According to a representative of Fashion Exhibition Team of Korea Federation of Textile Industries (KOFOTI), “in addition to Hyosung and Kolon FM, Huvis and Toray Chemical Co., Ltd. are also positively considering to participate in the exhibition, [and] the participation of leading Korean companies in PIS can attract a large number of buyers and qualitative growth.”
 
“Preview in Seoul (PIS)” started in 2000, and as the exhibition welcomes its 15thanniversary, Korea Federation of Textile Industries (KOFOTI) will endeavor to mark a new turning point this year through diverse changes in the exhibition’s location, framework, and concepts, thereby embracing a new turning point.
 
Due to limited space, the PIS was not able to accept all of companies that wish to participate. In order to diversify the exhibition products and events, the PIS will be relocated to COEX Exhibition Hall A, which can accommodate 10,368?, 300 companies, and 450 booths.
 
Moreover, this year’s PIS will consists of rapidly growing outdoor market and local Chinese brands at the ‘Premium Outdoor Section’, ‘Powerful Apparel Sourcing Section’, ‘Eco-Material Section’, ‘Functional Material Section’, ‘DTP Section’, ‘Subsidiary Section’, and a one-stop sourcing system.

The exhibition’s theme is Tricky Ordinary (every day’s tricks), Melting Chaos (mixed by novelty), and Innovative Fantasy (fantasy by technology).
 
Fashion Exhibition Team officials of KOFOTI said, “PIS consists of functional, eco-friendly materials, brands, and manufacturers that can attract more visitors and buyers.
