Cashmere World kicks off in Hong Kong
Sep '12
Cashmere World (27 - 29 Sept. 2012 in Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre) kicks off its Hong Kong debut with big expectations. Visitor numbers are seen to surpass that of last year's show in Beijing, as it benefits from the vibrant business atmosphere that Hong Kong is known for.

With a large number of international companies in the fashion and garment business maintaining a regional presence in Hong Kong from which they control their mainland China and Pan-Asia activities, their buyers are expected to troop to Cashmere World in the next few days to view the latest offerings for this luxury material that is highly coveted in fashion circles.

Mr. Bian Zhenhu, president of the China Chamber of Commerce for Import & Export of Foodstuffs, Native Produce & Animal By-Products (CFNA) who are the co-organisers of the fair along with UBM Asia Ltd, remarked, "Cashmere has captured the imagination of the fashion industry, with demand increasing and many companies now making it a part of their fashion collections.

“This year, Cashmere World goes to the fashion city of Hong Kong. As a major international trading hub, I am sure Hong Kong will bring even more opportunities for the Chinese cashmere business as it provides a fitting venue for the world to learn more about this noble fibre."

Cashmere World presents as comprehensive a view of the cashmere industry as possible, from the breeding of the Pashmina, cashmere goats and yarn and fabric production to sustainability and product design.

It also offers the perfect opportunity for the industry to meet; it is the one place and time when all the sector's major players - producers, fabric manufacturers, designers, marketers and fashion buyers, even scientists and technologists, are together. 

It's the once-a-year chance to meet potential new suppliers and customers, catch up on new techniques and equipment, note developments in cashmere fashion and discuss problems and developments common to all in the industry.

Apart from the exhibits presented by some of the leading producers of cashmere materials and finished goods, the organisers have drawn up a highly informative cashmere conference program that will see talks conducted by such eminent names as Dr. Riaz Ahmad Shah who will report on his successful cloning of a Pashmina goat kid which he christened "Noori".

With Cashmere World being held alongside a well-established fashion exhibition such as Fashion Access, exhibitors at Cashmere World are given the great opportunity to meet and greet a new flock of potential buyers from Fashion Access, particularly those whose product profiles include garments and fashion accessories.

Asia Pacific Leather Fair Ltd (APLF) is a joint venture between SIC Group and UBM Asia. For over two decades, Hong Kong-based APLF Ltd has been providing the global leather and fashion industries with its most important meeting and trading place.
