The theme of IITF 2013 is "Inclusive Growth".
Overall, there are about 6,000 exhibitors from India and abroad participating in the fair, showcasing a wide range from electronics and decorative items to fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) and accessories.
This year, Bihar is the partner state and Odisha is the focus state, while South Africa is the focus country.
There are around 260 foreign exhibitors from 21 countries. The participant countries include Japan, Thailand, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Hong Kong, Canada, Italy and the UAE.
The first five days of the fair are only for business-to-business meetings. However, to reap the benefit of the fair on day one many people with special entry passes have thronged stalls.
Many of them ensure that they visit the fair every year because nowhere else do they think they could get garments and various other products from so many different countries.
