The event focuses on fashion, home and textiles and attracts manufacturers, importers, wholesalers, retail chain store buyers, independent retailers and agents.
According to Mr Siddhartha Rajagopal, Executive Director, The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council “The AISF is becoming an important event for the textile and clothing (T&C) industry around the world as it provides a very useful opportunity for doing business Down Under! The Cotton Textile Export Promotion (TEXPROCIL) – a premier textile promotion body of India – organised the Brand India pavilion at the Sydney edition of the show. Exhibitors from India received a good response at the three day show and hope to expand their business in the Australian market.”
India will again feature prominently at the fair which is co-located with the China Chamber of Clothing and Textiles Expo. Over 400 companies from around the world will exhibit the best in fashion, textiles, homeware and handicrafts.
According to Julie Holt, Australian Exhibitions & Conferences, Exhibition Manager “This event, launched in 2010, is emerging as an important regional platform for international sourcing, and it is encouraging to see the growth in interest from some of the leading exporters across India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Fiji and Thailand.
Ongoing major participation by India is a major contributor to the success of the event and it is clear that Indian companies themselves are enjoying success in the Australian market. This year we expect the event to be even more successful with the introduction of a number of important changes including a live demonstration stage and networking events which will undoubtedly lead to even greater commercial outcomes for participants. ”
The growth in international sourcing in Australia is significant. In particular there has been significant growth in the import of home textiles, womenswear and menswear over the past year.
