Apparelsourcing, a promising show!!!

Apparelsourcing will be banking on the positive resonance from buyers and the satisfaction shown by exhibitors at the first show last September to boost its potential for next February's show.

Apparelsourcing will be held in Paris-Le Bourget from 13 to 16 February 2012.

The level of exhibitor satisfaction with the first show is very encouraging as 75% professed themselves satisfiedwith the show and with the quality of buyers in particular.

The statement by Yilmaz Aslan, sales director at Mabo Fashion Shirting, a Belgian brand for mid-range and high-end shirts for men & women, confirms this vigorous growth: “We are very content with apparelsourcing as we achieved excellent turnover and made some very interesting international contacts. Results easily surpassed the goals we had set ourselves.”

It is interesting to note that some thirty manufacturers took part especially to launch new products and their level of satisfaction reaches 80%.

The CTAF organised by CCPIT-TEX, which traditionally only graces the September exhibition, has confirmed its attendance at apparelsourcing in February for the first time. This is excellent news for regular buyers, for whom organisation will be made more straightforward with this second annual rendezvous, which is very important for restocking, short-term summer orders and preparation for the winter orders.

When it comes to the buyers, who come predominantly from Europe, North and South America, 83% professed their satisfaction, as Franck Vercauteren, buyer and in charge of Bureau Indigo collections, men's and women's ready-to-wear, both mid-range and high-end, who says “We are delighted to have found what we were looking for at apparelsourcing: a high-quality shirt-maker who was able to respond to our requirements, which are very strict. We have already attended other sourcing exhibitions trying to find a supplier but without success.”

And, one not inconsiderable final point, apparelsourcing benefits from the synergy with the adjacent Texworld textile exhibition in order to further develop.

Bangladesh, very much in evidence: a good alternative for sourcing from Asia
The debate on “The new geography of sourcing”, held at the conference during apparelsourcing last September, firmly demonstrated that buyers are diversifying widely in several Asian countries in order to optimize procurement, in particular in Bangladesh, the 3rd largest supplier of clothing in Europe.

Bangladesh is taking advantage of this economic situation thanks to its diverse ranges of products, its capacity and production costs.

Bangladeshi exports to the European Union have increased in value by 38.5% and in volume by 13.1%, the most significant increase recorded among the 10 major supplier countries to the 27-member Europe, according to the most recent edition of Textiles Intelligence.

Clothing is one of the pillars of the economy, occupying 45% of industry with a huge workforce – almost four million employees work in the sector – and generating 78% of the country's export revenues.
