ApparelSourcing gears up for upcoming Sep 15 show
May '14
ApparelSourcing Paris is gearing up for its 7th show, from 15 to 18 September this year, and the outlook is optimistic. There has been an increase in the number of registrations received compared with last September’s show, also from returning exhibitors.
The European rendezvous for sourcing expects to welcome more than 200 international exhibitors: a rise of 10% compared with the show in September 2013!
The major producer countries like China, Bangladesh, India, Hong Kong, Pakistan, Turkey and Vietnam have already confirmed that they will be attending in order to show their new products and solutions to European buyers. This is an offer that is unique in Europe, with all types of sourcing gathered on the same platform: local sourcing from Europe, short/medium term from Turkey and long-term from Asia.
As Michael Scherpe, President of Messe Frankfurt France, emphasises: “The success of ApparelSourcing Paris confirms our strategy of offering finished products and relevant solutions at the best price to buyers who are faced with the challenges posed by the increasing number and faster pace in the frequency of collections.
They need to have all types of sourcing on the same platform in order to organise placing their orders more efficiently. Buyers will have a wide variety of collections and a whole range of services to choose from, starting with the most standard like CMT to development of bespoke products for knits, dresses and blouses, casual wear, sportswear, denim, shirting, suiting, outerwear, evening wear, lounge wear, business wear, formal wear, swimwear, corporate wear and accessories.
A major new feature: made-to-measure in tailoring, bespoke finishing on a single-piece basis, will add to the diversity of the existing ranges offered at the exhibition! 15-18 September 2014.
New classification for product ranges
In view of the exhibition’s growth and in order to improve overall clarity of the offer, we will be introducing a new classification next September, which will correspond to Essential, Specific and Expert.
It will make it considerably easier to search for products and for buyers to organise their procurement. Visitors will be able to learn about it in the guide to the exhibition and by checking the signs affixed to the stands.
- Essential
For manufacturing companies that make «basic» products and manufacture straightforward garments like T-shirts, sportswear articles and entry-level knitwear.
- Specific
Indicates manufacturers who possess particular skills and offer quality craftsmanship for specific products like technical sportswear, outerwear, tailoring, shirting, beachwear or lingerie. These are quality products at the best possible prices that are aimed primarily at the retail sector for fast fashion.
 - Expert
This singles out manufacturers who have acquired a very special expertise and who offer affordable luxury: premium-quality craftsmanship, very specific articles, frequently in limited lines, at very competitive prices, for brands, store labels and retail chains.
