And this year sees even more on offer for visitors with the expansion of the four country / region pavilions from China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. Held from 25 – 27 September at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, over 170 exhibitors in total are expected to take part.
Fashionable fabrics are again one of the main categories at the fair. Dali Fibre Industrial from China will display their new dual- and tri-colour ‘Draw Textured’ mélange series which boasts better dyeing effects.
