Virtual Buyer-Seller Meet (VBSM)

Welcome to the world of Indian home, lifestyle, fashion, textiles & furniture products. Virtual Buyer-Seller-Meet exclusively for United Kingdom and countries in Europe & CIS Regions from 21 to 24 September, 2021.

The Indian Handicrafts Industry produces one of the widest ranges of hand made lifestyle and utility products. Its workforce of more than 7 million crafts persons with their craft traditions and burgeoning ideas has led to Indian products gaining eminence in the international home, fashion, lifestyle, Textiles & furniture product segments.

Indian manufacturers are endowed with a caliber to blend traditional and cultural elements with contemporary twists that plays a constructive and significant role in successfully catering to several European & CIS markets.

Equipped with inherited skills, techniques and traditional craftsmanship, the industry is highly labour intensive and decentralized, being spread all over the country in both rural and urban areas. Optimum Indian artistry with traditional creative finish aligns in perfect harmony with modern designs resulting in compelling pieces that are well curated and have a story to tell. Such innovative crafts have fascinated many buyers who have made India their prime sourcing destination. International norms related to Health, Safety, Environment and Social compliance are also being followed by established manufacturers/exporters in India, who have not only excelled while being compliant but have also created higher capacities to produce larger quantities with consistent quality.



These diverse manufacturing skills & abilities from India are represented at the Virtual Buyer-Seller Meet (VBSM) organized by the Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH), India, and supported by the Indian Missions in United Kingdom and Countries in Europe & CIS Regions. Among participants are over 100 accredited manufacturers and exporters from all parts of India offering Home Decorative, Gifts including Corporate Gifts; Houseware, Tableware, Kitchenware & Hotel-ware including EPNS; Textiles, Home Furnishings and Made ups; Bathroom Accessories; Lawn Garden Ornaments and Accessories; Lamps Lighting and Accessories; Furniture and Accessories; Carpets Rugs and Floorings; Fashion Jewellery & Accessories; Sustainable Eco-Friendly Crafts; Christmas and Festive Decoration; Candles, Incense Sticks, Potpourri, Meditation and Aromatics; and Handmade Paper Gift Wraps and Ribbons including Soft Toys.

This Meet is an ideal platform for buyers, importers, wholesalers, distributers, buying office, independent retailers, chain store, departmental store, e-tailers, designers, architects, government trade bodies, trading & retailers associations, network with Indian manufacturers as well as source quality products.

With 12 business hours each day and the platform being open to visitation round-the-clock, the virtual BSM will help buyers and sellers get connected and work for product lines for a promising and hopeful season ahead. There are some exhibitors with ready stocks as well.
