Eurovet steps to 'Greener' Interfilière Hong Kong – Mode Lingerie
Organized by Eurovet, the world's leading lingerie and beachwear trade show organizer and supported by Hong Kong Intimate Apparel and Industries' Association (HKIAIA), the fifth Interfilière Hong Kong – Mode Lingerie will be held on March 30-31, 2011 at Hall 5G, the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
This year, the leading sourcing platform for intimates and beachwear has taken a new name, “Interfilière Hong Kong – Mode Lingerie 2011” to put forward the 20-year old world renowned brand "Interfilière". The annual trade event for world class intimate apparel leaders this year has taken a “green” look with the aim at fostering green behavior of the industry. Not only do all pamphlets are printed with recycled paper, but greener behavior are also promoted with questionnaires sent to exhibitors
to study their green initiatives in business and product development.
The returned questionnaires showed that the exhibitors recognized
the importance of “greener” behavior and about one fourth of them had already had “greener” initiatives and policies
implemented. In terms of “greener” production, ecological fabrics such as organic cotton, bamboo and recycled polyester fabrics, are introduced and Oeko-Tex certificate is obtained to guarantee an exemption of harmful products in the fabrics. In addition, exhibitors have started investing in recycling system and power saving equipment to minimize pollution.
Interfilière Hong Kong – Mode Lingerie has formed a strong strategic relationship with Hong Kong Intimate Apparel and Industries' Association (HKIAIA) for five years. This alliance has proven that this trade event is truly the authoritative platform in the region for the lingerie and beachwear industry. It is also an annual international event with the highest quality as only industry-related visitors are invited. There were over 3,600 qualified and selected visitors from 60 countries all over the world at the Interfilière Hong Kong – Mode Lingerie last year.
