INTERFILIERE Hong Kong got a very high international attendance on day one which reaffirmed the importance of Hong Kong as a centre for intimates & swimwear.

The overall feeling at INTERFILIERE Hong Kong was unanimous, exhibitors are reassured and finished the show with confidence while the visitors met qualitative exhibitors and participated in value-adding seminars and conferences.

170 international exhibitors took part at INTERFILIERE Hong Kong showcasing their latest collections, patterns and techniques spread over the 5000SQM exhibition hall of the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. The exhibitors’ products covered the full spectrum of the intimates and swimwear sector from fabrics, accessories, lace, embroidery, textile design to OEM/ODM and technology.

Despite a 4% decrease in the overall attendance of INTERFILIERE Hong Kong over the 2 days, the trade show maintains its quality in both exhibitors and visitors. 60% of the visitors are major buyers including CEOs, managing directors, heads of purchasing or buying departments as well as designers.
