Making business easier was what this year’s Australian International Sourcing Fair (AISF), co-located with the China Chamber of Clothing & Textiles Expo was all about? Bigger than ever before with more products in each category and many previous exhibitors returning for the third year in a row the 2012 Fair showcased fashion, footwear, textiles, home wares, leather and sportswear products.

They were very happy to have presented at AISF - ''We have met with many visitors and discussed the business possibilities together… we are thinking positively to keep our existence in the coming fairs to be much closer to the market requirements” said Mahmoud Salem, their Senior Merchandiser.

Hemant Bisht from Neeshaan Overseas, India was also happy to have participated - “The response we got was overwhelming and we would definitely like to participate again”.
