The Japanese market is the third largest export market for the American apparel industry after Canada and Mexico. Year to Date (June 2011) U.S. apparel exports to Japan was $125.1 million, a 6.1% increase from the previous year.. With the strong Yen, this is the best time for U.S. companies to enter or expand their export profits to Japan.

Opportunities for U.S. exhibitors include direct contact with fashion buyers, potential agents, and distributors from throughout Japan. Attendance is expected to exceed 20,000 over the three-day show.

At this year's IFF in January, approximately 700 companies from 23 countries exhibited their products to over 26,000 visitors. Exhibiting at the show will put you in direct contact with fashion buyers, potential agents and distributors from Japan.
