Exhibitor numbers climb 30% at Apparel Sourcing
Jan '16
Apparel Sourcing which begins from February 15-18, 2016 in Paris is experiencing a good increase of around 30 per cent of clothing and textile accessories exhibitors, totaling to more than 230.

“This increase will be visible at the fair, as Apparel Sourcing will take place over the entire length of hall 2 and half of its width, representing a 20 per cent increase in its surface area,” a Messe Frankfurt press release said.

Morocco will make an impressive entrance with a shared pavilion under the auspices of Moroccan Association of Textile and Clothing Industries (AMITH).

Dialog Textil Bekleidung (Textile Clothing Dialogue), a non-profit-making network of businesses in the supply chain, will hold its AGM at the fair on Wednesday, February 17.

“Outside Germany for the first time, with around one hundred participants deeply involved in sourcing matters, it represents a new group of visitors to Apparel Sourcing,” Messe Frankfurt added.

“We are thrilled that this trade fair will have two firsts in February 2016,” said Michael Scherpe, CEO of Messe Frankfurt France.

Firstly, China will have a strong presence with a very varied range highlighting all aspects of clothing manufacture and to which European and Western visitors remain very attracted.

One consistent source of ideas and products for all types of ready-to-wear fashion is the diversity of potential ranges, techniques, multi-sectoral skills and strategic business solutions.

Around ten exhibitors from Hong Kong, slightly more than usual, will round off this showcase; historically more used to working with western fashion labels, but sought above all by the top-of-the-range branded ready-to-wear sector.

Taiwan will be represented by specialists in outerwear, and Pakistan, more oriented towards casualwear, but whose solutions remain multifaceted and, above all, India, one of the vital major players in the sector.

Furthermore, Messe Frankfurt France has used the occasion to organise the attendance of around a dozen major German players. “

The Shawls & Scarves fair will become 'Shawls & Scarves - the accessories showcase', with the prospect of becoming a real benchmark for all accessory sourcing.

“'Shawls & Scarves - the accessories showcase' is thus diversifying towards finished products other than shawls, scarves and stoles, but staying with accessories,” Messe Frankfurt observed. (AR)
