First Cluster Conclave (28th – 29th January 2009)

The event was marked by a market meet amongst cluster artisans and buyers to provide market linkages to the cluster products. Buyers representing both the private sector and government sector participated in the event. A few among them were from organizations like ARTFED, NEHHDC, NERAMAC, Assam Government Marketing Corporation, Jaipur Rugs Corporate Private Ltd etc. Besides a number of local private buyers and representatives of other organizations like FICCI, North Eastern Small Scale Association and ICC also participated in the event. Along with buyers a marketing consultant, a quality consultant and cluster consultant were also present to offer their expert view points.

Among the participating clusters, there were a number of clusters taken up under the SFURTI scheme. These were clusters where some design interventions had already been initiated. There were few clusters adopted for intervention by RRC and these clusters had no earlier market exposure. Participation in the cluster conclave, gave the first exposure to direct contact with buyers.
