Paperworld and Ambiente, in Frankfurt, there is no mistaking the improved performance of business since the start of the year,” says Michael Scherpe, President of Messe Frankfurt France. 
 
Texworld and ApparelSourcing attest to this trend and are finishing up this season with exhibitions marked by growth of over 11% compared with the show in February 2013. 13,523 visitors from 103 countries arrived to discover the comprehensive and diverse ranges of products offered by the exhibitors during four days of vigorous activity.
 
Exhibitors at the two shows, both old and newcomers alike, have expressed their satisfaction with the quality of buyers and substantial increases in volumes of orders placed!
 
Mr Lin Yunfeng, Vice-President of CCPIT-Tex, stresses that some exhibitors sold far in excess of 200 000 linear metres, even on the first day. At Texworld, Jagtar Tony from the Hong Kong firm of Brar, a manufacturer of shirting, confirms “We are very satisfied with the results from our first attendance at Texworld and in Europe. Demand for shirting is strong and we think it will increase further with demand from countries like Turkey and Brazil.”
 
Sachin Sogani, Senior General Manager at Grasim, one of the divisions in the Aditya Birla group, was also very content: “We’ve worked non-stop for the four days!”. Ermine Erikler, Sales Director at the Turkish cotton producer Larmatex, spoke of “healthy recovery” compared with the previous show and of having made some excellent contacts.
 
The same reaction could be heard at ApparelSourcing, for finished products, in particular for accessories and scarves. Sunil Aggarwal from Anjali Creations, producers of scarves for many ranges, experienced the best show yet, even including all the international trade fairs.
 
He tells us the reasons behind this commercial success: “We have a comprehensive range of products, totally ecofriendly, which attracts all the buyers: from very commercial products in linen or cotton for entry-level right through to more luxurious materials like baby cashmere for the very high end.”
 
This double-digit increase in visitor numbers reflects the healthy state of certain markets like the United Kingdom (+12%), Germany (+10%), Italy (+15%), Poland (+26%) and the improvement in the situation in many countries in Western Europe like Spain (+10%), Greece (+38%), Ireland (+56%) and Portugal which doubled its figures. French visitors, reflecting the current situation, remained stable in number.
