“The way CMAI has organised everything is amazing. It is a one-stop for any retailer or any brand, If I was to go and meet so many people in Surat, even in ten days I wouldn’t be able to cover. I think it’s a lot of time saving and good connect for vendors and suppliers and brands I think this should happen every year without fail. I would definitely be coming to each and every fair.”
