Apparel Sourcing concludes on satisfactory note

With 400 exhibitors, Apparel Sourcing, the first European trade fair dedicated to global garment sourcing to have an accessories section, closed its doors on September 15 on a satisfactory note.

“The offer was noted and appreciated, from stockings through underwear, handbags and headgear to scarves,” Messe Frankfurt, the organiser said in a press release.

Jenny Janil, a buyer said, "I appreciated the new, clearer and more open presentation as there was a significant time saving in finding suppliers and it was enjoyable and well organised."

According to Messe Frankfurt, Avantex made a remarkable debut, breathing life into a fashion textile industry looking to the future

"Avantex was good for everyone as it focused minds on the fashion of tomorrow and adding a fourth day of fashion shows proved successful,” Michael Scherpe, CEO of Messe Frankfurt France too said.

Everest Thailand echoed the same sentiments when expressing its satisfaction with Avantex by saying, “We met many visitors and were surprised by their quality and number.”

“Texworld too remains the international meeting place most appreciated by trade visitors and remains a flagship trade fair in the Messe Frankfurt France portfolio,” the organiser informed.

Commenting on Texworld, Nishat Mills from Pakistan said, "We really are delighted as all of our contacts were buyers with 90 per cent of them being existing customers, while the rest were new."

The content of the fairs matched the expectations of French visitors in particular as their numbers showed a strong increase of 12 per cent on the third day, ahead of UK and Spain.

Countries which are traditionally suppliers to Europe displayed strong growth, coming to source new materials and learn about trends or economic conditions in the industry.

“Among them were visitors from Tunisia, Morocco and Portugal, drawn by the dynamism and attractiveness of the manufacturers at Apparel Sourcing,” Messe noted.

However, there was a dip in the number of transatlantic visitors, due to the economic crises in South America and fluctuations in the rate of exchange affecting the whole continent.

“All the three trade fairs confirm that in France, it is the leading international trade event, with 88 per cent of visitors coming from abroad,” the organiser stated.
