brands and manufacturers from 30 countries will showcase about 2,000 products in the home textiles, home décor, home furniture, houseware, and gifts categories and over 100 new Indian exhibitors.
In addition to this, the Italian pavilion will feature ten exhibitors showcasing home furniture and decorative accessories from Italy. Organised by the Italian Trade Agency (ITA), the pavilion offers an opportunity to see a wide range of products from high-quality Italian manufacturers. Leading brands will also be unveiling their new lines of mattresses, pillows, and mattress protectors at HGH India 2022.
HGH India had concluded its 11th edition at India Expo Centre, Greater Noida in July 2022 with over 70 per cent of the exhibitors having reported all-time high business. The number of trade buyers across all four categories, home textiles, home décor, houseware, and gifts too exceeded all previous editions, making a total of 37,260 visitors to HGH India 2022.
Buyers that attended the HGH India 2022, July edition had come for sourcing from over 560 cities and towns, which established the growing demand for high-quality and branded home products even in tier 2 and tier 3 cities and towns of India. Most of the exhibitors reported a 25–30 per cent growth in business as compared to previous editions which is a clear sign of markets becoming better. The growing demand for home products shows the pandemic effects are wearing off at the retail level.
